Video: Western Kentucky players trip over each other coming out of tunnel

Thursday night marked the first real night of college football and the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers were excited to hit the field against the Rice Owls. However, it seemed they were a little too excited and ended up embarrassing themselves coming out of the tunnel.

One player tripped running out and it started a Tour de France type collision as others just kept falling over onto the pile. Thankfully, no one got hurt during the pileup.

However, I don’t think the Hilltoppers let the embarrassment get to them too much. The quickly opened a 30-7 halftime lead over the Owls and lead 46-14 in the fourth quarter of that game.

Blowing out your opponent is certainly the best way to make fans forget that you had a pretty embarrassing moment to start the season.
