Navy ran a gutsy trick play on fourth down with the game tied in the final seconds of the Liberty Bowl. The Midshipmen faked a running play on fourth-and-three with the back throwing to a wide-open receiver for 41 yards to set up the game-winning field goal. If the play had failed, Kansas State would have been in a good position to possibly win the game. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.
Navy won the Liberty Bowl with one of the gutsiest trick plays you will ever see. The Midshipmen faced a fourth-and-three near midfield with the game tied and less than thirty seconds to play. Instead of punting the ball, Navy went for a first down, risking the possibility of giving the ball to Kansas State with a chance to win the game themselves. CJ Williams took the pitch, but instead of running for the first down — Navy had attempted only seven passes in the game — he found Chance Warren wide open down the field.
After a spike, Navy kicked the short field goal for the win. Wow.
