The South Dakota State Jackrabbits topped the Sacramento State Hornets 24-19 on Saturday night in the second round of the FCS college football playoffs. And the Jackrabbits sealed the victory with a very unique fourth-down play.

South Dakota State had 4th-and-1 at the Sacramento State 39-yard line with 1:24 remaining, when quarterback Chris Oladokun lined up behind center. It appeared that Oladokun was trying to draw Sacramento State offsides, and he then walked toward the Jackrabbits’ sideline looking animated as if he was unhappy about the set-up and wanted to call a timeout.

However, that was just Oladokun being tricky and showing off his acting chops. While he walked away from the play, the center snapped the ball to South Dakota State running back Isaiah Davis, who ran a few yards for a game-sealing first down.

Sure, the Sacramento State players didn’t seem all that fooled (the player that made the tackle did seem to be looking the other way when the ball was snapped, though), but you have to like the effort the Jackrabbits went to with their tricks on a game-deciding play in the postseason.

A quarterback sneak surely would’ve worked just fine too, but that doesn’t get you on SportsCenter!

South Dakota State will face Villanova in the quarterfinals.
