Early in Super Bowl LIV, the Kansas City Chiefs faced a fourth-and-1 situation on the San Francisco 49ers' 5-yard line. The Chiefs decided to go for it and called a running play that involved four players spinning before the snap.
It turns out the play - which saw running back Damien Williams take a direct snap and pick up the first down - was gleaned from a college football game more than 70 years ago.
"That play comes from – if I'm not mistaken – a 1949 Rose Bowl," Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy said, according to James Palmer of NFL Network. "I probably shouldn't be giving this away. The Rose Bowl Michigan versus USC (the 1948 Rose Bowl). And so, it's just a play that we've been working and wondering when we can polish it off.
