The Louisiana Tech football team had a miserable outing on Saturday, falling 57-21 to Mississippi State.
But while the final score was not what the team had hoped for, the most embarrassing moment of the game came when the Bulldogs lost a whopping 87-yards on a single play.
Louisiana Tech was facing 2nd-and-goal, when the snap sailed over the quarterback’s head.
A wild chase ensued for the ball, with hilariously awful fumble recovery attempts every step of the way. When Louisiana Tech finally fell on the ball to regain possession, they were faced with a 3rd-and 93. Seriously.
Check out the blooper-filled highlight below:
As you would expect, the length Louisiana Tech had to go for a first down ended up making NCAA history.
Before Louisiana Tech’s 3rd-and-goal from its 7, the most yds needed for a first down since 2004 was 57 (Georgia, 3rd down, vs TENN, 2011). https://t.co/aBj175dAX1
