OSU's Noah Brown makes absurd TD catch just before half

It's only Week 3, but it's hard to see how anyone could top the catch that Ohio State's Noah Brown hauled in late in the first half on Saturday.

The receiver, returning from a broken leg last year, had a first half against Oklahoma that consisted of three catches, all of which went for touchdowns.

The third, just before halftime arrived, was as incredible as you will ever see.

Brown made it 35-17 by reaching around his defender on an underthrown ball and pinning it with one hand on his back. It brought back shades of Stanford's Francis Owusu's similar grab against UCLA last season, but this one might have been even more remarkable.

A lack of weapons in the receiving game was a concern for the Buckeyes coming into the year, but if Brown can make plays like this, they should continue to be just fine.
