Ohio State did so much scoring against Rutgers on Saturday, even the Scarlet Knights cheerleaders were celebrating. It wasn't on purpose, though.

A Rutgers cheerleader mistakenly did some clapping following a J.K. Dobbins touchdown during Saturday's blowout.

The cheerleader was seen clapping following the touchdown, before realizing the mistake.

Pretty funny:

Oops. The Rutgers cheerleader took to Twitter to explain what happened: "Hi yea that was me. They were both red so I was a little confused until I saw the rutgers student section not cheering. Oops," he wrote.

Hey, it's tough to blame him. I'd cheer for Ohio State over Rutgers this season, too.
