Penn State’s Blocked Field Goal Is BTN’s Play Of The Season

It shouldn’t come as a surprise, but Marcus Allen’s field goal block and Grant Haley’s ensuing 60-yard return for the game-winning touchdown against Ohio State is the Big Ten Network’s top play of 2016. Enjoy it again, cause it never gets old.

Allen and Haley’s spectacular play will go down in college football history, as it made Penn State’s East title run possible. James Franklin got the signature win that many fans and media members had been clamoring for and did so in emphatic fashion.

Now, Penn State finds itself in the Big Ten Championship against No. 6 Wisconsin after winning eight-straight conference games, and hopes to join Ohio State – which appears to be a lock – in the College Football Playoff.

Although some discount the play as being just another special teams mishap, the fact of the matter is that Allen timed the jump perfectly, doing so legally, and Haley did the rest. They don’t practice special teams for nothing.
