Watch: Auburn DT Derrick Brown trips to deny himself epic scoop and score

There are few things better than a defensive lineman scoring a touchdown. There are few things more heartbreaking than a defensive lineman being denied a touchdown on account of the turfmonster.

Auburn defensive tackle Derrick Brown, officially listed at 318 pounds, was well on his way to six points against the Florida Gators, having scooped up a Kyle Trask fumble deep in his own territory. With nothing but green ahead of him, though, Brown tripped over his own feet at the Florida 35-yard line, denying himself an epic touchdown.

Oh, it’s a tragedy. That would have gone down as one of the great big guy touchdowns of all time. To make matters worse, the trip cost the Tigers dearly, as they threw a drive-killing interception two plays later.

It’s better than losing a touchdown this way, as it wasn’t really the result of negligence of arrogance. Due to the rarity of what could have been, though, it may hurt even more.
