One of the most memorable plays in Penn State Nittany Lions history has now received the ultimate honor of being inked—on the person who made the play.

Back in 2013, Penn State receiver Allen Robinson made a clutch play in the final minute against the Michigan Wolverines to set up the game-tying touchdown.

Nittany Lions quarterback Christian Hackenberg took a shot at the goal line on 2nd-and-10 from the Michigan 37-yard line. While it was not an easy play to make, the 6'3" Robinson caught the pass over a Wolverines defensive back to put the ball at the 1-yard line with 27 seconds left.

Hackenberg scored a one-yard touchdown on the next play to tie the game at 34 and send it to overtime. 

Penn State pulled out a 43-40 victory in quadruple overtime. Robinson, now a Pro Bowl receiver for the Jacksonville Jaguars, finished the game with 84 yards on five catches and one memory that will last a lifetime. 

Now, the 22-year-old Robinson has paid tribute to the outstanding catch by getting it tattooed on his body. It's off to a good start, but he noted that there is still work to be done.
