ANIMATED: Tavon Austin Cannot Possibly Be Driven Out Of Bounds

West Virginia Mountaineers weapon Tavon Austin has scored his second touchdown of the 2012 Orange Bowl, giving WVU a 21-17 lead early in the second quarter; yes, I said early the second quarter. Both came on neat little jet sweeps from Geno Smith, and both involved steps near the goal line that came about as close to the out-of-bounds line as they possibly could.

Not much you can do about an opponent who's able to teleport in and out of bounds whenever he pleases. The Clemson Tigers have ample firepower of their own, but are going to need to find a way to slide the chalk boundary in a few yards if they want to slow Austin.
