Iowa Hawkeyes tight end Shaun Beyer made an insane one-handed snag against Nebraska. Could this be the catch of the year in college football?
The Iowa football program is known for producing great tight ends, so it should come as no surprise to see what Shaun Beyer was able to pull off on Saturday afternoon against the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
On Iowa’s first drive of the game, quarterback Spencer Petras dropped back to pass from under center and fired a laser just over the head of a wide-open Beyer, who ran right past Nebraska’s secondary up the seam.
Beyer made an incredible adjustment in mid-air to haul in a one-handed catch for a huge gainer. It was definitely the best catch of Beyer’s career, and could even be the best catch we’ve seen this season in all of college football.
Beyer made his best Odell Beckham Jr. impression, but the spectacular catch didn’t help much as the drive ended in just three points. The Hawkeyes are up early 3-0 on the Huskers in the first quarter of action.
Iowa is looking to make it six straight against Nebraska. The Hawkeyes lead the all-time series for the Heroes Trophy (6-3). A win would bring No. 24 Iowa to a record of 4-2 on the season.
