WATCH: USC Trojans Adoree' Jackson Returns Kick Off For Easiest 100-Yard TD Return Ever

Kick off returns are not supposed to be easy.

That's pretty much why most kick returns don't go beyond the 20-30 yard line, but when the cover team kind of forgets to hit anyone and just overruns the play you end up with the...

Instead it was a game filled with errors, mistakes, and penalties. It was the kind of game where you can't afford to lose a key player--like a starting linebacker...
