SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Big Ten Network Reporter Elise Menaker threw a two-point conversion pass during Illinois’ spring football game.
Elise Menaker was on the sideline, broadcasting the spring game for Illinois on the Big Ten Network when head coach Bret Bielema walked over to her.
“You gotta get into the huddle,” Bielema told Menaker. So she handed the microphone over to the coach and ran into the huddle. It was pointed out on the broadcast that she changed into football gear during the spring game in order to throw the two-point conversion pass.
Menaker completed the pass in the end zone and the orange team had a 54-6 lead in the third quarter. Her touchdown celebration included the floss.
