Josh Allen’s Top 5 Plays at Wyoming [VIDEOS]
After last Friday's victory over Central Michigan in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl, Wyoming junior QB Josh Allen declared for the NFL Draft.
Here's a look back at five of his most memorable plays while wearing a brown and gold uniform:
Allen scrambles to his right early in the fourth quarter and finds Tanner Gentry to get Wyoming back in the 2016 Mountain West Championship game in Laramie. The Pokes eventually lost 27-24, but what a throw while going out of bounds!
Another scramble and another connection with Tanner Gentry. This tied the game at 28-28 in the fourth quarter against Boise State. Wyoming would go on to win this game on the Chase Appleby strip sack and safety. Josiah Hall then became famous for the "Safety Dance." This is another throw on the money in the back of the end zone.
This time scrambling left, Allen puts one where only Gentry can catch it. Unbelievable arm strength, accuracy and what a catch! This made it 35-7 with 54 seconds left in the first half. Wyoming went on to win the game 52-28.
Who can forget the triple overtime thriller that ended at 2:34 in the morning, Mountain Time! Allen looking for someone to pass to, finally decides I'll run it in. Cowboys win, 40-34 in 3 OT's!
This play came right before the end of the first half in Wyoming's first road game of 2016 at Nebraska. As the announcers point out, it was critical that the Cowboys scored to stay in the game, especially after missing out on some previous short third down conversions. Wyoming played well for three quarters before the Huskers pulled away and won in a blowout. This was the first of many big and key hook-ups with Gentry throughout that season.
Allen closed out his Wyoming career in high style, as the Cowboys rolled past Central Michigan 37-14 in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl last Friday, Dec. 22 in Boise, ID. Allen threw for three TD's. He was inserted on the last series for one play and came out to a standing ovation from Cowboy fans in attendance. Later on, he decided he would be part of the "Gatorade bath" dousing head coach Craig Bohl on the Wyoming sideline. Coach Bohl went after him in a bit of a funny sidebar.
