Mevis was 3/4 on his field goal attempts in the game and made all three of his extra points. The senior kicker has always had excellent leg strength, but he struggled on short kicks at times last season. This year, he’s already cemented his legendary status.
Mevis’ 61-yard field goal is the longest in SEC history.
