Watch: J.J. Taylor returns kickoff for touchdown

The rare kickoff return touchdown for Arizona

NCAA Football: Utah at Arizona Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Wildcats don’t usually return kickoffs for touchdowns, but when they do it’s really weird.

In 2014, Cayleb Jones returned a Washington State onside kick for six points.

In 2018, J.J. Taylor returned a Southern Utah squib kick for six points.

The last time Arizona returned a kick of this length for a touchdown was 2010 when Travis Cobb took an Iowa kick 100 yards to the house.

If Taylor’s not going to get anything going as a running back, at least he’s making his presence known on special teams.
