    T10) Xavier Worthy, WR, Texas: 20.8 mph

    T3) Robert Lewis, WR, Georgia State: 21.5 mph

    2) Anthony Gould, WR, Oregon State: 21.6 mph

    We all knew Anthony Gould was fast, but after this screen pass turned touchdown, he’s even faster than we anticipated. Gould hit 21.6 mph on the radar with his touchdown.

    1) Isaiah Sategna, WR, Arkansas: 21.9 mph

    Both of Arkansas’ first two touchdowns against BYU came with impressive displays of athleticism and speed. Isaiah Sategna topped out at 21.9 mph on his punt return for a touchdown early against the Cougars.
