College football: UNC scores touchdown on wild trick play
No. 22 North Carolina found themselves tied with rival Virginia at a touchdown a piece with just over three minutes to go in the first half. Of course, the Heels' head coach Larry Fedora couldn't let the Cavaliers stay close for long; so, he dialed up an undefinable trick play.
That's right, UNC running back T.J. Logan lined up in the wildcat formation and took the snap. However, Logan did not run, or pass; he handed the ball off to the wideout Ryan Switzer. Switzer then tossed the ball back to quarterback Mitch Trubisky who had originally lined up as a reciever. And, finally, Trubisky launched a 40-yard pass to wide out Bug Howard for the score.
Even sweeter, Howard was wearing No. 13, which normally belongs to UNC wide reciever Mack Hollins, who suffered a season-ending broken collarbone last week against Miami.
Bug Howard wearing #13 today for Mack Hollins. This is what football is all about. More than a game, it's a brotherhood. pic.twitter.com/82mVgp1a70— Taylor Vippolis (@tvippolis) October 22, 2016
