There is nothing football fans love more than fat guy touchdowns. It’s even better when a defensive tackle is brought onto the field near the goal line and runs it in for the touchdown, which is exactly what Clemson Tigers defensive tackle Christian Wilkins did on Saturday.
It all happened thanks to two massive penalties by the Florida State Seminoles defense, including a targeting ejection against Hamsah Nasirildeen.
Sitting outside the one-yard line, Clemson called upon its 315-pound defensive tackle on third down to punch in the score. The massive lineman followed the hole and even showed a little burst then turned it into power as he pushed his way into the end zone.

Wilkins has been a force on defense since his arrival at Clemson, now he is showing he can even add a little offensive element to his game. It’s been an outstanding senior season for the senior and moments like this make it even better.
