Yes, this just happened. This catch by Bryan Edwards made it a 39-31 South Florida lead with 9:35 left.
You can see it - the ball tipped off the diving defender’s hands, and before it hit the ground, it somehow went into Edwards’ hands. Catch of the year? You decide.

The Gamecocks may not beat USF in the Birmingham Bowl, but they’ll have this incredible catch to remember.
