In the top of the first against Notre Dame, outfielder Ryan Cole fouled off a pitch toward the first-base foul line. Robertson, a first baseman, tracked the ball and ran as fast as he could toward it. He then caught the ball for the out and flipped headfirst over the Fighting Irish’s dugout railing.

Robertson finished 0-for-4 at the plate, but the Sooners were still able to win the game 6-2.
