Watch: South Florida's Tyre McCants drags UCF defender 20 yards for a touchdown

It's no surprise that the South Florida-UCF "War on I4" rivalry game was going to have its fair share of points. 

But the way that South Florida scored its first touchdown of the game was something else.

Tyre McCants caught a screen pass from Quinton Flowers on the 50 yard line, followed a pair of nice blocks, shook off one tackle, but appeared to be caught from behind at the 20 yard line. 

A UCF defender had a fistful of McCants' jersey, but the receiver didn't seem to notice (or even care), and dragged an extra 200 pounds all the way to paydirt.  

You'll have to see it to fully understand:

Of course, UCF responded with a TD of its own on the next drive, and we have a feeling those won't be the last scores of the day.
