In Case You Missed It, Here Are The Top Plays From AAC Week 12

The #1 play is also the one that wrecked the AAC's one outside playoff shot.

#5: 

"Come on, Hayden Moore. Just throw a quick strike to get the first down."

DEATRICK NICHOLS: LMAOOOOOOOO NOPE WATCH ME DRIVE A STAKE THROUGH THE HEART OF YOUR VERY HOPES AND DREAMS MY GOD WE'RE UP 34-0 YOU'RE GOING TO KICK A SAD FIELD GOAL AFTER THIS AREN'T YOU

(They did.)

#4: NAVY

THREW

A

TOUCHDOWN

PASS

And Jamir Tillman burned the ever-loving daylights out of Tulsa's Jordan Mitchell too. Getting punked by a Navy receiver (no matter how talented) is like getting posterized by Muggsy Bogues. You're never coming back from that.

#3: Romond Deloatch is a 6'4" wide receiver who jumps like he's 6'7". He basically pulled a basketball move on his discombobulated Memphis counterpart, who had his back turned to the ball and just kind of put a hand up as his last line of defense. That arm just sort of disappeared as Deloatch ate up that ball just like the AAC is slowly consuming itself.

#2: I stood up, took off my (nonexistent) hat, put my hand over my heart, found the nearest US flag, and welled up with pride as a single tear rolled down my cheek. ECU's Isaiah Jones defies all logic, laws of physics, and playcalling common sense by laying out for an absolutely absurd catch on an end zone fade. God bless America, that was nuts.

#1: This play was a smorgasboard of "what the absolute hell is this?" First off, UCONN QB Tim Boyle throws a duck of a screen that had to have been thrown higher than it looked on film, as it damn well looked like it should've been a pick six.

Then, backup QB Garrett Anderson bombed it over a Houston defense that looked like it had never seen a flea flicker before to a wide open Noel Thomas, who brought it in despite the ball hanging in the air for approximately a century. Oh, and this was the clinching touchdown. That wrecked Houston's undefeated season.

HOT #AACTION Y'ALL.
