The 45-yard kick was one of six he made on the day, giving the 49ers their third consecutive victory. Gould, who played for the Nittany Lions from 2001-04, was responsible for 19 of San Francisco’s 25 total points on the afternoon; the other six came on Jimmy Garoppolo’s 5-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter.
Penn State alumni made waves across the NFL in Week 15. Paul Posluszny clinched the first postseason berth of his 11-year career with the Jacksonville Jaguars after a dominant 45-7 victory over the Texans.
Most notably, Jesse James’ potential game-winning touchdown catch against New England was overturned after a lengthy review, allowing the Patriots to escape with a 27-24 win.
