The Wisconsin Badgers are known for their running game but showed in the Cotton Bowl vs. Western Michigan Monday that they can toss it around, too. Badgers tight end Troy Fumagalli pulled in a crazy, one-handed catch for Wisconsin early in Monday's game.
On the opening drive of the Cotton Bowl, Wisconsin quarterback Bart Houston hit Fumagalli fo a 20-yard gain, and the big fella had to lay out and pull in the ball with one hand.

It was an impressive grab for the 6-foot-6, 248-pound tight end, one of the more sure-handed receivers on the Badgers roster.
It's even more impressive considering he made the one-handed catch with only four fingers, as Fumagalli was born with a disorder that forced doctors to amputate his left-hand pointer finger shortly after he was born.
So not only was Fumagalli's catch one of the better grabs we've seen in bowl season, it was by far the best four-fingered catch of the year.
Wisconsin capped the drive with a Corey Clement touchdown run to take an early 7-0 lead over the Broncos.
