MMQB: What Is Your All-Time Favorite Trick Play?

New, 37 comments

In the spirit of Halloween, we ask what are some of the best trick plays you’ve seen Penn State (or some other team) pull?

NCAA Football: Penn State at Purdue Sandra Dukes-USA TODAY Sports

You may have been too busy admiring the copious amount of points Penn State’s offense was putting up on Purdue to remember that at one point during the game, the Boilermakers attempted a trick play that completely backfired, as seen in the video below:

Given that today is Halloween, we feel it’s appropriate that we touch on the subject of trick plays. What is your favorite trick play in Penn State football history? Perhaps it’s Joe Nastasi’s fake field goal touchdown run to seal a victory against Michigan in the famed Snow Bowl? Or maybe it’s Christian Hackenberg’s touchdown catch against Illinois last year on a pass from Nick Scott on what appeared to be a routine toss play to the right side (ironically enough, that game took place on Halloween)?

If you’re having trouble thinking of Penn State-specific moments, feel free to name something you saw from another team (i.e. Boise State’s hook-and-ladder/statue of liberty plays from the 2007 Fiesta Bowl).
