One of the keys to winning in football is simply knowing the rules. This was not the case for South Carolina State receiver Ahmaad Harris, who gifted Clemson a touchdown on Saturday.
Right after a 10-play drive ended in a touchdown for the Tigers, Harris made a terrible blunder on the ensuing kickoff. He received the ball in his own end zone, and rather than take a knee, he flippantly tossed the ball to the ref.
Unfortunately, the play was still live. Clemson scooped up the ball and scored one of the easiest touchdowns you’ll see all year.

The score put Clemson up 21-0, and the blowout was on.
