4. Doug Flutie's Hail Mary

Doug Flutie did not invent the Hail Mary Pass--credit for that goes to Roger Staubach, who threw a last-second touchdown pass in a 1975 playoff game and later claimed he said a Hail Mary while tossing the ball. But nine years later, Flutie threw the most famous Hail Mary of them all. Down 45-41 to the Miami Hurricanes, Flutie and his Boston College teammates took the field with 28 seconds remaining. Two plays and thirty yards later, Flutie scrambled and tossed a high, end-zone-bound pass as time expired. Gerard Phelan caught the ball, but Doug Flutie caught all the glory in one of the most memorable moments of college sports history.
