The Ducks had gotten themselves into quite the pickle. On 2nd and 10, Tony Brooks-James was hit in the backfield for a loss of six yards. To make things worse, Oregon committed two penalties on the play, a false start and a personal foul on the same play. That backed Oregon up to their own 39, making it 3rd and 36.
That was no issue for Dakota Prukop though, thanks to having an Olympian to throw to. Prukop chucked up a perfectly placed pass, and Allen was able to make an incredibly athletic play to fight off the defender on him to haul in the pass.

Oregon would cap off the drive with a touchdown, going 99 yards over the course of 10 plays in just 4:28. It is drives like that that prove time of possession is one of, if not the most useless stat in all of sports.
