When you're a small school going up against a national powerhouse like the Clemson Tigers, there is absolutely zero room for error. You are already a major underdog, so any major mistakes and you can probably forget about any chance at coming away with a victory.
So when a South Carolina State kick returner mistakenly fumbled the ball, it was all doom and gloom.
Thinking he had called for a fair catch (presumably), he then threw the ball back toward the ref, not realizing it was still a live ball. Clemson took full advantage of this and hopped on the pigskin for a touchdown.
This would prove to be one of many mistakes during a rough day for the SC State Bulldogs, who went on to lose this game 59-0 in Death Valley.
