Vanderbilt's Zach Cunningham Shows Off Leaping Ability On Blocked FG

Zach Cunningham just made an incredible play to block a field goal at Auburn.

Vanderbilt trailed Auburn by a score with 1:41 left in the game and the Tigers elected to attempt a field goal to virtually put the game away, but Zach Cunningham had other plans.

Check out the Vandy standout make one of the best plays of the college football season:

Talk about absolutely unbelievable timing, not to mention athletic ability. Players are not allowed to jump directly over the center, but this is a legal play as he leaps between the guard and center.

Cunningham was literally standing over the holder before the kicker made his move to attempt the kick.

Vanderbilt got the ball back, but was unable to pull off the magical comeback. On 4th-and-18, quarterback Kyle Shurmur completed a pass after it slipped through the hands of two Auburn defenders, but later threw an interception to give the Tigers the win.
