Ohio State's Jaxon Smith-Njigba completes ridiculous toe-tap catch for first career TD
This catch was just unfair!
Ohio State has likely locked up the season-opening win over Nebraska, and it was an insane catch by freshman Jaxon Smith-Njigba that provided the latest touchdown. It was only a five-yard catch, but the yardage does not tell the full story of this play.
After running his initial route, Smith-Njigba kept running along the back of the end zone as Justin Fields kept the play alive. Eventually, Fields threw a high pass toward the back of the end zone where only Smith-Njigba could make a play on it.
The play was initially ruled an incompletion as it appeared Smith-Njigba came down with a foot out of bounds. Fortunately, the play was reviewed.
After review, it was clear he was able to get his one foot inside the end zone and toe-tap for the touchdown.

With Smith-Njigba added to an arsenal that already includes Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson, it is no surprise that Ohio State’s offense has the potential to do incredible things this season.
