On Thursday night, the Jacksonville Jaguars faced off against the Tennessee Titans in a match-up of division rivals.

For football fans, it was less-than-deal appetizer for the weekend of football to come. Thankfully, Tulane and Houston were also on the field in college football's Week 4 opener.

The Green Wave and Cougars provided one of the most-exciting games of the season.

Tied 31-31 late in the fourth quarter, Tulane set up in victory formation at midfield. It looked like the Green Wave was ready to send the game to overtime until they rolled out an incredible trick play.

Tulane faked the kneel down and raced for a first down.

Check it out.

Tulane didn't wait long to capitalize on the incredible trick play. The Green Wave connected on a long touchdown pass for a walk-off win over the Cougars.

Tulane moved to 3-1 with the win while Houston fell to 1-3 on the year.

It's a disappointing start to Dana Holgorsen's career with the Cougars. In his first season as the team's head coach, Houston's only win came over Prairie View last weekend.
