Video: Michigan State RB Le'Veon Bell hurdles Boise defender in open field

Saturday September 1st, 2012

The Olympics ended nearly three weeks ago, but Michigan State running back Le'Veon Bell apparently didn't get the memo. The junior, who is listed at 244 pounds, usually runs through defenders, but on Friday against Boise State, Bell showed off enviable hurdling technique.

On the Spartans' third play of their first series of 2012, Bell took a handoff, broke into the open field and then went over a Broncos defensive back who was going low to try to tackle Bell. The gain went for 23 yards, and Bell later finished off the drive with a touchdown.

Here's video of the London-worthy play:
