Jake Bobo scores his first NFL touchdown, celebrates with former UCLA teammates
Jake Bobo scored his first NFL touchdown on Sunday for the Seattle Seahawks in a 37-27 win over the Carolina Panthers.
Seattle was up 29-20 with a little more than four minutes to play when quarterback Geno Smith tossed one up toward the back of the endzone for the 6-foot-5 wideout to go get. Bobo brought it in and got both feet down for his only catch of the game.

After the score, he celebrated with former UCLA teammates Zach Charbonnet and Raiqwon O’Neal.
Charbonnet also nearly had his own touchdown in the fourth quarter on a bruising run that saw the former All-American de-cleat a would-be tackler.

Charbonnet finished with 46 yards on nine carries.
Bobo had one catch a week ago against Detroit. After going undrafted in the 2023 NFL Draft, he’s starting to push for more attention in the Seattle offense.
In 2022, Bobo started all 13 games for the Bruins and led the team with 57 receptions for 817 yards and seven touchdowns. He had 142 yards and two touchdowns in the Bruins’ win over Washington, then had eight catches for 101 yards and a touchdown against Oregon.
