Most notably, Oklahoma’s Joe Mixon and Clemson’s Ray Ray McCloud were the worst perpetrators of this.

One player thought he was clear on his way to a punt return touchdown, but there was one opponent still making an effort to stop him before the goal line and he did just that. That guy completely speared the runner and he didn’t get the touchdown he thought he had while his two lead blockers stood there astonished while they just let that guy almost destroy their teammate.
