NFL hopeful quarterback Josh Allen will get most of the headlines for Wyoming this season, but the play of the day so far goes to cornerback Rico Gafford.
The West Des Moines, Iowa native is playing in a de facto homecoming game today at the Iowa Hawkeyes, and made one of the most athletic interceptions you’ll see all week.
Fellow cornerback Tyler Hall deflected a pass by Iowa’s Nathan Stanley straight up into the air, and Gafford made an awesome diving, one-handed interception on the ball.
Here are a few looks at the play.

There is no score yet at Kinnick Stadium. Both defenses have had very strong starts, and this has the look of a rock fight so far. The game is being broadcast on Big Ten Network.
