Former LSU quarterback Danny Etling rushed for 70 yards total in his four years on the field in college football.
On Thursday night (Aug. 30), he took one run 86 yards for the New England Patriots. Eighty-six.
Etling pulled an option out of the running back's stomach and no one was accounting for the 7th round pick.
He hustled down the right sideline and 86 yards later, found himself with a rushing touchdown.
After playing sparingly in the Patriots' first three preseason games (2-of-6 passing for 21 yards with three rushes for seven yards), Etling played the entire game on Thursday night in a 17-6 victory over the New York Giants.
Etling was 18-of-32 for 157 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. He rushed seven times for 113 yards.
In college football, sacks go against a quarterback's rushing yards so when Etling was a freshman at Purdue, he finished the season with minus-99 yards on the ground. He had minus-5 as a sophomore before transferring to LSU.
Once he was with the Tigers, Etling rushed for 46 yards as a junior and 128 yards as a senior. His longest run during his LSU career was a 19-yard run last season.
