The first six games of the 2021 season have not gone the way the Bobcats have hoped. But Ohio quarterback Armani Rogers gave fans a reason for optimism on Saturday.

The Ohio Bobcats (1-6) were facing the Buffalo Bulls (3-4) on Saturday afternoon. And since the Bobcats have been struggling all season, no one was expecting to get off to such a hot against Buffalo. But that’s exactly what they did. They scored three touchdowns in the first quarter and took a commanding 21-0 lead.

However, the offensive outburst was without a doubt highlighted by Rogers, the Ohio quarterback. After the Ohio defense was able to come up with a stop on fourth-and-goal from the 1-yard-line, Rogers jogged out onto the field with the rest of the Bobcat offense. He was set up in the shotgun about five yards back in his own end zone. He then took the snap and took it 99 yards to the house in the first quarter of the game.

The official Twitter account for the Ohio Football team posted a video of the awesome run. Take a look by clicking down below:

“Longest Rushing TD by a QB in NCAA History. No Big Deal.”

If you watched closely, you can see that the left side of the Bobcats’ offensive line did a terrific job of sealing the edge and helping their QB get to the sideline. Once Rogers was able to make it outside, he got even more help in the form of one of his wide receivers blocking downfield. The wideout held the block all the way until it looked like about the 30-yard-line.

College Football Fans React to Insane Run from Ohio Quarterback

Saturday’s 99-yard touchdown run from Ohio quarterback Armani Rogers was impressive. There’s no question about that. But what makes it even better is that it is now officially the longest rushing touchdown by a quarterback in college football history. The official ESPN Stats and Info Twitter account confirmed as much.

“Ohio’s Armani Rogers’ 99-yard Rush TD is the longest ever by a QB in NCAA history. Arizona State’s Mark Malone held the previous record when he ran for 98 yards vs. Utah St. back in 1979.”

Meanwhile, Bobcat fans took to Twitter as well to comment on Rogers and his awesome touchdown run.

“This is awesome! Wish we would have won!” one fan said.

“And you don’t include his name?” another person asked. “Armani Rogers @A_Rogers4 #recordbooks”

And finally, someone else pointed out that the big play from the Ohio quarterback captured the attention of major networks.

“Armani Rogers just got an Ohio Bobcats football highlight aired in the middle of the second quarter of an SEC broadcast on CBS.”
