Throw Northwestern wide receiver Mike McHugh's name into the hat for Big Ten catch of the year.
McHugh made an incredible one-handed sideline grab Saturday at Iowa that was right up there with Jordan Westerkamp's behind-the-back catch, Randy Edsall's leaping sideline grab and Tony Lippett's Willie Mays-esque highlight, among others.
The most impressive part of the catch: McHugh, running toward the right sideline, readjusted in midair and used his right hand to haul it in. That's not easy. It had a little – again, a little – Charles Woodson to it.
The catch was first ruled incomplete, but it was reviewed and, appropriately, overturned.
As great as the grab was, Iowa rolled past Northwestern, 48-7.
