Found September 06, 2013 on College Spun:
The NFL season kicked off tonight, and the Denver Broncos easily took down the defending champion Baltimore Ravens. On one of the game’s crazier plays, Denver linebacker Danny Trevathan picked off an absolutely horrid Joe Flacco pass and took it the other way for a touchdown — or so he thought. Replays showed that Trevathan showed clearly let go of the ball in celebration before he crossed the the plane into the end zone, so the play was ultimately ruled a touchback instead of a touchdown — ouch. This wasn’t the first time we’ve seen this — it happened to Desean Jackson of the Philadelphia Eagles a few years back. But it also happened in college football on one of the game’s biggest stages. In 2011, LSU DB Tyrann Mathieu, of course known as The Honey Badger, made the same mistake, celebrating prematurely. Funnily enough, he chimed in on Twitter about Trevathan’s error: He tried to do the badger move back in the 2011 SEC championship game … Touch break 59 pic.twitter.com/Fxfa5x7Ot6 ...
