Bryce Perkins is special, y’all. The Virginia Cavaliers were struggling in the red zone in the first half as they hosted the Louisville Cardinals. Perkins found a hole and let it rip for a 36 yard run, and finished with some flair:

Virginia would go on to score their first touchdown of the game three plays later and get the 13-3 lead over Louisville.
Driving in the fourth quarter after the Virginia defense forced a fumble, Perkins took to the air again, this time leaping a defender for the touchdown that gave the Hoos a commanding 27-3 lead with just over six minutes left in the game (watch to the end of the below clip).

Damn, Bryce. Damn.
According to Coach Mendenhall, Perkins’s leaps were better than he had even seen in practice.
BRONCO: [on Bryce Perkins] There was an amazement factor today. I've seen him hurdle, but maybe not that high... I've think we've all seen a lot of players hurdle someone below the waist, but that might have set a record for hurdling a player.— Virginia Football (@UVAFootball) September 22, 2018
