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.
