Walker got his hands on the ball and batted it behind him as he came down. Walker then stuck his hands behind his back to somehow corral the football. He made one of the wildest interceptions at any level of the sport and returned it near the opposing team’s 10-yard line.

“As soon as I threw the pick, I knew what I had to do differently,” Marshall said after the game, via Sports Illustrated. “I just wasn’t thinking about that last play. As soon as I threw the pick, I just thought about it on the bench, then as soon as I came out, it wasn’t on my mind at all. I just knew I had to go down the field and score.”
