Boise State and Boston College didn’t even make it through one quarter of today’s First Responder Bowl before the game was canceled due to lightning in the area.
The game was officially ruled a no-contest, so it is as if it never even happened. Tough luck for the players and coaches who traveled all the way to Dallas for the game.
At least one Boise State player wanted to make sure he got his money’s worth. He took time out post-game to get his uniform dirty.
In the video below, the unnamed player uses his hands to make his jersey appear game-used.
The First Responder Bowl has been cancelled, but one Boise State player decided he had to get his jersey dirty anyway ?

Today’s game was the first bowl game ever canceled due to weather.
Fortunately, it looks like the ADs of both schools are in the process of working something out to compensate fans who made the trip.
Bowl considers ticket sales final. Boise State AD Curt Apsey said he wants to do something for fans who made the trip but no specifics yet.
