I’m absolutely certain that there is nothing in the playbook for this.
Louisiana Tech faced a third down and 93 yards to go during its game against Mississippi State on Saturday night.
That’s not a typo. Third and 93. Good luck with that one.
Here is what happened: Louisiana Tech had a second-and-goal play from the Mississippi State 6-yard line when disaster struck on a botched snap. The ball was kicked, batted and knocked backward in a wild scramble to grab it.
Louisiana Tech eventually recovered, but not until the play had lost 87 yards. Again, not a typo. The ball was at the Louisiana Tech 7-yard line when the play ended. And that is how you end up with a third and 93.
Take a look at the video from CBS Sports:
