Here’s an example of what not to do when attempting a punt in a college football game.
Portland State punter Hayden Cowden accidentally took a knee while receiving the long snap before getting his attempt during Saturday’s game against Oregon State.
Unfortunately for him, a player is ruled down once his knee touches the field in college football.
But that wasn’t the only flub involving a punter during Week 1.
Earlier in the day, Wyoming punter Tim Zaleski completely missed on an attempted punt against Iowa.
Not a good day for punters. At least they’ll be on SportsCenter, albeit the Not Top 10.
Editor’s Note: This story was updated on September 24, 2018 to identify the correct Portland State punter as Hayden Cowden and not Ben Niesner.
