Football games are made up of many individual plays that combine to create the story of the game, and most plays cannot stand up by themselves without context from the game in question. In this series, we will shine a light on some of these individual plays that can give us a deeper understanding of what is going on in the 2020 college football season.

Each week, we will put five plays under the microscope to find richer meaning in our quest to understand this incredibly complicated sport.
