North Texas punt returner Keegan Brewer used some trickery to deceive the Arkansas special teams on a 90-yard touchdown Saturday.

As Brewer positioned himself to catch the ball, he raised his hand slightly as if he were going to call for a fair catch, and he didn’t move until a handful of seconds after he reeled in the pigskin:

It seemed like a designed deception because at least one blocker on the field started jogging, like he were heading to the sideline, but then he cut upfield to help open a running lane for Brewer.

The Razorbacks, meanwhile, didn’t adhere to one of the basic rules of football: Play until you hear a whistle.
