There probably won't be a more wild two-point conversion this year than the one that took place near the end of regulation between SMU and Rutgers.

Jimmy Traina of Sports Illustrated posted the video on his Instagram account:

That's quarterback Garrett Gilbert scrambling and finding Jeremy Johnson for the conversion to tie the game at 35-35 with just over a minute left in the fourth quarter.

Thanks to ESPN for providing a video of the wild play:

There aren't many quarterbacks who would be able to not only keep the play alive long enough, but to then throw across their body for the conversion. Also, not a bad play by Jeremy Johnson to get his feet down.
