First and goal at the five-yard line, down eight points in the fourth quarter. Seems like a perfect time for… a handoff to your 6’6″, 300-pound offensive tackle? Huh?

Well, that’s what Pittsburgh did on Thursday night against Virginia Tech, and it worked! Check out this beautiful end-around touchdown run from Pittsburgh’s Brian O’Neill:

And that dive! Awesome. Then again, not every offensive lineman is a former tight end and is as athletic as O’Neill is. You may remember him from this touchdown just a couple weeks ago:

This guy is an offensive machine and we hope Pittsburgh keeps using him in their offense the rest of the season. Unfortunately, O’Neill’s efforts weren’t enough, as Pitt fell 39-36 to Virginia Tech.
