X’s & O’s: Zone Read Y Pop

This Zone Read Y Pop comes from the 2019 Big 12 Championship Game. Early in the 3rd quarter of that game, Oklahoma ran this Pop Pass out of a Diamond set. This play is great for any zone-read team as a complement for any Zone Read Arc or Slice, whether it’s single or double. It’s simple because nothing changes for anyone except the quarterback and Y receiver. The Y just bluffs and slips the defender he would normally block.
