North Texas fools Arkansas with incredible fake fair catch on punt return

North Texas fools Arkansas with incredible fake fair catch on punt return

There's nothing quite like a Saturday in the fall.

North Texas pulled off one of the cooler plays you will see on a football field on Saturday against Arkansas.


We all get in front of our TVs to see if we can catch a insane play, or if there might be a power conference school that goes down to a big underdog. Brewer may have caught the ball nonchalantly, but he never signaled for a fair catch. After standing still for several seconds following a Razorback's punt, return man Keegan Brewer sprinted past a pair of unassuming defenders, breaking free for a 90-yard touchdown.

If the refs missed the fair catch, they cost Arkansas 7 points. Either he did not wave his arm and I'm seeing wrong (quite possible), or he did wave his arm and meant to call for a fair catch, which the referees missed, allowing a play to continue when it should not have (also possible).
