WSU-UCLA putting the special in special teams

Tim Burke / 30FPS

While it'd be fun to leave this photo context-free, I should probably explain. Let's walk this back for a moment. On the UCLA touchdown that came prior to the kickoff, Washington State cornerback Daniel Simmons didn't hear the whistle and attempted a late double-leg. The result was offsetting personal fouls after UCLA retaliated.

Then came the extra point. After the play, Washington State was flagged for not one but two personal fouls. Since those penalties are enforced on the kickoff, the ball was moved up a cool 30 yards. Thus UCLA lining up to "kickoff" from the Washington State 35.

The Bruins squibbed this, by the way, and Washington State returned it to the 15. If the score wasn't so out out of hand already, there's little doubt an onside kick would be the right call here. Maybe next time.

For those tracking at home, Washington State has had two field goals blocked, one of which was returned for a touchdown, and two punts blocked.
