Yahoo Sports’ Dan Wetzel and Ross Dellenger, and Sports Illustrated’s Pat Forde hop on the College Football Enquirer to discuss the most innovative play they saw from Week 2 of College Football. This week’s play comes from Kansas State’s battle with Missouri. This innovative play breakdown is brought to you in partnership with Invesco QQQ.
DAN WETZEL: It's time to move on to our most innovative plays of the weekend, courtesy of Invesco QQQ. Pat, which team was leading the way this Saturday?
PAT FORDE: That'd be Kansas State, which still found a way to lose on a 61-yard field goal. We touched on that earlier. But in terms of innovative play, down on the goal line trying to punch the ball in against Missouri, they went to the Tim Tebow playbook, the jump pass.
Will Howard, big quarterback, took the snap out of the shotgun. Took two, three steps toward the line of scrimmage and then pulled up and threw the jump pass over the top to tight end Ben Sinnott, who was wide open behind the Missouri defense. Very clever play that if you've got a quarterback with a running threat, you can pull off, and they executed it perfectly.
And then Ben Sinnott took it to the next level by celebrating it with a pantomime shotgun-beer celebration after scoring the touchdown. So that was your Invesco Innovative Play of the Week.
DAN WETZEL: That is really the-- it hit all the topics, right. Good play call, great design, takes a little courage to make that play. Tremendous execution slipping the block, faking the run. And then also an innovative touchdown celebration.
PAT FORDE: Yeah, hadn't seen that one before.
DAN WETZEL: There you have it. That's our Innovative Play of the Weekend. Thanks again to Invesco QQQ.
