The Washington Huskies decided to punt at Oregon State’s 40-yard line in the first quarter on Saturday night in Seattle. To say the decision backfired would be kind.

The snap went well over the head of punter Race Porter, who raced back to inside Washington’s 15-yard line before picking up the ball, and then still attempting a punt. The punt was blocked by the Beavers, and then the ball rolled all over the field again. Eventually, Oregon State’s Jaydon Grant picked up the ball, and then ran it into the end zone for a touchdown.

It’s nearly impossible to properly describe this play, so just see it for yourself (and perhaps while listening to Yakety Sax):

Ah, Pac-12 after dark.

The sad thing is that it may not even be the most embarrassing special teams play from college football on Saturday. This also comes one week after Illinois punted on 4th-and-goal.
