Near INT turns into crazy catch for Nebraska's Brandon Reilly

Sometimes a quarterback makes the perfect pass in the tightest of windows to give his team a big play through the air.

In the case of Nebraska’s Tommy Armstrong Jr., he instead benefitted on a couple of lucky bounces en route to completing a 45-yard gain to Brandon Reilly in the first quarter against Indiana Saturday.

Armstrong delivered an underthrown ball down the right sideline that looked destined for an interception – or at least a pass breakup. However, the ball instead deflected off the Hoosier defensive back’s hands and was then kicked right into the arms of Reilly, who was lying flat on his back just outside the red zone.

The big play set up an eventual four-yard touchdown run by Terrell Newby for the first touchdown of the game.
