Tyler Johnson

During the second quarter of Minnesota’s Week 6 game against Illinois, receiver Tyler Johnson made one of the best catches we’ve seen all year.

Tipping the ball to himself down near the goal line, Johnson secured it in the end zone in between three different Illinois defenders for the touchdown.

That’s certainly a catch of the year candidate. And it gave Minnesota an early 10-7 lead over the Illini.
