Alabama returner gets flipped into a somersault by Missouri punter (VIDEO)

If you're going to get tackled by the punter, you might as well make it look acrobatic.

Alabama's Christion Jones was returning a punt up the middle when he was hit low by Missouri punter Trey Barrow. And Jones went flying.

Jones did a full somersault before he hit the ground, as a post from the Throw The Flag blog caught. He traveled an impressive 4 yards in the air before he landed, which was not only fun to watch but was also the best tackle Missouri made against the Crimson Tide.

Jones' flip got a score of 9.7 from the Romanian judge.
