Ohio Bobcats’ quarterback Armani Rogers registered a 99
yards touchdown against Buffalo Bulls on Thursday.

Buffalo had the ball on the Bobcats’ 1-yard line in the first
quarter but couldn’t get it into the end zone. On fourth down, the Ohio defense
stood firm and stopped Matt Myers. However, this meant that the Ohio offense
would be forced to play in some risky terrain.

Rodgers’ touchdown has equalled the NCAA record for
the longest touchdown run by a quarterback.

the previous record with a 98-yard running touchdown against Utah State in
1979, according to ESPN Stats & Info.

Villanova in the Liberty Bowl in 1962. According to The Oregonian, the game was
played in Philadelphia in the middle of December, with temperatures only
