Northwestern runs a trick play to cut the score against Cal.

Northwestern’s offense hasn’t exactly spent its Saturday afternoon lighting up Cal, but it did have this gem of a trick play to get itself back in the game.

After an interception by senior linebacker Colin Ellis put the Wildcats on the 17-yard line, quarterback Trevor Siemian threw a screen pass to Jayme Taylor who threw it back to Simien. Simien, not known for his running ability or athleticism, somehow made a defensive back bite on his one and only move and then stretched out for the touchdown.

There’s no doubt that said DB will be hearing about that play all season.

The entertaining and painfully slow-developing play cut Cal’s lead to 31-21 late in the third quarter.
