Georgia’s Brock Bowers scores an unlikely 73-yard touchdown after successfully juggling


Georgia tight end Brock Bowers had an unlikely catch on Saturday.

During the first half of the Georgia-Florida game in Jacksonville, Bulldogs quarterback Stetson Bennett underestimated a pass to Bowers. Florida linebacker Amari Burney covered Bowers and deflected the ball.

That’s when the magic happened.

The ball bounced off Burney’s helmet and somehow landed in Bower’s arms. The second-year tight end was able to grab possession of the ball and raced towards the end zone.

Bowers was credited with a 73-yard touchdown that extended Georgia’s lead to 21-0 in the first half.

Bowers’ athleticism was in the spotlight during the game as he was able to stay focused after the ball bounced through the air.
