You know Iowa’s Matt VandeBerg had a sensational touchdown catch for Iowa Saturday night against Iowa State.

North Dakota State, Iowa’s opponent Saturday, has a player who can make eye-popping receptions, too. Junior Bison wide receiver R.J. Urzendowski makes a 43-yard reception in his team’s 50-44 overtime win over Eastern Washington last Saturday in the Fargodome. The video is linked above the text here.

It looked for a while like an interception of Easton Stick’s long pass by EWU’s D’londo Tucker. Urzendowski had other ideas.

Urzendowski has four catches in two games, not a lot. But he’s averaging 30.3 yards per reception. That’s a lot.
