Georgia tight end Brock Bowers hauled in an improbable catch Saturday.
During the first half of the Georgia-Florida game in Jacksonville, Bulldogs quarterback Stetson Bennett underthrew a pass to Bowers. Florida linebacker Amari Burney was covering Bowers and deflected the ball.
That’s when the magic happened.
The ball bounced off Burney’s helmet and somehow landed in Bower’s arms. The sophomore tight end was able to grab possession of the ball and scampered to the end zone.
Bowers was credited with a 73-yard touchdown that increased Georgia’s lead to 21-0 in the first half.
Bowers athleticism was on full display during the play as he was able to maintain focus after the ball bounced in the air.
