Video: South Carolina gets first down on early fake punt

Ladies and gentlemen, college football is back. And luckily for all of us, Steve Spurrier is already unveiling his tricks.

Early in the first quarter between the South Carolina Gamecocks and North Carolina Tar Heels, Spurrier dialed up a fake punt despite being deep in his own territory. The fake worked to perfection, as everyone on UNC turned their backs to get back in return formation and punter Sean Kelly scampered for the first down untouched.

Check out the beautifully drawn up play below.

Unfortunately for the Gamecocks, they were unable to capitalize on the conversion and were later forced to punt.

Regardless of the outcome of the series, football is back, we’re already faking punts and we could not be happier.
