Boise State vs Fresno State Video: Watch Broncos Convert Fake Punt Inside Own 20

Maxwell Ogden@MaxwellOgdenCorrespondent IIISeptember 21, 2013

Chip Kelly may have revolutionized the up-tempo offense at the University of Oregon, but Boise State head coach Chris Petersen has mastered the art of the trick play. From the Statue of Liberty to the countless other unpredictable formations that Petersen has up his sleeve, the Broncos always have something new.

Against the Fresno State Bulldogs, Boise State took it to another level by converting a fake punt attempt from their own 19-yard line.

Is there anything Petersen is afraid of attempting on the football field?

Senior punter Trevor Harman took the snap and launched a gorgeous pass to sophomore safety Dillon Lukehart. Lukehart proceeded to fly past the first-down marker and get the ball all the way down to their 49-yard line after a 30-yard gain.

Petersen is college football's resident mad scientist.

Boise State failed to cap the drive off with a score, but the trickery didn't end with the fake punt. In fact, the Broncos later faked going for it on fourth down, instead pooch kicking it out of a normal formation.

Confused? Welcome to a Boise State football game.

Later in the game, the Broncos converted a two-point conversion on another trick play, as shown here in a Vine from College Football Talk's Kevin McGuire:

This has become a tradition at Boise State, where the confusing play has become the norm. While it may be high-risk to attempt these kinds of plays, the Broncos have managed to be one of the most consistent teams in the nation, despite all the trickery.

The fact that Petersen has the guts to attempt plays like this is a major reason why.
