The Irish were down 7 points late in the fourth quarter, to Iowa as I recall. Near our own 40, 4th & long. Leahy had Lattner back to punt. What the coach didn't know was in the huddle captain Jungle Jim Mutscheller called for Lattner to pass it to him. He took the responsibility and said if he didn't catch it, he'd keep on running right out of the North end of the stadium. Jim did catch it, we got the TD and the game ended in a tie.
Of course, we students liked the fake punt that worked, but loved it to death when Mutscheller spilled the beans.
