Ahmad Wagner had the Greatest Touchdown Catch in the History of American Football

Ahmad Wagner proved once again that he is an unstoppable force on the outside of UK’s offense.

Facing a third and nine on the Florida 26-yard line, Sawyer Smith turned to his favorite target. Wagner was hit in midair, but he was unbothered. When the Florida cornerback got his hand on the ball, he still didn’t care. He was going to catch the ball no matter what. The results of Wagner’s efforts are immaculate.

The incredible play was Wagner’s second impressive reception of the day. Facing a third and 21, Wagner got one toe in just inches away from the sideline for a 23-yard gain to move the chains. It proved to be the catalyst for Kentucky’s first scoring drive, one that ended with Wagner’s unbelievable reception.

For those keeping track at home, in 16 career targets Wagner has drawn 7 pass interference penalties and caught 8 passes for 177 yards and 2 touchdowns. Not too shabby.

    Why didn’t we throw to him on the last drive of the half? No one can defend him.

      We haven’t thrown deep all game. I’m guessing it’s for 1 of 2 reasons or both… 1) UF pass rush has us worried we won’t have time to throw 2) UF knows he can throw deep so they’re covering it.

    He was being mugged, his face mask grabbed and oh, by the way, he caught the freaking ball.

    Smith is making a difference in the passing game.

    It was def a good catch… That made me celebrate here in my living room big time!!! But cmon now it wasn’t the greatest catch ever…. OBJ one handed catch right off jumps to my mind that was def a better catch and I am sure there are others…. Not to be a downer plus I like this QB better than our last couple starters we have had… I just hope Stoops will let him throw it and open up his playbook….

    Stoops is great at leaving stuff in the tank for late game use. I sure hope he’s doing that now.

      You better be right or his conservative playcalling has got us beat… Took the foot off the pedal to fast tonight.. Maybe Sawyer can bail Stoops out tonight

      What is the formal adjective/description for the person who follows a blog for a team they don’t like just to try and get under the skin of people who are passionate about a game and team that brings them joy. IDK but it clearly is someone that literally and obviously does have absolutely nothing better to do with his time!
