I'm confused, why is it große Augen and not großen Augen? Isn't Augen plural?

Yes, "Augen" is plural:

die großen Augen (nominative, plural) --> Die Eule hat große Augen. (accusative, no article --> strong inflection) - vs. - Siehst du die großen Augen? (accusative, with article --> weak inflection)

"Großen Augen" is used for other meanings
