As we speak, the Tennessee Volunteers are in the midst of destroying the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers. Already up by 21 points and just in the second quarter, it’s likely if you’re not a Vols fan, you’ve already turned off the game. And if you’re a Hilltoppers fan, you’re probably already running into traffic.

But some of the best plays tend to happen in blowout games, much like the catch from freshman wide receiver Marquez North who had a little assistance from his legs.

North had broke free and was all alone (seriously, there must not have been a Hilltoppers defender within fifteen or twenty yards at the time of the pass) just waiting for the ball, en route to an easy touchdown. However, the ball was vastly underthrown and North had to change direction, causing him to lose his footing.

No worries though as the freshman changed angles, did a few tip drills while laying nearly flat on his back, then kicked the ball back to himself before a Hilltopper finally emerged into your picture (and hit a force field, bouncing over North as he went for the tackle).
