And most recently, she made an appearance on Inside Edition, where she discussed the moment that made her internet famous.
Gurd’s older brother is is a tight end for the Buckeyes, and her father played for Ohio State as well, but the blue-eyed beauty admitted that she was pretty nervous when the when the cameras caught her:
“I was distraught at that moment. I was just praying and hoping that we would make the kick … the team would go to the National Championship.”
When asked if she found a date from her new-found fame, she played it coy:
“I don’t know… maybe.”

Unfortunately, the Buckeyes ultimately lost and killed their hopes of a National Championship, after blowing an 11 point third quarter lead, and ending with kicker Noah Ruggles hooking the ever livin’ hell out of a 50-yard game winning field goal attempt.
Ohio State ultimately lost to the Dawgs 42-41.
