You Won’t Believe What Western Kentucky Football Was Forced To Do During The Miami Beach Bowl
It’s college football bowl season, meaning there are a ton of strange moments that we wouldn’t otherwise see during the regular season, with coaches taking chances, teams making epic comebacks and players doing crazy shit.
One thing that I’ve actually never seen in my life is what the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers did during their Miami Beach Bowl game against South Florida.
That’s because the Toppers actually punted the ball on 4th-and-goal due to some unforeseen circumstances pushed them all the way back to the Bulls’ 38-yard-line after being on their opponents 6-yard-line.
Here’s how Western Kentucky got into the shitty situation:
- 1st-and-goal at the 6-yard line: Run for no gain and a 15-yard personal foul penalty against Western Kentucky
- 2nd-and-goal at the 21-yard line: Sack for a loss of seven yards
- 3rd-and-goal at the 28-yard line: Sack for a loss of 10 yards
- 4th-and-goal at the 38-yard line: Punt
Standing just 18 feet from, potentially, scoring a game-tying touchdown, this has to be one of the biggest fails of the college football season, right? I mean, pinning the Bulls deep into their own territory is nice and all, but, fuck that, give me the points!
