Right at the end of the first half, Purdue was set up for a 30-yard field goal that would have given them a seven-point lead over Ohio State.

Head coach Jeff Brohm wasn’t having it.

He sent his field-goal unit out onto the field, but instead of going for three he called for a fake that worked to perfection.

His offense rewarded him with a touchdown right afterward, which gave the Boilermakers a 14-3 lead heading into the half.

Twitter went nuts over this ballsy call.
