10. The Fifth Down
One of the most famous blunders in college football history is known as the Fifth Down game. It happened in 1990 during a play between the Colorado Buffaloes and the Missouri Tigers. Losing 31-27, the Buffaloes came back to take the win 33- 31 after ending up with a fifth down. The Tigers should have taken possession of the ball, however, the referee mistakenly thought the Buffaloes had one down remaining due to an unturned down marker. and they in-turn scored a touchdown.
