On second-and-four Calhoun took a handoff from quarterback John Stocco running left. He cut off of blocks from Matt Lawrence and Joe Thomas near the line of scrimmage, at which point Stocco reached his arms up in the air to signal touchdown. Calhoun sprinted for the corner and had to power his way to the goal line as two Warriors converged. With an impressive final effort, Calhoun reached out with his left arm and hit the pylon for the touchdown.
The touchdown run gave Calhoun 21 rushing touchdowns this season, tying Ron Dayne's single-season school record set in 1996. Calhoun has a school-record 23 total touchdowns this season.
