Pinstripe Bowl December 26th 2015 – New York
Unfortunately for the Blue Devils, rarely did the trickery pay off against Indiana, no matter how well executed a play seemed.

When Monday came on the field with just less than 3:30 remaining in the second quarter facing a fourth and two at the Hoosier 47-yard line, all signs pointed to the All-American punter booting the ball away with the score 10-7 in favor of the Blue Devils. But Monday took the snap, feigned a rugby style punt to his right and turned back to his left where a wide-open Braxton Deaver was waiting beyond the first down marker.

The ball spiraled through the air, but floated just long enough for Indiana cornerback Ben Bach to collapse coverage on Deaver and prevent the catch.

*As reported by the Duke Chronicle / Trickery doesn’t quite work for Blue Devils, but explosive plays get the job done.
