The “Running Man Challenge” dance craze has completely taken over college basketball, so it’s only right that college football should hop on the wave and ride along too.
Toward the end of a recent Rutgers football spring practice, coaches had the players line up to run through the Oklahoma Drill, which involves two players, a ball carrier and a defender, lining up across from each other for a one-on-one measure of pure football power. The drill has been around for decades and is employed by every college football program in the country.

But when the whistle blew, the two players about to go head to head broke into the Running Man Challenge Dance instead. The dance soon swept over the other Rutgers players, who had circled around the drill, eventually turning into one enormous dance party.
