Excessive celebration? Illinois TE celebrates TD with...twerk session
Illinois tight end Daniel Barker gave Illinois their first lead of the day over Penn State during the first quarter but that wasn’t all.
He ended up celebrating the touchdown by twerking in the endzone before his teammates came over and started celebrating with him.
Here’s a replay of the hilarious twerk:

That touchdown was Barker’s second of the season and his first since Dec. 5 against Iowa. So far in the game, he had two receptions for 50 yards along with that TD.
For the season coming into this game, he had 16 receptions for 214 yards, plus that touchdown against the Hawkeyes. He was able to get his longest reception of the season during this game against Penn State though with a 38-yard snag.
The Illinois lead would be short-lived after this touchdown and celebration though. Penn State went on to not only tie the game but take the lead 28-21.
The game is currently being televised by FS1.
