LSU’s Odell Beckham Jr. had the best catch for a touchback you’ll ever see (GIF)

Touchbacks on kickoffs are relatively boring, and that's how the NCAA and NFL want them to be. Both have made significant modifications in recent years to increase the number of them, decreasing the number of kickoff returns in a game.

But the touchback that LSU's Odell Beckham Jr. caught in the second quarter against Georgia was definitely not boring. As the kick started to sail over his head and out the back of the end zone, Beckham calmly reached up with his right hand and snatched the ball out of the air like the ball had simply been tossed to him.

That kickoff was not a simple toss. It was bombed, and turning end over end. Catching a ball that's rotating like that without pinning it against your body is tough enough, but with one hand? That's special. And probably one of the reasons why Beckham was named the preseason all-SEC kick returner even if plays like that mean LSU starts on the 25 just like any other touchback.
