Video: This fake punt play is so good it fooled the defence and the TV crew
This is a beautiful way to score a TD.
A new season of college football means coaches are unveiling nine months worth of new play designs to amuse and excite us.
The best of the weekend just gone was this peach by Villanova against Boston College. At the end of their very first series of plays of the new season, they had failed to make it ten yards in three downs so Villanova set up to punt the ball back to BC.
But instead they pulled a superb fake punt move and scored a TD. The dummy run is so well executed it fools the camera crew as well as the BC defence, so it is only on the replay you get to see just how they did it.
A brilliant play call, but maybe Villanova should have saved such a slick move until they really needed. Like later in the game, which they lost 24-14.
