October 25, 2020

Ohio State wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba had an impressive touchdown catch Saturday afternoon as the Buckeyes defeated Nebraska for their first win of the season.

Smith-Njigba was in the back of the end zone and when he grabbed the pass from Justin Fields, it appeared he was falling out of bounds. But at the last minute, Smith-Njigba touched his toes down inbounds and picked up the points for the Buckeyes.
