The Memphis Tigers upset the No. 25-ranked UCLA Bruins on Saturday afternoon, a marquee home victory for the program. But before all that, they tried to get creative and put the game on ice with a fake field goal to push their lead out to two scores, and, well, it didn’t end how they planned.

If nothing else, give the Tigers credit to getting to the part where they actually got to the kicker to throw the ball.
