GIF: Carlos Hyde goes Superman on insane 19-yard touchdown

Ohio State's stud tailback does bad, bad things to Iowa's defense.

Carlos Hyde is 235 pounds. Backs who are 235 pounds are supposed to do certain things, like mash the opposing defense between the tackles, and certainly Hyde has done that. But 235-pound backs are not supposed to do certain things, things that involve amazing displays of athleticism, and yet here is this play by Hyde:

The touchdown was a slightly big deal, as it gave No. 4 Ohio State a 31-24 lead in the fourth quarter over the surprisingly frisky Iowa Hawkeyes. But hey, for Iowa, sometimes it just doesn't matter how hard you try when the opponent is doing insane things like that.
