Michigan is having a day against No. 22 BYU.

It held a 28–0 lead with just under seven minutes to play in the first half, and that was thanks in part to a crazy touchdown run by running back De’Veon Smith.

Smith broke off 60-yard dash run to give the Wolverines a 21–0 lead early in the second quarter.

He received the ball from quarterback Jake Rudock and ran up the middle, towards a giant cluster of players. After almost three seconds, Smith emerged on the other side of it and sprinted downfield.

He ran with a defender for around 15 to 20 yards before breaking his clutches at the 15-yard-line and waltzing in for the score.

Smith is over 100 yards on the day, and Rudock has three total touchdowns.
