Utah, already up 21 points over #3 Oregon, called a timeout to give punt returner Britain Covey a return opportunity before the first half expired; Covey responded with a 78-yard, touchdown-scoring return to put Utah up four scores at halftime.

That was a great call too
Wasn’t it Covey who returned the trick punt return play for a TD up in Eugene 4-5 years ago?
This always happens to me when I turn on a Duck game.
ABC’s: *Always. Be. Closing.*
I don’t follow college football. Is there a reason that wasn’t punted out of bounds? I’m pretty sure I’d rather put my defense on the field to stop one play than risk a breakdown in punt coverage.
been saying it all year, offense is flat for UofO, defense is streaky. They got jobbed against Stanford, but this isn’t surprising at all.
that said, get rid of rankings, make a 40 team A League and do a regular NFL-style record-based playoff of 8-12 teams and most the rankings whining goes away.
Oregon looked like they’d lose big once they played someone decent. It’s happening.
highly effective people on that return unit
Was he not Out of bounds at 0:47?
edit: guess not
Having 92 first-cousins is more impressive than that return.
This was when I knew the game was over.
He is one fast cat. Nice run. And nice upset.
The fuckin UTAH UTES BABBBYY
10 seconds left. Utah calls a timeout bc it has one of the best punt returners in college football. Oregon thinks, “hmmm, I could either punt this ball safely out of bounds or just kick it nice and high to ensure a fair catch. OR, I could kick it straight to him and have every player in coverage chase the ball like an over excited golden retriever while I watch my playoff spot get handed to an AAC team……
That boy is gonna be soaking tonight. 😉
Why did Whitt get so emotional? Get it together, man.
Oh fuck I could watch the ducks get blown out all fuckin’ day
Stephen Covey was very effective at having children. 9 children who in turn had 55 children, Or over 6 grandchildren/child??
I played against Covey in high school and even our coach knew better than to kick it to him.
That non block was actually the key to that play.. great awareness by that player
I’m not a football coach, but if the team I’m playing takes a time out JUST so one guy can have a go at it, I’m not going to kick to him
We’ve been undefeated since Aaron Lowe’s shooting death. I truly think his moms talk with the team turned these guys around and it’s so cool seeing the team respond in this way. 22% better every day. Go Utes
Since when does Oregon get outdone by the alternate jerseys of their opponents? No wonder they got blown out.
CFB noob here: it’s not really explained why they needed to call timeout to give him a chance to return it? Can the defense sub him in without the timeout? Would they not have punted it without the timeout ?
