Auburn dispatched of the Arkansas Razorbacks, 35-17, in week 10 of the 2013 college football season. The Tigers did not do so without controversy, though.
Linebacker Anthony Swain appears to fake an injury with the Hogs closing in on the goal line.
The Tigers have shot up the national polls after first-year coach Gus Malzahn instituted his wide open offensive scheme in The Plains. One might expect players to try to fake an injury against them, to slow them down – not the other way around. Not against an Arkansas team that runs a much more conservative offense.
Malzahn, however, said there was no acting involved:
“No,” Malzahn responded when asked about the fall. “We don’t tell our kids to fake.”
Take a peek at the clip of Swain going down. Do you think he was faking?
