Wofford junior Stephon Shelton made a play in his FCS playoff game against Northern Iowa Saturday that he’d like to forget. Shelton’s team had just allowed a touchdown to the Panthers and trailed 21-14 towards the beginning of the fourth quarter. When the kickoff came to him, he caught it in the end zone but forgot one critical step for a touchback: you have to take a knee!
Shelton never went down, had the ball knocked out of his hands, and Northern Iowa fell on it for a touchdown. That was the difference as Wofford lost 28-21. Here is a video of the blunder:
Thanks to the win, Northern Iowa advances to face fourth-seeded Montana on Saturday.
