In one of the biggest moments of the game, a Minnesota receiver pulled through.
Saturday night, the Golden Gophers found themselves in a dog fight with Fresno State. Minnesota was down 28-21 with less than one minute to play and facing a 4th-and-long situation. Basically, the Gophers had one play left in the bag.
And it worked.
Tanner Morgan fired a perfect pass down the sideline of the end zone and Chris Autman-Bell made the catch of his life, getting one foot down inbounds for the touchdown. After the extra point sailed through the uprights, Minnesota and Fresno State continued the contest into overtime.
Talk about a big-time play. This will go down as one of the best catches of the season. Both Morgan and Autman-Bell will remember it for quite some time, too.
Both videos can be seen below:
