In this photo taken Saturday, Oct. 9, 2010, Notre Dame kicker David Ruffer, right, hugs holder Ryan Kavanagh after kicking a field goal against Pittsburgh during the second half of an NCAA college football game in South Bend, Ind. Ruffer is a former standout golfer who use to fling his clubs in anger. He's a transfer student, a walk-on and a former kicker in dormitory football. Now he's wearing the gold helmet of Notre Dame and so far, he's perfect on field goals _ 16-for-16, a school record.(AP Photo/Michael Conroy)
