This is probably not at all how they drew it up. But it still got the job done.
With Minnesota trailing 6-3 in the third quarter of a very low-scoring Holiday Bowl on Tuesday night, Gophers QB Mitch Leidner (for some unknown reason) very gently tossed this pass into a host of Washington State defenders … and one of them bats it directly to Minnesota WR Shannon Brooks for the go-ahead touchdown.
Plays like this are why Mitch Leidner is a top-10 pick, amiright? pic.twitter.com/8X0TVf0chf
