Purdue RB Zander Horvath clears Iowa defender with jaw-dropping hurdle
Believe it or not, Boilermakers can fly! Zander Horvath all but confirmed that on Saturday.
In Purdue’s season opener, the Boilermakers are locked in a tight contest against Iowa. At the half, the Hawkeyes held a three-point lead, but Purdue keeps fighting hard time and time again.
On this play, it was Horvath that provided the spark and big gain. After bouncing to the outside, Horvath ran through an arm tackle and up the sideline. It was then that an Iowa defender had Horvath in his sights, but he was unprepared for what happened next.
As the defender went for the low hit, Horvath went up and over for an incredible hurdle. His execution on the move was absolutely flawless:

Unfortunately, Purdue turned the ball over shortly after Horvath’s big run.
