RUNNING THE ISLAND — Football teams can take a lot of smart penalties, but mostly a lot of dumb penalties.
We had a few dumb penalties this weekend (read: UCLA) and a few reasons that some officials might not like, but we want to see more of them in college football (read: Hawaii).
And then some things happen in an NFL stadium that shouldn't, but you can't really flag a team for them — like hosting a wedding ceremony (more on that in a moment, Bills fans).
Let's start in the islands.
As always, click the video above for more Great Clips of the Week.
Hawaii ain't takin' no knee against no 'Pack
Hawaii entered Saturday's game at Nevada with a historically awful record of 1-8 in games played in Reno.
And with both teams off to a 3-1 start to the season, it seemed like the 'Bows' woes in Northern Nevada were set to continue, right?
Hawaii scored at will, dominating for its second-ever win in Reno, 54-3. The Rainbow Warriors were scoring at will, with Cole McDonald slinging the ball around for 312 yards and four touchdowns and Hawaii up 28-3 at halftime.
With scoring coming at such ease, maybe the 'Bows would've held off the gas when they got the ball back in the final minute of halftime, content to take a 25-point lead into the locker room.
Again, think again, as McDonald's victory formation actually turned into a big run with a little misdirection for the team that put up 512 yards of offense.
It's almost like Hawaii literally couldn't help themselves. And we, like, can't even with this one.
Happy Bills-iversary, dear
Football fans know the struggle: you're young, in love and eager to get hitched to your most requited and move on to the next phase of your life. But it's fall, and that means football, and a wedding would just take too much time away from the team you love.
Mackenzie Park and Jordan Binggeli know the struggle. So the two Buffalo Bills fans decided to combine the two moments: a wedding and Sunday's game against the New England Patriots.
Thirteen-year Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams (who recently retired) officiated in the ceremony; Bills legend Jim Kelly gave away the bride; and, hopefully, everyone lives happily ever after.
Except for the Bills, who lost 16-10 to the Patriots to fall to 3-1 on the season.
Silverwolves' golden moment
Friday was homecoming at Riverton High School, and all Carson Lloyd wanted was to dress for the annual homecoming football game.
The coaching staff did one better for the Silverwolves' three-year manager. The senior with special needs didn’t just dress; he got off the bench, went into the game, took a handoff and sprinted to the house for a touchdown.
