Devon Allen turns on the jets

Sep 6, 2014

Oregon receiver Devon Allen finished Saturday evening's matchup vs. Michigan State with three catches for 110 yards and two touchdowns. 

Both scores were game-changers.

The Ducks won 46-27, but were down 27-18 at halftime. It would have been worse were it not for Allen, whose blazing speed was key to this 70-yard scoring play early in the second quarter. Quarterback Marcus Mariota hit Allen streaking straight up the field; Allen proceeded to spin off a tackler en route to the score.

In the third quarter as the Ducks' offense began to break down the Spartans, Allen again sped his way past the MSU defense for an easy 24-yard score, also seen here. The play ignited a streak of 28  unanswered second-half points by coach Mark Helfrich's squad.

Allen's first score kept the hope alive, while the second acted as the proverbial flipping of the switch that helped Oregon to a win over a top-10 team.
