Watch: Rashod Bateman makes insane one-handed TD catch

What a grab!

Gopher wide receiver Rashod Bateman made a spectacular one-handed grab for a touchdown in the final minute of the first half to put Minnesota up 13-7 heading into halftime against South Dakota State.

The stunning catch is something Odell Beckham Jr. would be proud of, as he seemingly juggled the ball in one hand before reaching the end zone.

Bateman had 5 catches for 132 yards in the first half alone.

The sophomore wide receiver is poised for a big season after an impressive freshman season that saw him grab 51 receptions, 704 receiving yards and six touchdowns.
