During the game between Cincinnati and East Carolina, the Bearcats were running away with the game when they decided to call a fake punt. The game was already basically over at that point (42-10 Cincinnati) and they ended up converting on it.

Cincinnati eventually won the game 55-17 but not before Bearcats coach Luke Fickell and Pirates coach Mike Houston had a lengthy chat on the field after the game:

When Houston was asked after the game what the chat was about, he declined to say:

As for Luke Fickell, he issued an apology to Houston for the fake punt:

Other coaches wouldn’t have done a fake punt in that situation but if someone is that mad about it, don’t get blown out during the game.

Cincinnati’s next game will be against UCF next Saturday while East Carolina gets Temple.
