Neil O'Donoghue's 57-yard field goal against Tennessee in 1976 still remains tied the record for the longest field goal in Auburn history. In 1975, the soccer player from St. Bernard College transferred to Auburn and played in only the third college football game he had ever seen. In his first collegiate season, O'Donoghue connected on nine-of-10 field goal attempts from inside the 43. He was an excellent long-range kicker and made a 54-yarder against Mississippi State and another for 53 yards against Virginia Tech in 1975. In 1976, he made three attempts of over 50 yards and was named All-American by the Football News.
