One Ole Miss player got the weirdest running into the kicker penalty

Of course, you never want to get caught running into the kicker, but one Ole Miss player might have an excuse: he was sorta backflipped into the Oklahoma State kicker.

The two teams were playing in the Sugar Bowl on Friday night, when Oklahoma State was going for a punt early in the game and defensive back Carlos Davis went hard for the block. Unfortunately for Davis, a blocker was in the way of his attempt, but instead of Davis being blocked, he was sorta thrown haphazardly into the air, where he did a flip and made contact with the Oklahoma State kicker.

It clearly wasn't intentional, but it is definitely a weird and funny way to have that penalty called. The penalty was inconsequential, as Ole Miss won the game 48-20.
