Auburn quarterback Bo Nix made a play that looked straight out of Johnny Manziel’s college football days on Saturday night against LSU.

LSU led 7-0 in the second quarter, and Auburn decided to go for it on 4th-and-2 at the LSU 24. Nix ran all over the field and couldn’t find anything he liked, with LSU defenders chasing after him. After 10 seconds of running around and with five defenders surrounding him in the backfield, Nix — while falling down — somehow Tyler Fromm in the end zone for a 24-yard Auburn touchdown.

That’s magic. The LSU defense deserved the stop there, but they were just topped by one of the most incredible plays you’ll see in college football this season. What an effort by Nix.

Update: It ended up being a very meaningful play in Auburn’s 24-19 win. Auburn outscored LSU 14-0 in the fourth quarter to come away with the road victory.
