(KWWL) -

A catch was made last night that many could debate is the catch of the year, so far.

It was during the Stanford UCLA football game Thursday night.

Stanford ran a trick play that ended with quarterback Kevin Hogan launching the ball into the end-zone for wide receiver Francis Owasu.

Owasu catches the ball by pinning it against the defenders back.

The play was reviewed and was ruled a touchdown.

Stanford went on to beat their PAC 12 rival 56-35.
