The fantastic finish to the Notre Dame-Michigan State game on Saturday was one that will be remembered for a long time. Forget that neither team has a realistic shot at playing for national title at season's end.

Forget that neither team was ranked in the top 25. It was still one of those plays that diehard fans of college football will never forget. 

It was one of the gutsiest calls you will ever see in college football. Head coaches in major college football no longer have the luxury of being outlandish or gutsy in their playcalling.

In this day of increasing popularity and money being filtered into the biggest programs there is a much shorter leash on most head coaches. 

A crazy play call that ends up losing a key game could cost a man his livelihood. It hasn't always been that way, and even still, the gutsiest of the gutsy are few and far between. 

Over the years there have been a few memorable gutsy play calls. For your viewing pleasure we have compiled a video slideshow of seven of the gutsiest play calls in recent college football history. 

Enjoy!
