Kent State linebacker Andre Parker picked up a fumble by Towson punt returner Derrick Joseph and ran it 58 yards the wrong way during opening night of the college football season.
It happened just before the end of the first half of Thursday's game as the Kent State punt grazed Joseph, making it a live ball. Parker did the correct thing by picking it up, but obviously got confused as to which direction to run in.
Ironically enough, Towson players tackled Parker as he was running towards his own end zone
, which would have been a safety and two points for Towson.
Fortunately Kent State had a 24-7 lead at the time and Towson didn't score before the half ended, so Parker's mistake didn't cost his team.
Football season, ladies and gentlemen. Gotta love it.

There’s nothing better for a defensive player than to be able to not only recover a fumble, but to scoop it up and take it in for a score. On the flipside, there’s nothing worse for a defensive player than to scoop up a fumble and run the wrong way.

College football kicked off last night with a bang. The South Carolina-Vanderbilt game was a good one, but who would’ve thought that the Kent State-Towson game was going to steal headlines. Sophomore linebacker Andre Parker thought he was just doing his job covering a punt. For whatever reason, he bugged out, scooped up the ball and began running in the opposite direction! Twitter...

The college football season got off to a great start last night, between Vanderbilt giving No. 9 South Carolina quite the scare and Minnesota pulling off a 30-27 win in thrilling triple overtime fashion. But I assume that like me, most of you were glued to a TV that was streaming the ESPN 3 action of UCF and Akron from an iPad, because that was clearly the game of the night. While...
