The relationship between a quarterback and his top wide receiver is an important one.
So, it’s good for Nebraska’s football program that quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr. and wide receiver Jordan Westerkamp are extremely close.
How close, you ask? Check out the following Instagram post from Armstrong to Westerkamp and then you’ll know.

Earlier this season Nebraska sophomore wide receiver Jordan Westerkamp was a real popular guy after making a couple of incredible receptions including an awesome (and lucky) behind the back catch. As the season went on and he quit pulling off the incredible (and became a normal wide receiver) the attention waned.But after making this awesome 65-yard catch and run he is bound to garner...

We've been blessed with some great catches this season.
Nebraska WR Jordan Westerkamp's behind-the-back grab comes to mind as one of the fall's finest.
If you missed out on that, watch it here.
But if we are willing to extend the Catch of the Year debate to recruits, as well, then what Terrell Chatman did recently demands a spot in the conversation.
Chatman is a 6-foot-3, 180-pound...
EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) The last time Nebraska played at Northwestern two years ago, so many Cornhuskers fans packed the stadium that the home team had to go to a silent count on offense.
Coach Bo Pelini wouldn't be shocked if a similar scenario unfolds again.
No. 19 Nebraska visits Northwestern in a game that matches two teams that played absolute thrillers the previous three years...

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Nebraska wide receiver Jordan Westerkamp burst onto the scene last year by catching the game-winning Hail Mary against Northwestern.
The sophomore enters Saturday's road game against the Wildcats with a team-leading 25 catches for 474 yards and three touchdowns.

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) In terms of entertainment value, nothing in the Big Ten has topped the Nebraska-Northwestern series since the Cornhuskers joined the conference in 2011.
All three games have been decided by a total of seven points, with the Huskers winning two. Another frantic finish just might be in store when No. 19 Nebraska takes on the Wildcats on Saturday night in Evanston...

Nebraska wide receivers keep hauling in insane catches. Earlier this season, Huskers WR Jordan Westerkamp caught a ball behind his back, which very well could be the best catch we’ve ever seen. A week later, Westerkamp had another insane catch, this time reeling in a ball with one hand despite being hounded by a defender.
On Saturday night against Illinois, Huskers WR Kenny Bell...
Prior to the start of the 2014 college football season no one outside of Lincoln, Nebraska (and maybe his home town) had ever heard of Cornhuskers sophomore wide receiver Jordan Westerkamp. After two weeks of the season he is on his way to becoming one of the most well-known receivers in the game.Yeah, a number of guys have produced more than him, but no one is making the incredible...
Jordan Westerkamp made another sick catch, this time against McNeese State in the Nebraska win.
Last week, Nebraska wide receiver Jordan Westerkamp made headlines after he hauled in one of the best catches that we’ve ever seen. This week, Westerkamp’s at it again, as he made a crazy catch during Nebraska’s game against McNeese State. While it wasn’t nearly as nice as his behind-the-back effort from a week ago, this week’s one-handed grab while he’s being blanketed...

Jordan Westerkamp made one of the greatest catches we’ve ever seen during Nebraska’s season opener against Florida Atlantic Saturday. The Huskers’ wide receiver, who caught the Hail Mary pass against Northwestern last season, made a behind-the-back snag during the third quarter of his team’s 55-7 victory.
The sophomore wideout has inspired Husker fans to emulate the play...
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Somehow, some way, the football seems to land in the hands of Jordan Westerkamp.

For the Nebraska Cornhuskers the bulk of the attention has been going to sophomore wide receiver Jordan Westerkamp and deservedly so. His behind-the-back catch on the sidelinee is going to be hard to top for catch of the year, but that wasn't all he did. The youngster ended the day with seven catches for 125 yards and a touchdown (second career TD and 100+ yard game).Thanks to his...
College football is back.
And that means it’s time for some new ridiculous hits, runs, and catches from crazily talented college football players.
One of the potential best catches of the year—if not THE catch of the year—occurred Saturday afternoon in Lincoln, Nebraska.

When it comes time to compile the odd, circus-like grabs of 2014, it's going to be hard to rival Jordan Westerkamp's on Saturday.
The Nebraska sophomore wide receiver was running a route against Florida Atlantic when QB Tommy Armstrong Jr.'s pass almost got picked off by an Owls defender.
That near turnover led to this:
It's not the first eye-catching grab Westerkamp's made. Last...
The 2014 college football season is less than a week old, and Nebraska wide receiver Jordan Westerkamp already has provided a “catch of the year” candidate.
During Saturday’s game between the Corn Huskers and Florida Atlantic, Westerkamp showed incredible hand-eye coordination to catch a pass behind his back after the ball was tipped by an opponent.
Check out the play in the...
When it’s the first week of college football, it’s silly to get too overexcited about what happens during the initial slate of games. Good games will be had, but for the most part, the best moments still await down the road. That won’t likely be the case in the competition for catch of the year. Nebraska’s Jordan Westerkamp already has that achievement locked down. On a tipped...
It may only be the first weekend in college football, but I think it’s safe to say that this will be tough to top. Nebraska Cornhuskers’ wide receiver Jordan Westerkamp couldn’t adjust to a tipped ball, so he threw his hands behind his back and made this insane catch.

The 2014 college football season is merely a few days old, and already we have a strong candidate for catch of the year. We feel confident in saying that the behind-the-back catch Nebraska wide receiver Jordan Westerkamp made on Saturday may not be topped in the next four or five months.
