Watch: Memphis scores on double-reverse flea-flicker TD pass

Saturday September 19th, 2015

Memphis opened up its bag of tricks against Bowling Green on its way to a come-from-behind victory.

Trailing 41–34 early in the fourth quarter, the Tigers busted out a very rare variation of a very rare play: the flea flicker.

What looked like a sweep to the left was reversed the other direction and flipped back to quarterback Paxton Lynch, confusing the defense in the process. Lynch found receiver Tevin Jones with a head start to the end zone, and Memphis cashed in with a 48-yard bomb.

It went on to win it 44–41, with an A for creativity.
