65+ Yard Field Goals in CFB History

Johannson may own the longest in the history of college football, but 67 yards is the longest in NCAA history. The NCAA record is shared by multiple players.

These long-range attempts were much easier before the NCAA banned the use of a tee in 1988.

The longest made field goal in NCAA history belongs to Martin Gramatica, who drilled a 65-yarder with Kansas State against Northern Illinois in 1998.

He went on to win a Super Bowl and have an impressive NFL career lasting nearly two decades.

67 yards: Tom Odle, Fort Hays State vs. Washburn, 1988. (NCAA) 67 yards: Joe Williams, Wichita State vs. Southern Illinois, 1978. (NCAA Division I)

67 yards: Russell Erxleben, Texas vs. Rice, 1977. (NCAA Division I) 67 yards: Steve Little, Arkansas vs. Texas, 1977. (NCAA Division I)

65 yards: J. T. Haxall, Princeton vs. Yale, 1882. 65 yards, Tony Franklin, Texas A&M vs. Baylor on October 16, 1976. (NCAA Division I)

That last dude, Tony Franklin, was known for his barefoot kicking style.

Coincidently, the Texas A&M University kicker set the record for the longest field goal in D-I history (65 yards against Baylor University) the same day Johannson drilled his record field goal.

He then hit a 64-yard kick in the same game, making him the only kicker in NCAA history to make two 60-yard field goals in the same game.

In recent years, we've seen 60+ yarders from kickers like Texas Tech's Jonathan Garibay.

Yes, we're surprised longtime Oakland Raiders and former Florida State kicker Sebastian Janikowski didn't fall on this list.

And because you must have been wondering, the longest drop-kick field goal in college football was Pat "Kangaroo Kicker" O'Dea for Wisconsin against Northwestern in 1898.

That was good from 62 yards in the middle of a blizzard.
