Nebraska punter kicks ball off teammate's head, gives up touchdown

Friday November 28th, 2014

Nebraska lined up for a punt in the third quarter of its game against Iowa on Friday and then had a bad snap lead to the punter firing a line drive off a blocker's head and the Hawkeyes snagging the ricochet and running it in for a touchdown and a 24-7 lead.

While watching the play live some people got excited that they had seen the rare "Butt Punt." However, a closer review showed that the ball did indeed go off the lineman's head.

Butt punt aficionados can still hold on to this treasure from Youngstown State earlier this season though.
