Wagner Football Player Runs In Wrong Direction Following Blocked Punt by Cornell (Video)

After Cornell blocked a Wagner punt, a Wagner player mistakely picked up the ball and ran in what he apparently thought was the right direction.

On fourth down, Wagner lined up in punt formation. That's when things went from bad to worse. The punter muffed the snap, and was then forced to evade defenders to try to get the punt off. However, Cornell defenders were there to block the ball.

The ball then shuffled across the field before it was picked up by a Wagner player, who proceeded to run toward his own end zone. He was eventually tackled by a Cornell defender at the five-yard line.

Check out the video below to watch the crazy play unfold.
