On Saturday night during the SEC Championship Game in Atlanta, the Georgia Bulldogs ran one of the worst fake punts you’ll ever see, setting up the Alabama Crimson Tide in good field position for what ended up being the game-winning drive.
On Sunday, in the same stadium and less than 24 hours later, the Baltimore Ravens decided to show Georgia fans how fake punts are supposed to work.
As you can see below, punter Sam Koch completes a pass for a first down against the Atlanta Falcons, selling the fake beautifully:

Of course, when your punter is a legend like Koch, you can afford to be bold. Koch, in fact, has never thrown an incomplete pass:

The Ravens are tied with the Falcons 10-10 in the third quarter, so there’s still a chance that the Falcons can give Georgia fans a boost this weekend with a win.
