ESPN's Marcus Spears gives major shoutout to Rutgers' Raiqwon O'Neal for impressive big-man TD
Rutgers left tackle Raiqwon O’Neal scored a touchdown on Saturday, again.
The Rutgers big man notched his second career touchdown run to put the Scarlet Knights up 31-3. The play came late in the third quarter against Indiana and pretty much sealed the win for Greg Schiano’s squad. If the play looked familiar, it’s because it is the exact lateral trick play that O’Neal found the end zone against Ohio State last year.
ESPN’s Marcus Spears called out O’Neal for making his second “big-man” TD.

Officially, the TD goes into the books as a 7-yard rush, as the transfer was a lateral rather than a pass. So for his career, O’Neal is averaging 5.5 yards per carry, as his TD against the Buckeyes last year was a 4-yard run.
The Scarlet Knights head to State College, PA on Saturday, Nov. 20 to take on Penn State. Kickoff is set for 12:00 p.m. ET, stay tuned to see if another O’Neal TD is in the scheme.
