The best trick play you’ll see in Week 9 comes courtesy of the New Hampshire Wildcats, from their Colonial Athletic Association matchup with Stony Brook.
UNH built an early, 13-0 lead on a Prince Smith pick-six. With the Seawolves coming in boasting one of the best defenses in the Championship Subdivision, and New Hampshire seeking a marquee win for its Playoffs resume, head coach Sean McDonnell opted to call for a two-point conversion and extend the lead further.
The formation New Hampshire used is unlike anything you are likely to see anywhere in college football.
We've seen this before from @UNH_Football.

Small wonder this is the program where Chip Kelly got his start. This trick play looks like something Kelly would have run in his time at Oregon — though even UNH’s look deviates from the unique sets Kelly often employed with the Ducks.
If three receivers lined up to the right is dubbed “trips right,” is a sextuplet sent out wide a “sex right?” Perhaps a question for McDonnell on Monday’s CAA teleconference call.
That formation is odd enough on its own, but the sweep pitch to receiver Neil O’Connor, who delivers the scoring pass through a narrow window, only adds to the incredible aesthetic of this trick play.
