SMU's Garrett Gilbert did a lot of things you're not supposed to do when faced with a collapsed pocket. But his Rutgers pursuers were much too slow, and Gilbert pulled a little something out the Tecmo Super Bowl playbook to get the two-point conversion and tie the game at 35.
Gilbert scrambled about 20 yards from the line of scrimmage and managed to find his way back to the line to make a throw across the chest—a big no-no. But wide receiver Jeremy Johnson was open enough to catch. Conventional football wisdom/common sense be damned. Then again who needs such things when you're killing it with 485 yards and five touchdowns while thowing 45-for-70. As amazing as this sequence was, SMU still fell to Rutgers 55-52 in overtime.
