"Allen was a starting outside linebacker for Penn State's unbeaten Orange Bowl champions and earned first-team All-East honors. His senior statistics included two pass interceptions for 30 yards.
He alternated as a regular at defensive tackle for the Nittany Lions in 1970. Doug missed the entire 1971 season with a head injury and made the switch to outside linebacker in 1972; listed on the second unit, he played as much as the starter. He was a college teammate of Bills linebacker John Skorupan.
Doug graduated with a degree in labor studies and his college academic average was 3.37 (on a scale of 4.0). He worked during the off-season for the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO."
