Rutgers tight end Jerome Washington made one of the most impressive — and peculiar — catches of the college football season on Saturday against Nebraska.
Washington caught a ball with his legs and backside in the first quarter against the Cornhuskers. Washington had the ball go through his hands, but he kept it from falling to the turf with his legs before securing the ball with his butt. It was good for an 11-yard gain on a touchdown drive for Rutgers.
