Video: Auburn's Kerryon Johnson Hurdles An Arkansas Defender On 19 Yard Run

Kerryon Johnson of Auburn hurdles an Arkansas defender.


Auburn's uncharacteristically struggled to score points so far this season, but Gus Malzahn may have found something that works on the first touchdown drive of the day for the Tigers. Down 14-0 to Arkansas, Auburn drove 96 yards down the field for a score. The highlight came on a 19 yard run by freshman running back Kerryon Johnson, who hurdled a Razorback defender. The video is available at ESPN, for those viewing on mobile.

Johnson's been running out of the wildcat, and has 27 yards on five carries, three of which came on the scoring drive which was capped by a Peyton Barber touchdown. Auburn trails Arkansas 14-7 at the half, but the Tigers have some momentum after the 16 play scoring drive.
