Golden Gophers WR Tyler Johnson uses one hand to haul in Minnesota's third first-half TD against Penn State
Minnesota is putting on quite a show in the first half against Penn State. With about two minutes remaining in the second quarter, the Golden Gophers have 321 yards. They are averaging an astonishing 20 yards per pass.
To average that many yards per pass, a team obviously has to get a lot of big plays. One of those big plays came from wide receiver Tyler Johnson.
While streaking down the sideline with pretty great coverage from the Penn State defense, Johnson hauled in a beautiful one-handed catch and broke a tackle to reach the end zone. The catch was brilliant, but the pass was also perfect.
