Western Kentucky wins First Responder Bowl 23-20 on FG

DALLAS (AP) Western Kentucky freshman kicker Cory Munson ran onto the field, then off and then back on. All of that before kicking a career-long 52-yard field goal with no time left after a rules review moved him five yards closer to the goal posts.

And Munson, who'd sliced a 29-yarder wide right on the final play of the first half, closed the game with the kick that gave the Hilltoppers a 23-20 victory over Western Michigan in the First Responder Bowl on Monday.

"I was just breathing and saying to myself: `You got this. Don't worry about the last kick. You got this one. Just stay calm,' and I just swung through it," Munson said. "Next thing I knew, it was up there."
