It's officially Big Man Touchdown week. Two days after Miami Dolphins guard Robert Hunt made his internet-breaking catch-and-run against the Baltimore Ravens, Rutgers tackle Raiqwon O'Neal showed hands and open-field moves of his own in a 38-3 beatdown of Indiana. And unlike Hunt, O'Neal's play put points on the board. 

Late in the third quarter of Saturday's game, O'Neal took his pass set before running to the flat. Quarterback Noah Vedral then sprinted right and made a cross-body throw to O'Neal, who raced forward and dove into the end zone for a seven-yard score. The play gave Rutgers a resounding 31-3 lead with :32 remaining in the third. 

O'Neal has flashed playmaking abilities before. The South Carolina native scored from seven yards out on an eerily similar play against Ohio State in 2020, but his team lost 49-27 in Columbus that game. 

The Big Man Touchdown encapsulated a day in which everything went right for the Scarlet Knights. Rutgers scored a touchdown within the game's first two minutes and kept its foot on the gas the rest of the way, dominating the Hoosiers in Bloomington. 

O'Neal and Rutgers (5-5) will travel to Penn State (6-3) for a battle with the Nittany Lions next week at noon.
