Kansas State’s Alex Barnes... hurdler.

Barnes risked life and limb to get some extra real estate.

He may be on the ground here, but he wasn’t a few minutes ago.

K-State’s been running the ball all over Charlotte. But Alex Barnes apparently got bored while it was still only 7-0. On 2nd-and-2 from the K-State 38, Barnes decided eight yards wasn’t enough.

We don’t recommend this as a general rule, especially since Barnes might have gotten even more yardage by not slowing down and simply juking -- two plays later, Jesse Ertz did exactly that and ran for a 35-yard score -- but it was sure fun to watch.

Cats lead 21-7 with two minutes left in the first quarter.
