Big Ten's Play of the Year Goes to Penn State

Big Ten Network announced its Top 5 B1G Plays of 2016, and to use BTN's own words: "You know what it is, Big Ten football fans. Right?"

The answer, of course, was the Marcus Allen blocked field goal/Grant Haley 60-yard touchdown return to beat Ohio State.

Why this play deserves the title of Play of the Year needs no explanation. Even if you've watched it 50 times already, it doesn't get old: The underdogs, still behind with just minutes left in the game, pull off an impossible play and get the impossible win. (It even sets the pace for a season that results in an impossible championship berth.) 

In football, it really doesn't get any better than this.
