Fresno State DB Derron Smith makes spectacular interception and then his team turns it back over

Fresno State defensive back Derron Smith won the award for the most athletic play of the night with a spectacular interception against Rutgers Gary Nova.

Nova’s pass was tipped and smith jumped in front of the would-be receiver, yanked the ball from his hands which cause him to spin around mid-air. However, he still managed to land with both feet in-bounds and keep the ball nestled in one arm.

It was truly spectacular.

And it came at a great time because Fresno State had just turned the ball over the play before.

Unfortunately for the Bulldogs, the elation was short-lived as they turned the ball back over on the next possession, which led to a Rutgers touchdown.
