Western Kentucky Tumbles Out Of Tunnel In Season Opener
Thank whatever gods or universal deity there may be because the 2016 college football season made it's official debut on American soil Thursday night.
Technically the college football season kicked off Friday, Aug. 26 when the University of California Golden Bears defeated the University of Hawaii Rainbow Warriors 51-31 in Sydney, Australia.
But last night was the first time it really felt like college football was back with multiple games on at once, some close contests and our first upset alert with unranked Appalachian State almost defeating No. 9-ranked Tennessee.
Considering most programs either played their first game of the season Thursday night or will be playing it this weekend, every team would like to follow the old idiom and put their best foot forward.
Western Kentucky quite literally did the opposite of that in their season debut Thursday when the Hilltoppers players tumbled over each other coming out of the tunnel at their home stadium.
This entrance was...not ideal. https://t.co/GTqIZ8B2Xn

The good news: that was the biggest miscue of the night for the Hilltoppers, who went on to a 46-14 rout of the Rice University Owls.
Don't worry Western Kentucky you can only go up from here, just don't lose your footing along the way.
