Kansas State RB Deuce Vaughn embarrassed TCU with an ankle-breaking TD run, and fans were in awe
Kansas State running back Deuce Vaughn has been a star for the No. 10 Wildcats all season, and Saturday in the Big 12 championship game against No. 3 TCU, he showed up in a big way for his team.
For the eighth time this season, Vaughn broke the 100-yard mark, and he did it in huge part thanks to this monster 44-yard touchdown run to give Kansas State a 28-17 lead early in the fourth quarter before it won, 31-28, in overtime.
On 2nd-and-5 at TCU’s 44, the junior running back got the handoff, and, thanks to some stellar blocking, was able to avoid the chaos at the line of scrimmage fairly easily.
Vaughn then made a Horned Frogs defender miss and literally fall flag while grabbing the first down. But he just kept going, embarrassing TCU’s defense on this play. But the real jaw-dropping moment was when he made another defender miss with an ankle-breaking move seen more often in basketball before cruising into the end zone.
Seriously, this is some standout speed and footwork from Vaughn.
Vaughn finished with 130 rushing yards on 26 carries, plus the touchdown, along with 30 receiving yards.
