Miami wide receiver Romello Brinson may have made the catch of the year in the Hurricanes’ romping of Central Connecticut State on Saturday.
With the Hurricanes already up 49-0, quarterback Jake Garcia went going for more. Brinson was covered completely in the end zone of Central Connecticut State’s defensive back, but he somehow fell with the ball for a touchdown.

It was Brinson’s first touchdown of his collegiate career, and has to be under consideration for best catch of the season with Oklahoma cornerback D.J. Graham’s catch last week . The catch shocked the college football community.
Miami secured a 69-0 victory over the Blue Devils after getting embarrassed at home by Michigan State last week. D’Eriq King was also out for the Hurricanes, as he suffered a shoulder injury. Manny Diaz,
Miami’s coach, showcased his youthful talent. Garcia finished 11-for-14 with 147 passing yards and two touchdown passes. Tyler Van Dyke was 10-for-11 with 270 passing yards and three touchdowns.
Cam’Ron Harris rushed for 100 yards and two touchdowns on 10 carries. Cody Brown also had two touchdowns to go along with 77 yards on the ground.
Miami is now 2-2 with a Thursday night matchup against Virginia.
