Georgia Tech Fake Punt May Be the Worst Attempt Ever

The element of surprise can help a team win a game. When it doesn't work, however, it can turn into an ugly play.

Late in the second quarter of the Music City Bowl on Monday, Georgia Tech tried to trick Ole Miss with a fake punt. It wasn't a terrible call on 4th-and-11 given that it came on the Rebels' side of the field. However, the execution was as bad as it gets.

Punter Sean Poole got tripped up by the turf monster before he even got to the line of scrimmage, and Ole Miss took over on downs.

The Yellow Jackets were fortunate that the Rebels missed a field goal on the ensuing drive, keeping their deficit to 13-7.
