This is the Oregon offense we’ve all been waiting for.
Duck head coach Dan Lanning said he wanted more explosion plays and wide receiver Troy Franklin, with a little help from quarterback Bo Nix, delivered.
Franklin ran a common post route, but the catch was anything but common. He used his entire 6-foot-4 frame to leap up and come down with a 50-yard reception on the 2-yard line that set up the Ducks’ second touchdown of the day to give Oregon a 17-7 lead over BYU in the second quarter.
The Ducks scored a play later on Nix’s second 2-yard scoring run.
Bo ➡ Troy

The collective reaction of the fanbase
Might be a long day for the BYU defenders
Troy Franklin absolutely flipped that DB’s life around. Future NFL draft pick. Finally getting unlocked.
