TBT: WVU WR Bryce Ford-Wheaton Makes Impressive TD Catch to Beat Iowa State



Conveniently for West Virginia, this week offers a throwback Thursday about the Mountaineers upcoming opponent.

This week allows a look back to around this time a year ago. Fans witnessed WVU wide receiver Bryce Ford-Wheaton make one of his most impressive catches ever. Ford-Wheaton caught a pass from former WVU quarterback Jarret Doege in the back of the end zone during a 38-31 win over a Cyclones team that traveled to Morgantown ranked number 22 in the country.

This wasn’t just any touchdown catch though. Ford-Wheaton had to contort his body some to stay inbounds with the ball. Ford-Wheaton managed to beat the defender, catch the ball that was thrown slightly beyond the inbounds line and maintain possession.

No description would even fully do justice to the difficult of the catch. Ford-Wheaton’s catch came as part of a day he caught six balls for 106 yards and scored two touchdowns.

WVU and Iowa State will meet again this Saturday. Kickoff is set for 3:30 EST and the game will air on ESPN+.
