Offensive linemen rarely have the opportunity to touch the ball in an actual game, but it is becoming a minor spring game tradition to reward the big fellas with some touches on trick plays. Alabama did it last week, and today, Michigan State center Jack Allen scored the first touchdown of the Green-White game. 

Allen scored on a fullback trap play, while defensive lineman Lawrence Thomas served as a decoy at halfback.

Incredibly, the White squad set up Allen's touchdown on a toss-back screen pass from quarterback Connor Cook to 317-pound right tackle Donavon Clark.
