THE COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAY OF THE YEAR HAPPENED LAST NIGHT
At Stanford UCLA game.
- •Here is a clip of it: https://twitter.com/deadspin/status/654881452711124992Best clip I could find that should be easy to view on your iPhone.
- •Stanford lined up in the Wildcat
- •Christian McCaffery, Stanford's insanely good running back and son of former NFL wide receiver Ed McCaffery, took the snap
- •QB Kevin Hogan was lined up at the WR position
- •Hogan ran behind the line of scrimmage laterally towards the middle of the field and took a pitch from McCaffery
- •Hogan threw a bomb down the center of the field to Francis Owusu, little brother of Stanford great Chris Owusu
- •The UCLA defender Jaleel Wadood was not looking at the ball and tackled Owusu before it arrived
- •But Owusu blindly reached his arms around the defender and somehow caught the ball while bear hugging Wadood.
- •Stanford was already winning by a lot so it wasn't really important but it was definitely really amazing.
- •It reminded people a lot of a similar catch made by Tyrone Prothro from Alabama in 2006. https://twitter.com/sportscenter/status/654899943686164481
