Brian Snead's first three carries in Austin Peay's game against Tennessee State on Sunday literally couldn't have gone better.

The former Ohio State running back put his speed on full display as he took all three of those carries to the end zone for a total of 186 yards.

You can watch Snead's 75-yard, 67-yard and 44-yard touchdown runs below.

He finished the first quarter with 204 rushing yards, setting an FCS record in the process.

The rest of the game went more quietly for Snead, who finished with 227 yards on 23 carries, but Austin Peay held on for a 27-20 win.

Dismissed from the Ohio State football team after playing in just two games for the Buckeyes as a freshman in 2018, Snead had rushed for just 157 yards on 47 carries and no touchdowns in his first four games at Austin Peay, who played three games this fall before starting its spring season with the rest of the Football Championship Subdivision last week.

He's in his first season at Austin Peay after spending the 2019 season at Iowa Western Community College.
