Football player celebrates too soon

Utah's Kaelin Clay's mishap has become a candidate for play of the year, except it's for all the wrong reasons.

In a recent game against Oregon, the senior wide receiver appeared to be in the clear for a touchdown. However, unfortunately he forgot one fairly important detail as he crossed into the end zone.

So instead of completing a 78-yard play for a score that would have given Utah a 13-0 advantage, the ball was eventually recovered and run the other way for a 99 yard return. 

To say the least, this bizarre moment shifted the momentum drastically as Oregon stormed to a 51-27 victory.
