It didn't take long for a big play to spice up the opening day of FCS play in the Jacksonville State–Chattanooga matchup. That's thanks to JSU running back Roc Thomas, who exploded for 76-yard house call late in the first quarter.
Thomas, a former Auburn running back, ran for nearly 800 yards and 7 touchdowns last season for the Gamecocks. He's well on his way to breaking those numbers this fall thanks to one big play.
Watch Thomas hesitate in the hole, wait for an opening, break a tackle and then fly on the way to the 76-yard score:
