Gavin Wimsatt torches Indiana with game-breaking 80-yard TD run
Gavin Wimsatt and Rutgers are looking to put the finishing touches on a bowl-clinching victory against Indiana. The Scarlet Knights took a big step forward early in the fourth quarter.
Facing a 2nd-and-5 play from deep in their own territory, the Knights dialed up a read-option play. Wimsatt eventually tucked the ball as the first defensive lineman bit on the running back, and then the quarterback really went to work.
He made one man miss in the hole and found a crease to bounce outside and down the sideline. Wimsatt was past the last line of defense in the blink of an eye and churned up the open space.
