Bonner and the Cougars were playing the UConn Huskies when he beat his defender deep into the corner of the end zone. (SLIDESHOW: Get College Football Started Right With These Top 25 Ranked Cheerleaders)

Quarterback Greg Ward Jr. dropped a dime pass into the corner and Bonner made an absolutely incredible grab.

There’s a solid chance that’ll be the best catch of the year. Mind-blowing extension with the arm to grab that ball. The Cougars rocked UConn 42-14, and appear to be cruising towards the playoffs.
