SALT LAKE CITY – Former Utah Utes and current Birmingham Stallions cornerback Brian Allen returned an interception for a touchdown in week two of the USFL season.

Allen and Stallions played the Houston Gamblers on Saturday, April 23.

With 14:13 remaining in the first quarter, Allen picked off Gamblers quarterback Clayton Thorson and returned the pigskin 48 yards to the house.

Allen’s pick-six gave Birmingham a 7-0 lead.

During the opening week of the USFL season, Allen had four tackles, one tackle for loss, and one pass defended in Birmingham’s 28-24 win over the New Jersey Generals on April 16.

Prior to playing professional football, Allen was a standout player for the University of Utah from 2012-16.

The La Marque, Texas native was selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft. From 2017-21, Allen played in the NFL for the Steelers, Seattle Seahawks, Buffalo Bills, San Francisco 49ers, Cincinnati Bengals, and Cleveland Browns.

Birmingham’s game against Houston is televised on FS1.
