Penn State-UCF Football: Knights Skydiver Misses Croke Park Stadium (VIDEO)
Maybe the landing spots of the respective Penn State and UCF pregame skydivers at the Croke Park Classic were a sign of things to come.
Before the Nittany Lions and Knights kicked off in Dublin, Ireland, Saturday morning, two skydivers — one representing each school — were meant to descend into the stadium and deliver game balls. As you can see, the Penn State skydiver stuck the landing.
But the UCF skydiver landed outside the stadium entirely and on nearby train tracks, albeit safely.
Welcome to our unexpected visitor the #CrokeParkClassic parachutist who landed on the railway line behind Hill 16! Line clear now, no delays

Penn State defeated UCF, 26-24, on Sam Ficken’s last-second field goal. Not saying the skydivers were oracles. Not saying they weren’t.
