WATCH: BYU WR makes acrobatic TD grab, just staying inbounds

  Beau Tanner's first touchdown reception in a Cougars uniform is one that grabbed the nation's attention.

While Friday nights are usually reserved for high school football,  four FBS games were on display Friday night. And Brigham Young wide receiver Beau Tanner made a catch the college football world took notice of.

It wasn't a bad first touchdown reception in a BYU uniform, either.

Falling out of bounds, Tanner's body was nearly parallel to the ground when he caught a touchdown along the sideline in the endzone against Utah State. He barely landed his right foot inbounds to secure a second quarter touchdown that was later confirmed after official review. 

Watch his catch here:

Tanner had just three receptions on the season entering Friday night's game against Utah State. His touchdown gave the Cougars a 21-7 lead with 13:30 remaining in the quarter. The 6-foot junior receiver has appeared in all four of BYU's game this season after transferring from Scottsdale Community College prior to the 2016 season.
