College football is nothing without linemen scoring touchdowns. (Well, okay, it’s something, but it’s not nearly as fun.)

This is a particularly great example of the genre, too, because it’s the rarely seen designed play for the offensive lineman.


As Stephen notes, O’Neill is a former TE, which slightly cheapens the feat, but the overall play design makes up for the traditionally comic sight of a large man with no ball skills bowl through the defensive backfield. (Or navigate an interception return, depending on the situation.)

But! A big man touchdown is a big man touchdown, regardless of context, and Pitt needed it, as they squeaked out a 37-34 win over Georgia Tech to move to 4-2.
