During the 2014-15 season, Gaglianone went 19-for-22 on field goals and 59-for-61 on extra points. In 2015, Gaglianone was named to the Big Ten all-bowl team for kicking a 29-yard field goal with seven seconds left to send the game against Auburn into overtime, and kicking the game winning 25-yard field goal in the first overtime period.
In July 2015 Gaglianone was listed on the Lou Groza Award preseason watchlist. However his sophomore season was not as good as his breakout freshman season. In his sophomore season Gaglianone went going only 18-for-27 on field goals. He was able to make eight of eight kicks from within 30 yards, however, he missed three kicks in the 30s, 40s and 50s. He made game-winning field goals against Nebraska in October and USC in the Holiday Bowl.
On July 25, 2016, it was revealed that Gaglianone would wear No. 27 for the upcoming 2016 football season in honor of his friend, Nebraska Cornhuskers football punter Sam Foltz. He had previously worn No. 10.
To open the 2016 season Gaglianone was 3 for 3 on field goals (30, 47, 48 yards) against #5 LSU Tigers, including the game-winning field goal in the last two minutes of the game. With the fourth game-winning field goal of his career Gaglianone set the record for the most in school history. Following the game Gaglianone was lauded with multiple 'Player of the Week' awards, including Big Ten special teams player of the week, Rose Bowl Big Ten player of the week and one of three Lou Groza Award Stars of the Week.
