Player fakes his own death on College football trick play

Spoiler: It doesn’t work.

THIS MIGHT JUST be the most ridiculous thing we’ve ever seen on an American football field which is saying something.

At a stretch, we can understand what Arkansas State were trying to do. Two scores down in the second quarter you want to make a big play your team can rally around but why this play?

For a start, the pass from the punter wasn’t within 20 yards of a receiver and, most importantly, why have a guy fake his own death, fooling nobody.

Arkansas State got what they deserved in the end, losing 40-21.
