Austin Buysse, legend. 

Remember the Minnesotan who went viral back in June when he made a bare-handed catch in the crowd at the College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska? He caught the ball, chugged a full beer and immediately went viral. 

That guy was at it again on Saturday, this time in a planned stunt while ESPN's "College GameDay" broadcast live from Brookings, South Dakota before the border battle Dakota Marker football game between No. 1 North Dakota State and No. 3 South Dakota State. 

As it turns out, Austin Buysse, a former star athlete at Minneota High school in southwestern Minnesota, is an event facilities manager at South Dakota State University. 

ESPN took the opportunity to recreate the viral College World Series moment by having Reece Davis throw Buysse a baseball and then chug a water in the crowd. It wasn't a beer, but hey, Buysse was probably busy working all day Saturday.

NDSU, by the way, went on to win the game 23-16 to remain undefeated. SDSU's only other loss this season is to the undefeated Minnesota Gophers, whom they nearly upset at TCF Bank Stadium.
