Few things in sports match the excitement of a good Fat Guy Touchdown. They’re always unexpected and hilarious. And they’re special because of their rarity. Here are 10 of the best FGT’s in football history, in no particular order. I refuse to discriminate against anyone both large and in charge.
In 2006, Alabama found itself in the Independence Bowl. I know, hard to believe they ever stooped so low. With nothing to lose, they dialed up this clever little play to left tackle Smith. The brilliant call worked so well that the referee’s initially thought it was illegal. The penalty flag was waived off and Smith celebrated with a giant hot reuben topped with ALL the fixings.
This 63-yard fumble thing helped Troy upset Missouri in 2004. You literally have never seen this work before and you’ll likely never see it work ever again.
I was standing by the pylon when thie Michigan State nose tackle and his hair leapt into the end zone. The earth shook. Visually,this one is hard to beat but it should be noted Michigan eventually won.

Mike Ditka took out Walter Payton to give the Ultimate Fat Guy a Fuck You touchdown in Super Bowl XX. It worked.
Who is Mike Patterson? Well, he once did this for the Eagles.
