The Missouri Tigers are hosting Toledo in Week 2 of the season and their defense came up in a big way to give Missouri a 24-9 lead. Mizzou defensive lineman Markus Golden was rushing the passer when he pushed off just in time to grab the interception and scamper 70-yards for the touchdown.
This is as close as we have been to a fat man touchdown this season, so let’s hope the big guys continue to score so we can finally get a fat man touchdown dance. We all know there is nothing better.
For now, Golden’s impressive pick-six will have to do.
Here is a GIF of Golden’s wild score, via SB Nation:
Impressive awareness by the young man. You also have to appreciate how his pushing the quarterback to the ground served as his own lead block to pave the way to the endzone.
The best part of the touchdown? The celebration. He slammed the ball on the turf emphatically as if to say, “This is my house.” Way to ice the cake.
