DALLAS, Tex.–The Cotton Bowl was a rough one for Baylor kicker, Chris Callahan.
He missed a field goal, another one got blocked, and his team blew a 20-point 4th quarter lead. But that wasn’t all. Callahan was on the receiving end of arguably one of the worst hits in college history.
The blow upon the 5’9″ 185 lb. kicker was delivered by Michigan State’s Tony Lippett after a blocked field goal attempt on Thursday.
The hit left Callahan seemingly unconscious.

But Callahan recovered from the hit with a sense of humor with this tweet.
My mom said I would never get hit…#SicEmBears

And no amount of force could break Callahan’s morale.
I am alive. It has been a great season. I am proud to be a Baylor Bear. #SicEm
