With Alabama face fourth-and-1 on the Florida 35-yard line, Alabama quarterback Mac Jones acted like he was going to take the snap in the shotgun.
Jones then looked to the Alabama sideline.
In the meantime, Alabama tight end Miller Forristall lined up under center, took the snap and dove for a first down.
