No matter what happens from here on out, Michigan wide receiver Roy Roundtree will be remembered for his catch in Saturday's game vs. Northwestern. The 53-yard tip reception was jaw-dropping regardless of the game situation, but it was all the more ridiculous because it set up Michigan's game-tying field goal with two seconds left at Michigan Stadium. The Wolverines, of course, went on to win the game in overtime.
Saturday was Roundtree's day. The senior wide receiver hauled in five passes for 139 yards, none nearly as important or impressive as the season-saving one.
The catch was so good, it got the attention of former 1991 Michigan Heisman winner Desmond Howard:
