USC Trojans punter Kris Albarado botches snap, still gets off a beauty

Sep 13, 2014

After mishandling a high snap, USC punter Kris Albarado pulls a rabbit out of his hat on this play against Boston College. Rather than just fall on the ball and take the massive yardage loss, Albarado picks it up, scrambles a bit and gets off a beauty of a punt that would net 37 yards and falls near the 10-yard line.

But I'm sure if you ask him, he meant to do that. Unfortunately, the punting was a little too frequent for the Trojans, who fell to the Eagles, 37-31.

Albarado punted 10 times for a USC offense that struggled to find a rhythm in either the pass or the run game.
