Video: Minnesota TE Maxx Williams makes highlight-reel catch

Another week, another nominee for Big Ten catch of the year.

Last week, it was Northwestern’s Mike McHugh putting his name into the discussion with a crazy catch at Iowa. This week, also against Iowa, it was Minnesota tight end Maxx Williams.

Williams, somehow, managed to get a foot down AND hold onto the ball on a pass overthrown to him near the Iowa sideline.

Incredible.

This is right up there with McHugh’s,  Jordan Westerkamp’s behind-the-back catch, Randy Edsall’s leaping sideline grab and Tony Lippett’s Willie Mays-esque highlight, among others.

The catch was first ruled incomplete, but it was reviewed and, appropriately, overturned.
