Social media reacts to Troy Franklin’s incredible 50-yard catch

·1 min read

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.
