So, you remember when Nebraska beat Northwestern on an out-of-this-world Hail Mary last season?

Wide receiver Jordan Westerkamp, a Montini Catholic grad, hauled in that prayer of a pass to knock off his hometown Big Ten team. In Lincoln lore, they dubbed it "The Westercatch."

Well, as phenomenal a play as that was — perhaps one of the nuttiest endings in college football history — Westerkamp might have topped himself Saturday.

In Nebraska's game against Florida Atlantic, a 55-7 drubbing by the Huskers, Westerkamp took a pass from Tommy Armstrong Jr. and made the circus catch to end all circus catches.

Just watch:

Behind the back! Behind. The. Back.

Let's call it "The Westercatch II."
