ATLANTA — It happens all the time - you'll here a referee penalize a player for unsportsmanlike conduct during a game.
But what about a mascot? Yes, this really did happen over the Labor Day weekend.
On Sunday, Jackson State University took on Bethune-Cookman University in Atlanta at the Georgia State Stadium for the MEAC/SWAC Challenge.
According to HuffPost, the Jackson State Tigers scored a touchdown, and their mascot came onto the field - there was flag on the play.
"Unsportsmanlike conduct, Jackson State mascot," you can hear the referee say in a video tweeted by ESPN.
You can see the mascot in the mix - on the field- right after they scored.
And of course, the jokes started flowing on Twitter.
In the end, that move cost the team 15 yards, according to Sports Illustrated.
