One of the most incredible plays in college football this season took place on Saturday, and chances are you missed it. It was a late-night game in Vegas between two unranked Mountain West teams, Fresno State and UNLV. Not exactly a thrilling matchup, but my goodness did it feature a thrilling play.

With 7:59 to go in the third quarter and UNLV facing 3rd and 11 at their own 9-yard line, Rebels quarterback Dalton Sneed ran a play-action and stepped back to throw, but the Bulldogs brought pressure that forced Sneed to run for his life. Sneed ran back into the end zone and barely avoided taking a sack for a safety, and continued to scramble before finally finding some open field… and incredibly running to the other end zone for a 91-yard touchdown. It might as well have been about a 115-yard touchdown given all of the running Sneed did backwards and horizontally.

Here’s video of the amazing run, which is the longest run in UNLV history:

Those are 91 of the 147 rushing yards Sneed had, and he added 129 yards in the air, in the 45-20 UNLV victory.
