Stanford’s Francis Owusu Catches Ball Around Defender’s Back For “Play Of The Year” Candidate (Video + GIF)

Francis Owusu catch

Stanford is thrashing UCLA at the moment and there’s nothing the Bruins can do about it.  That’s pretty much been the case throughout the entire first half of tonight’s Pac-12 match-up, and it continued into the third quarter, when Stanford receiver Francis Owusu reached around a defender’s back to pull in a 42-yard pass from Kevin Hogan, giving his team a 42-17 lead.

Sure, this game is a blowout, but it was still one of the most amazing catches you’ll ever see. Have a look:

No matter what the score ends up being, that catch is the only thing that everyone will be talking about on Friday.
