Everyone loves Western Michigan, and not just because they have P.J Fleck and they Row the Boat. They’ve been a fun team all year and have hung tough with Wisconsin in the Cotton Bowl.
Since the Broncos have nothing to lose in this game, they decided to run a crazy trick play to catch the Badgers off guard. It probably looked a lot cooler in the playbook than it did in practice.
It’s a triple reverse with a throwback to the player that got the initial reverse! They wanted it to get back to Corey Davis down the field, but Wisconsin has a really good defense so the play was fairly well snuffed out for only six yards.
Even for fancy plays that don’t end up going for very much at all, Western Michigan rows the dang boat so well.
