Watch: Behind-the-back, one-hand ... two spectacular catches in the Big Ten
By Brett Edgerton
On Saturday afternoon, the Big Ten delivered perhaps the two best catches of the early season. First, Nebraska wide receiver Jordan Westerkamp reached behind his back to grab a pass from Tommy Armstrong Jr. during the Huskers' 55-7 win against Florida Atlantic.
Nebraska players and coaches were abuzz after the game. "That was the greatest catch I've ever seen in my life," defensive coordinator John Papuchis said.
Then in Iowa, receiver Tevaun Smith made an amazing one-handed catch for a 6-yard touchdown in the third quarter of the Hawkeyes' 31-23 win against Northern Iowa.
