Miami's Njoku flips into end zone for TD

There are many ways to score a touchdown. We’ve seen incredible catches and thrilling runs. However, Miami’s tight end David Njoku added a new entertaining way to post some points.

Fairly early in the first quarter against Pittsburgh, the Hurricanes drove down the field, looking to put the game's first points on the board. And that is exactly what they did.

Miami faced second and eight from Pitt’s 12-yard line. Quarterback Brad Kayaa dropped back and dumped the ball off to the junior from New Jersey, who nabbed the ball at about the 14. He began to run towards the end zone, but one of Pitt’s defenders blocked the way. He leaped towards the line, flipping into the end zone.

Not too shabby. The Hurricanes would go on the get the win on this day, 51-28.
