Just before halftime on Saturday as Iowa hosted Maryland, Hawkeyes receiver Brandon Smith pulled off a stunning one-handed touchdown to extend his team’s lead.
Smith was being mugged by a defender, who was flagged by two different officials for trying to interfere with Smith. The word “trying” here is important, because nothing said defender did was enough.
Check out this one-handed touchdown, which Smith made while being pulled down by his left arm.
Can't decide which was more impressive…the dime from Nate Stanley or the one-handed grab from Brandon Smith. 🤷♂️

Just a stunning display of concentration — he would not be denied.
This touchdown, and the impending extra-point, gave Iowa a 13-0 halftime lead.
