Surely you've seen the catch by Southern Utah's Cameron Morgan on Saturday against Cal. It's a weekly affair for pundits, labeling one catch the best of the year, until the following week when someone like Morgan comes along to shake up the imaginary catch-of-the-year standings.
But Morgan's touchdown grab on a Hail Mary from Brad Sorensen at halftime pulled the FCS Thunderbirds within 10 going into halftime of an eventual 50-31 loss. Sorensen evaded the pass rush after taking the snap at the 37 and chucked it to the right corner of the end zone where Morgan, a 6-foot-3 junior from Uvalde, Texas, was stuck in double coverage. As Morgan rose, the ball went off his fingertips. He and the ball fell to the ground, and Morgan corralled it on the way down.
RantSports.com makes the case that the catch, which was reviewed and upheld, should have been ruled incomplete on the grounds that the ball may have been loose when Morgan landed out of bounds. Don't know about that one. It sure looks like a catch. And, either way, it was a heck of a play.
