The Pac-12 finally made its debut in Week 10 of the 2020 college football season and wasted no time making its presence known, earning a spot in this week's top five plays in its first game.
Remarkable touchdown passes, tackle-breaking scampers and a huge defensive return are featured on this list. And, in what is becoming a staple of this list, a 100-yard kickoff return touchdown made it as well. Also, more fun Rutgers stuff!
The top-five plays from Week 10:
Cornelius Johnson, Michigan, WR: Down 7-0, the Wolverines answered the Hoosiers with a diving catch from Johnson. QB Joe Milton found his wideout in one-on-one coverage and looked as if he nearly overthrew the 6-foot-3 sophomore, but Johnson was able to haul in the ball with a leaping grab for the touchdown. Johnson finished with 82 receiving yards and the score, though the Wolverines lost 38-21 to Indiana.

Rachaad White, Arizona State, RB: Arizona State was down 14-10 with five minutes to go in the second quarter to No. 20 USC when White turned a simple screen into a 55-yard touchdown. White finished the game with 76 rushing yards and 70 reception yards in the 28-27 loss.

Jason Taylor II, Oklahoma State, DB: Leading 13-12, Taylor returned a fumble from Kansas State QB Will Howard 85 yards for a score with 6:32 to go. The No. 12 Cowboys hung on to win 20-18.

Bo Melton, Rutgers, WR: Wild laterals seem to be Rutgers' thing these days, and the Scarlet Knights pulled off another one in their game against Ohio State. On a punt return, Melton received a lateral that traveled nearly 3/4th of the way across the field before he weaved his way into the end zone.
MORE LATERALS!! @RFootball loves a trick play touchdown 🙌♞ pic.twitter.com/rv51bSupCZ
Zonovan Knight, North Carolina State, RB: Knight's 100-yard kickoff return touchdown to take the lead in the third quarter over No. 10 Miami had NC State thinking upset. Unfortunately for Knight and the Wolfpack, they scored just three more points and lost 44-41.
NC STATE PUTTING MIAMI ON UPSET ALERT🚨
Javonte Williams, North Carolina, RB: Williams continued his incredible season with a three-touchdown performance against Duke. One of those scores was a 33-yard touchdown run that even three defenders couldn't stop. UNC won 56-24.
Javonte Williams, most elusive RB in college football, had FOUR 1st half TDs☠️
Parker Washington, Penn State, WR: Even pass interference couldn't stop Washington on this 23-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter. The touchdown and ensuing extra point, though, made the score 35-13 Maryland and the Nittany Lions went on to lose 35-19 Washington finished with eight catches for 70 yards and two touchdowns.
