After nearly dropping a wide-open touchdown earlier, USC Trojans wide receiver Nelson Agholor came back with this amazing catch. I still can’t believe that he got control of the ball and a foot down to complete this catch. This is a simply stunning one-handed catch and a play that will be one of the best from bowl season.

USC Trojans wide receiver Nelson Agholor showed off the jets as he burned past everyone on the Fresno State defense. Cody Kessler threw a perfect pass right to Agholor and Agholor was so excited that he almost dropped the pass.
