Kansas Jayhawks running back Pooka Williams is really, really fast. The Texas Longhorns found this out firsthand on Friday in the fourth quarter.

Williams appeared to be gobbled up at the line of scrimmage, as Texas’ defensive line plugged up the middle. Then, he bounced off a would-be tackler, went to the left and hit the afterburners while leaving multiple Texas defenders in the dust.


The touchdown gave the Jayhawks their first points of the game, pulling them to within two scores of the Longhorns.
