UMass’ Blake Lucas Received The Saddest, Funniest Hug After Blowing The Game

It’s hard to call what UMass almost did against Vanderbilt an “upset.” Sure, Vanderbilt belongs to the SEC, but they’re the conference’s cellar-dwellers by a mile this season. However, the Minutemen would’ve loved to have nailed the above field goal to send the game to overtime for a shot at the win.

Alas, it wasn’t to be. UMass kicker Blake Lucas shanked his attempt. He then received simultaneously the saddest and funniest hug a kicker has ever gotten from an opponent on a game-losing field goal. Vanderbilt’s Adam Butler just seems to full-on “come in for the real thing, guy” Lucas, and we hope that took a little bit of the sting out of the miss.

Poor Blake, poor UMass.
