Yllage Vidiot Humbly Awesome
Where does everyone rank the Tyler Allgeier punch-out in BYU’s all time top plays? I place it 5th.
The most recent BYU Top 100 plays (YouTube link below) was done after the 2020 season. I think there are several candidates in the 2021 season to be included in the top 100, including the Allgeier run v Virginia and 4th down stop v Utah (a short but good list for 2021 was recently summarized here):

I think the Allgeier pursuit and punch-out v ASU was the top play of the 2021 season (duh) and is a candidate for top 10 or maybe even top 5 all time. I know when the rankings were released 18 months ago by BYUtv they followed criteria other than “top athletic play” such as overall significance to the season / BYU history, etc, which is why the game winner v Michigan in the 1984 Holiday Bowl was included as #6. So beating ASU was a big deal in the context of BYU’s hot start in 2021, and Allgeier’s play was a big factor in BYU’s momentum and actually winning the game, but all in all it was just an awesome play.

Here are BYUtv’s top 17 of their 100 plays (I went to 17 to include the Taysom hurdle because I was present for that one!) as shown in the 2020 video here:
