Source: Oregon WR Devon Allen expected to miss national title game

Devon Allen, the fastest man in college football and the player Oregon coaches have called their most consistent wideout, is expected to miss the national title game, a source told FOX Sports after the Rose Bowl Thursday night.

The NCAA 110-meter hurdles champ injured his right knee returning the opening kickoff in the Ducks’ 59-20 win over Florida State.

Allen, a 6-foot, 185-pound redshirt freshman, has caught 41 passes for 684 yards and seven TDs this season.

No. 2 Oregon will face No. 4 Ohio State on Jan. 12 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
