Ohio State sophomore punter Jesse Mirco made a good play late in the game against Rutgers, but head coach Ryan Day wasn’t a fan of it. While he made a big play, it is one that is going to get him in trouble, especially after starting a huge fight.

Mirco started the punt to look like he was going to rugby punt it but instead ran for the first down for a fake. He ran out of bounds where an angry defender of Rutgers hit him late.

Day asked Mirco if a coach told him to run the fake punt. Mirco responded by saying he called it himself. Mirco ran the fake pump with 9:33 remaining in the game up 49-10.

Ohio State would win the game 49-10 at home with a dominating performance on both sides of the ball. Ohio State outgained Rutgers in total yards accounted for 413 to 187.
