Earlier today, the USC Trojans completed their season turnaround with a demolition of Fresno State in the Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl. The offensive fireworks were on display for Cody Kessler and Co., but the most exciting part of the game had nothing to do with either actual team. No, there was a gingerbread man sighting on the field, courtesy of Zappos, the online shoe and clothing shop. Apparently the #ZapposGingerbreadMan, who had taken pictures with fans all day and all week, was a bowl-approved “streaker”:

It seems that the Las Vegas Bowl knew that this was coming in advance, but that didn’t stop the gingerbread man from getting tackled. I guess it’s no surprise that something weird happened in Vegas.
