Utah Scores Touchdown on Nifty Fake FG
Utah fell to Arizona, 34–24, on Saturday. But the Utes went down fighting. And with style.
Trailing 3–0 in the first quarter, Utah sent out kicker Coleman Petersen for what appeared to be an attempt at a game-tying field goal. But upon receiving the snap, holder Sean Sellwood flipped the ball through his legs to Petersen, who was running right. Petersen made it into the end zone standing up to give the Utes a 7–3 lead.
Props to Utah for a very aesthetically pleasing wrinkle on a similar fake field goal that LSU pulled off against South Carolina in 2007. And props to Utes radio play-by-play man Bill Riley for recognizing the possibility of a fake right off the bat.
