And he did it with style.

In the second quarter of Super Bowl 50 with his team trailing by 10, former Oregon running back Jonathan Stewart got the Panthers on the board in impressive fashion. With the ball on the 1 yard line and a wall of humanity in front of him, Stewart took the only clear path: up and over.

Stewart lept over the pile and into the end zone for Carolina's first touchdown of the game to make it 13-7 with 11:58 left in the second quarter. It was the first touchdown ever scored in a Super Bowl by a former Oregon Duck.

At the half, Stewart has only seven yards on six carries, but he has the only touchdown of the half for the Panthers. This image from the Associated Press shows just how high off the ground Stewart got in order to score the touchdown.
