Texas Longhorns kicker makes amazing backflip field goal

College football players are getting viral attention this offseason with some pretty spectacular displays of athleticism, and the latest must be seen to be believed.

Texas kicker Nick Rose pops a short field goal through the uprights midway through a backflip, with some help from Longhorns backup quarterback Trey Holtz.

The number of attempts it took before a good take could be captured on video is a mystery. Regardless, kickers are definitely trending. We've seen in the past week a tongue hold for a kick, as well as a nose hold.

And it's not the first time the backflip has been incorporated, either. Recall the backflip catch from North Carolina A&T running back Tarik Cohen.
