It’s 2020 and players are still prematurely dropping balls before scoring touchdowns.
During Saturday night’s Alabama-LSU game, LSU Kayshon Boutte pulled a DeSean Jackson and let go of the ball right before crossing the end zone.

The LSU WR so clearly did the DeSean Jackson and dropped it early… refs continue to be cops. pic.twitter.com/Zb3sX5Zq4r

Thankfully for Boutte his teammate Jontre Kirklin picked up the ball in the end zone after he dropped the ball.

Jontre Kirklin saw that from a mile away.
The second Kayshon Boutte dropped the football at the 1-yard line, Kirklin ran over and picked it up and looked at the ref.
Ref then signaled for the TD.
Really heads up play by the senior. And very much a freshman play on other end.
