The Alliance of American Football has featured some pretty amazing plays in its short lifespan. But perhaps the best catch of the season belongs to a furry friend who performed at halftime.

During halftime of the AAF game between the Orlando Apollos and Memphis Express, a dog was sent out to catch a frisbee... from a fairly long distance - 83 yards to be exact.

Sure enough, the dog caught the ball. Per J.C. Carnahan, the PA announcer at the game, stated that the catch was an all-time record.

You can see the incredible throw and catch here:

The Apollos wound up having a pretty fun games themselves. Steve Spurrier's team was able to hold off the Express for a 21-17 win, lifting the team to a 3-0 record in the process.

Orlando and the Birmingham Iron (2-0) are now the only remaining undefeated teams in the AAF this season.

As for the Express, the loss continued the team's rough start to its existence under head coach Mike Singletary. The team is now 0-3 and even lost its only preseason game.

The Atlanta Legends are similarly winless with an 0-2 record and no preseason wins.

One thing is for sure: The upstart Alliance of American Football is continuing to entertain fans, and is giving the NFL plenty to look at in the weeks and months to come.
