The days until college football returns are counting down! Today there are only 79 days left. To celebrate, we honor Michigan wide receiver and return specialist Donovan Peoples-Jones. His jersey number might not be #79, but he might have something even better. Peoples-Jones has not 1 but 2 plays that were 79-yard touchdowns.
The first was back in 2017 when Peoples Jones was a just a freshman. DPJ was able to outrun the entire Air Force punt unit and take it to the house.
The next one was probably a little more memorable for the Maize and Blue. A 79-yard TD reception against arch-rival Michigan State. Although it was his only catch of the evening, DPJ made it count.
Michigan went on to beat Michigan State 21-7 and this reception was a big reason why. Players like DPJ are the reason we count down to college football. He brings electricity to the field and exciting plays can happen at any moment. Stay tuned for more exciting plays like these two!
