Byron Marshall pulls a DeSean Jackson, drops ball before end zone (Video)

Byron MarshallByron Marshall had a monster game for Oregon in the Ducks’ season-opening 62-13 win over South Dakota on Saturday night in Eugene, but it would have been even bigger if not for a mental mistake.

Marshall took a second quarter handoff and broke through the defense for what should have been a 54-yard touchdown. However, he dropped the ball just before crossing the goal line, which turned a touchdown into a touchback.

“Out of all the good that happened tonight that’s really the only thing replaying through my mind,” Marshall said after the game, according to the Daily Emerald. “Stuff like that shouldn’t happen.”

No, it certainly should not. Marshall still had 228 yards and two TDs in the victory.

Here’s another look at the blunder:
