Purdue's Carson Wiggs drills 67-yard field goal in spring scrimmage

Just before the end of the first half in Purdue University's Black/Gold spring game on Saturday, kicker Carson Wiggs came on to the field to attempt a 67-yard field goal. He nailed it.

If it had been a regular season game, Wiggs' converted field goal would have tied a Division I record. If it had been in the NFL, it would have set the new record.

Wiggs was always known for having a solid leg, but this just exceeds the usual field goal conversion. Quite impressive, if you ask me.

Obviously, it was the Boilermakers senior kicker's longest career field goal and despite it happening in a spring game, may end up being the highlight of the 21-year old's college career.

It'll surely draw the attention of NFL scouts, at the very least. Good luck to Wiggs and the Boilermakers in 2011.
