Joe Adams’ punt return against Tennessee was certainly one of the best plays during the college football season. It ranked among the top sports plays of the year.

Was it THE play of the 2011-12 sports year?

Currently Adams is up for ESPY Play of the Year in fan voting for ESPN.com. Adams was voted into the final round of voting and is matched up in the “tournament” against a catch by Lower Columbia College's outfielder Derrick Salberg, an Edson Barboza wheelhouse kick, and Indiana's Christian Watford hitting the game winner versus Kentucky. Today is the final day of voting and you can tune in to ESPN tomorrow night to see all the winners.

Here’s the Adams’ catch if you haven’t seen it in a while:

ESPN will air the ESPYs on July 11.
