Ahead of the big game that will go down at the Cotton Bowl today between Michigan State and the University of Alabama, cheerleaders from the schools have been hanging out together. It sounds a tad unconventional, I know, but I haven’t even gotten to the odd part. Two cheerleaders from each team took a ride in the famous Goodyear blimp and played a massive game of cornhole from the sky. You know, as one does.

Unsurprisingly, the game set the Guiness World Record the biggest cornhole game. We’re thinking that record will hold up for a while. (What could possibly beat it? A game played from the international space station?)

The cheerleaders tossed huge beanbags from 200 feet in the air onto a 2,048 square foot cornhole board. Sadly, no one made it completely into the hole, but one beanbag came super duper close. Mascots from the two teams were on hand to show their support, although they maybe should have stayed home. After the cheerleaders de-blimped (is that even a word? It is now), the mascots gave giant cornhole a go from the ground. And um, it didn’t go so well. The Alabama mascot pretty much flattened the Michigan State cheerleaders. Oops. It might be kind of hard to cheer today after suffering a blow from an enormous beanbag. But we’re sure it was just an innocent mistake. Maybe. Probably.

Or not. Watch the crazy cornhole action go down in the video below and decide for yourself:
