There's not a college football fan around who doesn't remember Doug Flutie's Hail Mary pass into the Orange Bowl's night sky that landed into the arms of Gerard Phelan, giving Boston College a 47-45 victory over Miami on Nov. 23, 1984. Flutie not only went on to win the Heisman, but he put Boston College on the map. In the two years after Flutie's heroics, enrollment at Boston College jumped 30%.
It became known at the "Flutie Effect." The better a school's high-profile teams perform, the more enrollment will soar.
