NORMAL -- An impressive play on Illinois State University's football field landed the college in the national spotlight. But it wasn't thanks to the football team.

The Gamma Phi Circus made ESPN'S top 10 plays this weekend. The student group performs acrobatic stunts.

This weekend it acted out a "human field goal." One member was launched through the uprights.

Unfortunately that's the closest any ISU student got to the end-zone. The Redbirds were shut out 17 - 0 by Southern Illinois University.
