Penn State wide receiver DeAndre Thompkins logged an early entry for catch of the season by a Nittany Lions player early in the fourth quarter Saturday against Pitt.
Thompkins hauled in a one-handed grab after running down the left sideline on a pass from quarterback Trace McSorley for 39 yards. He had Pitt’s top cornerback, Avonte Maddox draped all over him, but still reached out with left hand/arm and corralled the ball.
Holy one handed catch by DeAndre Thompkins ??? https://t.co/lqcJP8aGwb

The big play set up Saquon Barkley’s fourth touchdown of the day and helped Penn State get back to within one score, 35-28, against Pitt after previously being in danger of being blown out.
