That's because the last time they ran it Smith faked the toss, the defense came up and Bailey was all alone to catch an 87-yard touchdown pass.
"You would think that with what I've been able to do I'd be covered on that play,'' Bailey said. "But I guess when he faked that flip to Tavon they all went for it.''
The last touchdown, though, was even more impressive. Smith had to scramble when he couldn't find anyone open. Bailey was downfield locked in double coverage. But as the play went on, even Bailey gave up. He slowed down and so did the two defenders with him.
But then Smith saw Bailey down field and Bailey saw Smith still scrambling. It only took a second for Bailey to speed up and run away from the two defenders and into the clear, catching a 39-yard touchdown pass.
"I actually gave up on the play,'' Bailey admitted. "The next thing I know, here comes the ball. That's what he does. He sees everything.''
Despite all the yards and completions and touchdowns, the biggest pass of the game might have been one of the last. And it was perhaps Smith's worst throw of the game.
But J.D. Woods grabbed it with a spectacular one-handed snatch that gave West Virginia a first down with less than two minutes to play and was instrumental in the Mountaineers being able to run out the clock.
"That was a terrible throw,'' Smith said. "That could have turned the game around. The DB could have caught that and run it back for a touchdown. But he made a great catch.''
Woods finished the day with 13 catches for 114 yards, but it was that one he'll remember most.
"That was probably one of my best, yeah,'' he said.
