Big pressure was on a pair of skydivers this weekend to kick off the Penn State opener against the UCF Knights all the way over in Dublin, Ireland. Each team had a skydiver deliver a game ball to the 50-yard line, but unfortunately one of them misjudged the descent and missed the stadium entirely. Yes, it happened to be the Central Florida skydiver … shocker.

And the Knights also lost 26-24.

But the big winner on the day is Instagram member Cian257, who was able to capture the wonderfully hysterical moment to spread around the internet.

“Awwwwwwwwwww….. cackle, cackle, cackle.’’ Just perfect.
