WATCH: Ray-Ray McCloud flubs punt return TD by dropping the ball before goal line

By Jesse Reed

Has DeSean Jackson taught us nothing? For reasons that defy logic, every now and again a football player will drop the ball before scoring a touchdown. That’s exactly what happened Saturday for Clemson wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud, who flubbed a touchdown on a punt return for this very reason.

McCloud took the punt return 74 yards, only to make the critical mental error at a key moment in the game.

Shockingly, No. 2-ranked Clemson was up by just three points against Troy heading into halftime. A bit of better judgement by McCloud would have helped the Tigers with a bit of much-needed momentum for the second half.
