Nelson Spruce improbably hauls in pass for a touchdown

How in the world does Colorado receiver Nelson Spruce come down with this ball? Dude was absolutely blanketed by Arizona State defensive back Armand Perry.

As color analyst Kelly Stouffer put it, Spruce “has amazing ball skills.” I’ll say. Spruce finished his night with seven catches for 97 yards and two touchdowns.

The catch shown above was yet another pass thrown into tight coverage by young quarterback Sefo Liufau. Unfortunately for the Buffs, the efforts from Liufau and Spruce came in a 38-24 loss.
