Just a few plays after he shrugged off a nasty targeting hit, Washington State Cougars quarterback Gardner Minshew responded with a captivating touchdown run to cap off an incredible drive.
On second down inside the 10-yard line, Minshew stood in the pocket with no one to throw to and pressure closing in quickly. The senior spun out of the blitz, turned the corner, saw the open space then dove into the end zone to give the Cougars a 14-0 lead.

Just add this to the extraordinary highlight reel from Minshew’s 2018 season. While it’s unfortunate it will soon be coming to an end, at least we’ll get to see him in the Senior Bowl.
