The Ohio State Buckeyes have pulled to within one point of the Alabama Crimson Tide going into halftime in the 2015 Allstate Sugar Bowl, thanks to a trick play.

With less than 20 seconds remaining in the first half, Buckeyes receiver Jalin Marshall took the handoff and pitched the ball to fellow wideout Evan Spencer, who then threw a beautiful pass to Michael Thomas in the end zone. Thomas did a great job of catching the ball and getting a foot down in bounds.

Take a closer look at Thomas' catch:

With that score, Alabama's lead was cut to 21-20. The 13-yard touchdown capped off a 77-yard drive that took just 80 seconds.
