Wayne grad Robert Landers thrilled college football with a fat guy TD that didn’t count

Wayne grad Robert Landers left his mark on Ohio State’s opening night game at Indiana — even if it didn’t count. 

The Buckeyes defensive tackle electrified social media by scooping up a loose ball in the third quarter and rumbling into the end zone for a touchdown. 

Along the way he broke multiple tackles, pulled off a slow-motion spin move and did his best Walter Payton impression with a “Show pony kick,” but it was all for naught. 

Upon review. the play was ruled an incomplete pass, not a fumble. 

It was still awesome, though.
