There might not be a faster player in the realm of college football than University of Oregon running back De’Anthony Thomas and he got to show off that game-breaking speed yesterday against the University of Colorado.

The Ducks were already up 35-0 in the second quarter, when the Buffaloes decided to punt from their own twenty-four yard line and let the player known as the “Little Black Mamba” return it.

After the punt took an interesting bounce, Thomas recovered it and used his burst to take the return to the other side of the field where he ran past six different Colorado defenders:

Oregon cruised to another “Tecmo Bowl”-style victory with a 70-14 win against their Pac-12 counterparts.
