1authorrob3 - Stanford WR Francis Owusu Makes Catch Of The YearThere are simply no words to describe this catch from the world of College Football on Thursday night.

While all of New York had eyes firmly planted on their New York Mets, disposing of the Los Angeles in Game 5 of the NLDS, Stanford wide receiver Francis Owusu dropped jaws nation-wide.

In Stanford’s 42-17 route of the UCLA Bruins, Owusu hauled in this 41-yard score from quarterback Ben Hogan (video above). Just check out the catch, and then sit back and star in amazement.

The kid caught it on the back of the defender. In fact, the coverage here was spot on (aside from the idea he didn’t turn around to find the ball, warranting a defensive pass interference call).

Simply amazing.
