I'm watching Pitt play West Virginia. Tied up 17-17 in the 3rd quarter with Pitt on the 10 yard line. They run the ball, Pitts O-line blows WV off the line but the runner is swarmed at the 5 yard line. I saw something I never saw before in any football. One of Pitt's lineman grabbed the running back around the waist and as WV tacklers are pulling him down this guy pulls UP and pushes forward. With the running back still pumping his legs they all crossed the goal line together. Pitt-24 WV-17
Can't do that in the NFL, violates a rule.
