My favorite offensive play from last season was the perfectly called, perfectly executed screen pass in the Cap One Bowl that blew up the Nebraska defense to the tune of an 87-yard touchdown scamper by Chris Conley. But the play that starts at the 40-second mark of this clip wasn’t far behind:
If the play in the bowl game was all about execution, this was about improvisation. Murray bought himself enough time with his feet to find an open Tavarres King and launch a perfect throw. The list of college quarterbacks who could have pulled that off is a short one. And it was also one of the biggest momentum shifts of the season. Just a fabulous play.
