It’s bowl season, so why not get a little crazy?
Western Kentucky faced Memphis in the Boca Raton Bowl on Tuesday. Near the end of the first half, everything seemed innocent enough. The Hilltoppers looked prepared to take a knee to enter halftime with a 28-17 lead.
But Western Kentucky was far from finished.
Check out the amazing fake kneel down and 53-yard run by Hilltoppers running back Anthony Wales to Memphis’ 32-yard line. Kudos to the person working the camera for trying to keep track of all the wild action.
Western Kentucky is running fake kneel downs in the Boca Raton Bowl of all places. https://t.co/JZEjiAj3Qo

Unfortunately for Western Kentucky, the trick didn’t result in a treat. Memphis defensive back Dontrell Nelson intercepted quarterback Mike White on the next play.
Still, it might be hard to find a better trick play this bowl season.
