Play of the Day: RB Flood/Scissors

Today’s Play of the Day was from 2019 LSU against Bama.

More and more teams are running this RB Flood/Scissors look which uses the RB from the backfield on the Corner/Out.

#1 WR Runs a post, #2/TE runs a flat, and the RB runs a corner or deep out. Such an effective concept because it just isn’t used that often and it is tough to pick up #3 vertical and outside from the backfield.

Post clears the CB and Safety, Force defender goes with the flat, wide open RB out of the backfield. LSU runs a levels concept backside in this example.
