Amway Coach’s Call of the Week: Cast your vote

Coaches make dozens of decisions in every game. Most of them aren’t that noticeable. Some of them very much are.

Some calls can change a game. Some are just thrilling to watch. Sometimes it’s not one call but an entire game plan. Sometimes — because college football is supposed to be fun — it’s about trickeration.

Each week this season, USA TODAY Sports will select four calls from across the nation that we think rank among the best for the Amway Coach’s Call of the Week.

We let you, the fans, decide which call from the four below had the most impact or was the most exciting.

Voting closes at 4 p.m. ET on Monday.

Steve Addazio, Boston College


The Eagles are soaring. They are on 5-4 on the season, 3-3 in the ACC, and they have won three conference games in a row.

That includes a 35-3 thrashing of Florida State on Friday night.

The defense was stifling — shout out to the defensive game plan — holding the Seminoles to 213 yards. And Boston College showed some sparkle on offense, too, including the first touchdown.

On second-and-5 from the Florida State 34, QB Anthony Brown handed off to Jon Hillman, who flipped it to receiver Jeff Smith on a reverse. Smith then launched it to the back of the end zone to Kobay White, who got a foot down for touchdown.

It made the score 7-0, and the Eagles never looked back.

Mike Norvell, Memphis

The Tigers, like the Eagles, moved ahead thanks to a reverse.

On second-and-3 from their own 42 on Friday against Tulane, QB Riley Ferguson handed to RB Patrick Taylor Jr. headed left, and Taylor pitched to Tony Pollard who was streaking across the backfield to the right.

Fifty-two yards later, Memphis 7, Tulane 0. The Tigers went on to win 56-26, running their record to 7-1 (4-1 AAC) and in position to win the West Division.
