Watch USC fool UCLA on fake punt return for 72-yard TD

  USC scored a 72-yard touchdown on a fake punt return against UCLA.

UCLA punter Stefan Flintoft booted a 48-yard punt in the first quarter of the Victory Bell game against USC that switched fields, sending the ball from their own 24-yard line to the Trojans' 28-yard line. USC should have taken over on its own half of the field but the Trojans pulled off a brilliant fake punt return that allowed Michael Pittman Jr. to run 72 yards for a touchdown.

It was Pittman's first return touchdown and just the second touchdown of his career. He went untouched to the end zone down the sideline as he only had to run past two UCLA players who were near him in punt coverage.
