Oregon all-everything back De'Anthony Thomas has been mentioned as a Heisman candidate and the above play shows you why. It's hard to find a player this dynamic in college football.
Let's just break this down for a second: Thomas lets the ball bounce and then picks it up with his back to his own end zone, which every punt returner knows not to do.. He breaks two tackles to get to the sideline and then he lets his blockers — and his speed — do the rest of the work.
This might be the play of the year in college football. if not, it's certainly right up there.
The best part is punter Darragh O'Neill getting absolutely laid out by an Oregon player. That pretty much encapsulates Colorado's season right there.
I think we all knew Oregon was going to throttle Colorado, but at 56-0 at the end of the first half, this is downright embarrassing for the Buffs.
