Houston wide receiver Linell Bonner has staked his claim to the 2016 catch of the year title with a ridiculous snag on the sideline in the second quarter of the Cougars’ opener against Oklahoma.

After a terrific individual effort by quarterback Greg Ward Jr. to elude the Sooners’ pass rush, Bonner was able to somehow stretch out to grab a ball that was half-throwaway, half-passe, all while keeping one foot planted on the ground.

The catch helped set up a field goal for the Cougars to end the first half and put them up 19-17 on the Sooners in NRG Stadium in Houston.
