Penn State almost burned Maryland with this sweet double-pass, and then the receiver dropped the ball

Penn State's offense, in one GIF.

Saturday's Penn State Maryland has seen its share of mistakes. Both teams have committed ghastly turnovers, and there have been enough missed field goals and blown assignments to tide each team over for weeks.

But this unfortunate drop by Penn State running back Akeel Lynch might take the cake:

Penn State had called for a fun double-pass play. Quarterback Christian Hackenberg threw a backward pass to receiver Geno Lewis, who had running back Akeel Lynch streak free down the right side of the field.

It would've been a 30-plus-yard completion on a really fun play for Penn State's offense. It was not.
