Want to see a play where the offense loses nearly 90 yards?

Well, here you go:

An errant snap just sailed past Louisiana Tech quarterback J’Mar Smith. Smith sprinted back 20 yards to try to pounce on the loose ball, but it deflected further down the field. About five different Mississippi State players had the chance to recover the fumble, but Tech wideout Cee Jay Powell ended up being the man to recover the fumble.

The play started at MSU’s 6, and ended at the Louisiana Tech 7. Yes, the Bulldogs had third and goal from their own 7-yard line. That’s an 87-yard loss and some incredible hustle by Powell to cap off an incredibly silly play.

Our game-tracker was very confused by what happened.


The best part is just how incredulous the announcer was throughout the entire play. He just could not believe what he had seen.

You probably won’t see anything like that again this season.
