Kelly, Kelly, Kelly

Kevin Kelly has moved beyond just breaking Penn State and Big Ten records. The Penn State kicker is 32 points from becoming the NCAA's all-time leader in career kicking points. With three games to go, the Langhorne, Pa. native has an outside shot of pulling off the feat. Still, aside from all the records, Kelly's career has been without a signature game-winning field goal. There was, of course, the 29-yarder he booted in the third overtime of the 2006 Orange Bowl. But I'm not sure that's a game he would ranked up there with his best considering he missed two earlier opportunities to win the game. Here's this morning's story on all things Kelly.
