We take a look back at the top ten plays of the season, starting with number 10.

With ten days until we get to see the Frogs kick off for the first time in 2016, it's only fitting that we count down the top ten plays/moments of the 2015 season. Let's start it off at number 10.

10) Kavontae Turpin's Punt Return Against Kansas

In a game that was hard to watch overall, this was one of the lone moments that shined bright. We all knew Turpin was bound to find the end zone on special teams at least once this season. Turpin had proved himself time and time again this season as a do-it-all kind of guy. It was in this game, the same one where we saw Boykin go down in the first quarter, then seeing offense sputter a little bit under Bram Kohlhausen, and finally Foster Sawyer complete only one of his passes to save the day, but it was Kavontae who would not let the Frogs go silently into the night (early afternoon).

Turpin fielded the ball at about the 50 yard line, and ran to the right side of the field. He cut back and then put on a low key spin move to get out of a tackle, and once his blockers set up his path to the end zone, he took it in for six.

P.S. This was the second straight year where we needed a punt return to take the lead against Kansas.
