Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley is one of the brightest offensive minds in all of football. He's widely considered the most innovative play-caller.

On Saturday, he unveiled a new trick play which is going viral on social media. The flea flicker is a popular, fairly common play in today's college football. Riley called a flea flicker against Kansas State, but this time it came with a new twist.

Upon the snap, Oklahoma QB Jalen Hurts threw a wide receiver screen out to the short side of the field. CeeDee Lamb runs the screen back to the inside before tossing the ball back to Hurts.

Hurts then tosses the ball downfield to a wide open Nick Basquine for a 68-yard gain.

Check out a video of the incredible play-call below.

Every time it seems that Riley and this Sooners offense has revealed all their tricks, they come up with something new. What a play-call.

How did the receiver get so wide-open down the field?

You'll notice as the initial WR screen to Lamb is being set up, Basquine attempts a fake block by diving to the ground. He stays on the ground for a few seconds before getting up and sprinting down field.

A whopping 68 yards later and the Sooners are in business.

Oklahoma is currently leading Kansas State 10-6 in the first quarter. You can catch the rest of the game on ABC.
