Most of the time when you are facing a 1st-and-25, you will see a coach call a safe play to try and get a few yards. Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn took a different route.

Auburn stashed wideout Ryan Davis behind the offensive line, completely unaware to the Texas A&M defense. However, Jesse Palmer on the SEC Network broadcast immediately outed the play. What he points out doesn’t matter though, as Auburn successfully converted a first-down against a clueless A&M defense after quarterback Jeremy Johnson made the blind handoff to Davis.

Auburn went on to score the upset on the Aggies, winning 26-10 in College Station.
