There hasn’t been much to cheer about for Rainbow Warriors fans over the past few years, but Hawai’i beat MTSU in last night’s Hawai’i Bowl thanks in part to a wild third-quarter fake punt that was as much a victory for long snapping as it was playcalling.
Clemson punter Andy Teasdall connected with Christian Wilkins for 31 yards and a first down as Dabo Swinney used some trickery to get the Tigers inside Oklahoma’s 15-yard line. Two plays later, Deshaun Watson found the end zone to put Clemson up 10-7 in today’s first college football playoff semifinal. Here’s how it…
Washington State’s still holding onto a narrow lead over 24th-ranked Cal today, but this thoroughly ruined fake punt put the Bears back in the game. We don’t blame the Cougars for trying the fake—4th and 1 at midfield is prime time to go for it, really—but punters are not running backs.
We’ll never hide our appreciation for CBS stalwart announcer Verne Lundquist, and he was at his best during this wild play during today’s Georgia-Vanderbilt game when Commodores punter Tommy Openshaw mishandled the snap and managed to rumble for a first down. “WHAT THE HECK!?”

Kent crushed Ohio 44-13 in Athens tonight, but the highlight for all who tuned in for #MACtion was this 61-yard fake punt by Nate Terhune, a 6'4" 265 lb. defensive lineman who played up-back on the punt team and made the most of his opportunity—hurdling a Bobcat return teamer en route to the end zone.
