Florida Atlantic TE catches TD after intentionally falling down (Video)

Sam Cooper

Florida Atlantic cut into Miami’s lead late in the first quarter Friday night, and did so with a rather unique play.

On a third-and-goal play from the Miami 4-yard line, FAU quarterback Jason Driskel rolled right and then threw back across the field to a wide open Nate Terry for a touchdown.

That’s right, Terry basically played dead and fell to the ground. The Miami defense completely neglected him, so he simply got up and waited for an easy touchdown toss from Driskel.

The touchdown cut Miami’s lead to 14-10 late in the first quarter. It was the first career touchdown for Driskel, a redshirt freshman who came on in relief of injured senior Jacquez Johnson.

Driskel, the younger brother of former Florida and current Louisiana Tech quarterback Jeff Driskel, looked comfortable on his first career drive for the Owls, completing 3-of-4 passes for 34 yards.

Miami responded with a long field goal after Terry’s touchdown catch to extend its lead to 17-10 in the second quarter.
