Video: Brian Kelly loses bet, puts defensive lineman at QB for a play

Earlier in the year Brian Kelly made an academic bet with nose tackle Louis Nix. As the spring game got closer, Kelly realized that he was going to end up on the losing end of the bet and asked Nix what he wanted in return.

Nix answered with what any 340 pound defensive lineman would want from their head coach....an opportunity to score in the spring game.

Kelly explained the situation in his post game presser, and video of the big man touchdown can be seen below.

Who doesn't like to see a big fella score (especially on a quarterback draw out of a five wide receiver set)?
