Fiesta Bowl Kickers Comparison

David vs. Goliath?

Many people have compared the matchup between UT’s Jeff Hall and FSU’s Sebastian Janikowski to David vs. Goliath. This is an unfair statement to make to either of these two fine place kickers.
The truth is that if the game were to come down to the leg of either one, there’s a good chance that they would come through with flying colors.

Janikowski won the Lou Groza award after nailing an FSU and ACC record 27 field goals. Hall has made 19 of 24 field goals on the year, including game-winners against Syracuse and Florida.
