In the second quarter of Arkansas State's 23-20 victory over Ball State in the GoDaddy Bowl, the Red Wolves ran a strange trick play. 

The ESPN announcer called it the "Hide the Midget" play, where 5'9" wide receiver R.J. Fleming crouched behind the offensive line. Fleming then took the handoff to the left, while the rest of the play went right. 

He got outside for a 27-yard gain that helped set up a game-tying touchdown. 

Thanks to ESPN for the video.
