WATCH: Minnesota DB Antonio Shenault makes leaping INT, leads to Gophers TD
When you have time, a lot can be accomplished.
When a defensive back has time to make an interception by potentially baiting a pass and getting to make a play on the ball with nobody around, highlights are made.
Minnesota is hosting Miami (OH) on Saturday and the Gophers are doing well on both sides of the ball. Defensive back Antonio Shenault proved why the defense has been getting it done with an interception:

Shenault essentially went to one receiver, waited for the pass to be thrown to what looked like the open guy and made a play on the ball at its highest point. The return was pretty sweet too, as he zig-zagged his way down to the Miami (OH) 12-yard-line.
That set up a throwing score for the Gophers, giving the team a 26-3 lead.
