SMU Defender Jumps Clear Over Blocker In Order To Get To Opposing QB

We’re not sure there’s an established list of most athletic plays ever made on the defensive side of the football in history, but if there is, this is now on there.

SMU linebacker Issac Slade-Matautia jumped clear over a Houston Cougars running back in order to get to the QB and then jump again to deflect the throw.

Despite the play, Houston topped the 17th ranked Mustangs and handed them their first loss on the season.
