Only at the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl could you receive an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for too many french fries on the field. 

Nevada was leading Tulane 38-20 with under 20 seconds left in the game when Wolf Pack players decided to shower head coach Jay Norvell with fries before following it with the sport's traditional Gatorade/Powerade dump. 

However, as fries fell on Norvell, they also scattered onto the blue field, covering as much as five yards. Referees threw flags, handing Nevada a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for the early celebration.

Tulane lined up on the 35-yard line, and Cameron Carroll ran the ball back for a 65-yard touchdown as time ran out.
