WATCH: Utah embarrasses Oregon with incredible fake on punt return TD
Before the game, Oregon head coach Mark Helfrich said Utah’s special-teams play was worth the price of admission. It showed on Saturday at Autzen Stadium.
Earlier in the game, Utah’s punter grabbed a high snap with one hand then rushed it for 39 yards. That was impressive.
But somehow, it wasn’t the most impressive special teams moment of Utah’s 62-20 dismantling of Oregon. In a moment that felt like it was out of a movie, Utah pulled off a miraculous fake on a punt return, resulting in Boobie Hobbs taking the football 69 yards for a touchdown.
The Utes used a misdirection trick to dupe the entire Oregon defensive special teams unit. Watch it unfold in the video above.
Wow. Utah special teams pulled the fake punt return look in the sky at no ball someone else catches it play. LOL UO fell for it.
