Gophers WR Chris Autman-Bell makes ridiculous TD grab to increase Minnesota lead
Chris Autman-Bell is being credited with one of the nicest catches of the B1G season.
Early in the 3rd quarter of Friday’s night’s game against Maryland, the Minnesota receiver made a ridiculous catch between a pair of Terrapin defenders, resulting in a touchdown. The score gave the Gophers a 35-21 lead.
Tanner Morgan put the ball in just the right spot, and Autman-Bell hauled in the reception. It was the third catch of the night for Autman-Bell, who had 100 yards after the catch.

That touchdown pass came a little more than 3 minutes into the 3rd quarter. It officially went down as a 39-yard strike for the Golden Gophers.
Morgan had completed 6-of-8 pass attempts for 152 yards and a touchdown after that throw.
Both Maryland and Minnesota are 0-1.
