While we had college football games last week for Week 0, Week 1 is where the full slate of games comes, and we're already seeing some exciting celebrations, including one from Liberty Flames cornerback Kobe Singleton.
Going up against Bowling Green at home, the Flames led 7-0 until Singleton had a 36-yard interception return for a touchdown. Bowling Green quarterback Connor Bazelak threw it into quadruple coverage, overthrowing his receiver, and Singleton was right there to come down with it.

Not only was the pick-six magnificent here, but Singleton celebrated in the best way possible on the sideline.
After picking it off, he returned to the sideline and put on a Joker mask to celebrate with his teammates and fans.
