WATCH: New Mexico State's Jaleel Scott snags wild one-handed TD

Between the first FCS-over-FBS victory, an extended nail-biter with the No. 2 team in the country, and a triple-overtime marathon, college football’s opening night had a little bit of everything.

It also might’ve had the best catch of the year… already?

Early in the second quarter of Thursday night’s game between Arizona State and New Mexico State, the Aggies had the ball deep in Arizona State territory when New Mexico State quarterback Tyler Rogers looked towards the end zone and had an idea.

He launched a pass to 6-foot-6 Jaleel Scott, who, while fighting through tight defense, extended and snared the kind of catch you have to see to believe:

That's unreal stuff from Scott for New Mexico State’s first touchdown of the season.

After a relatively quiet freshman season in 2016 (23 catches, 283 yards, five touchdowns) Scott just might be someone to keep an eye on this year.
