The Memphis Tigers fell into an early hole Saturday against Penn State but are clawing back, thanks in part to a “Philly Special” type trick-play touchdown you have to see.

Quarterback Brady White was the beneficiary of some slick play calling here.

Just perfect execution on a brilliantly timed call to get the Tigers back in this game.

This score pulled them to within just five points of the Nittany Lions, who opened up Saturday’s Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic with a ton of momentum, going up two touchdowns in the second quarter.
