Needing something to go their way after falling behind 14-0 to Clemson in the ACC Championship Game, Virginia Tech found that play on an unconventional fake punt. Hokies head coach Justin Fuente dialed up a smooth fake punt that was so unbelievable, officials initially threw a flag on the play.

Punter Mitchell Ludwig threw a floating jump shot to a dragging Terrell Edmunds, who bobbled the ball before pulling in the catch and gaining the first down. After a replay review the call on the field was overturned and the Hokies were awarded the first down.

The conversion kept the Hokies’ drive going and eventually Travon McMillian punched the football in the end zone for a one-yard touchdown. Virginia Tech cut the deficit to 14-7 and changed the complexion of the game, preventing the contest from getting away from them early.
