“Just fall on the ball!”
Here’s something you don’t see everyday. Louisiana Tech was getting blown out by Mississippi State in the fourth quarter. However, they were trying to somewhat save face with a late touchdown drive. They had the ball at Mississippi State’s seven yard line with second down and goal. They then fumbled the ball on a bad snap and insanity ensued.

Player after player on both teams tried to grab the ball and the ball kept getting knocked further back towards the Louisiana Tech side of the field. Louisiana Tech ended up falling on the ball…on their own seven yard line. They lost 86 yards on the play and then had third and goal (or third and 93!).
This play had very little impact on the actual result of the game but it was truly comical and something I don’t think we’ll see at this level anytime soon.
