In a rivalry game that should feature a lot of highlight moments, Michigan State Spartans running back Connor Hayward started things off with an unbelievable one-handed catch.
Early in the first quarter as the Spartans attempted to move down the field, Hayward made the incredible play. Despite having a Michigan Wolverines defender draped over his back, Hayward made an extended, one-handed catch that electrified the home crowd.
That Connor Heyward Catch was so ridiculous. https://t.co/k8eWBFZMVi

The still photo of the catch is even more amazing, demonstrating the full extension and catch with the defender on his back.
