The extra point often isn't the most exciting play in football, but St. Thomas turned what appeared like it would be your standard PAT attempt in a one-sided victory into one of Saturday's top plays on Sports Center.

The Tommies beat Carleton 80-3 to win the MIAC crown on Saturday, in doing so, they locked up a spot in the NCAA Division III playoffs.

But the biggest highlight in the victory for the Tommies came on a no-look behind the back flip for a two-point conversion.

On the play, Tommies holder Charlie Dowdle blindly threw the ball high over his head to tight end Matt Christensen for the two-point conversion.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so we'll cut the description short and let you enjoy the play for yourself.
