Watch: Minnesota TE Maxx Williams hurdles defender on long touchdown
With a defender giving chase, Williams sprinted along the sideline and encountered another defender, who tried to tackle Williams. Williams leapt over the defender, kept running and dove over another would-be tackler as he crossed into the end zone.
The touchdown gave Minnesota a one-point lead.
Over 11 games in the regular season, Williams recorded team highs in receptions (29), receiving yards (471) and receiving touchdowns (7). The 6-foot-4, 250-pound redshirt sophomore earned first-team All-Big Ten honors and was a finalist for the Mackey Award given to the nation's top tight end.
He is expected to enter the NFL Draft.
