UofL FOOTBALL | Jaylen Smith describes the biggest play of his college career

10/31/2016 07:05 PM

The playoff dreams are still intact for the University of Louisville football team, thanks to the game-winning catch by Jaylen Smith in the Cards 32-25 victory over Virginia.

The team was favored by over four touchdowns but found themselves down one point in the closing seconds. That’s when U of L quarterback Lamar Jackson took a shot at the endzone. To Jackson’s and the whole team’s delight, it was Smith that caught the 50-50 ball. But the sophomore receiver says the pass wasn’t a 50-50, it was a perfectly thrown ball from Jackson, and it was the biggest catch of his young career.
