Simultaneous Catch

Ending to 9/24/12 NFL game
A simultaneous catch may be more probable in Ultimate - compared to football - because it's easier to catch the disc with one hand, but rare for either sport nonetheless.

From the 11th Edition [USAU Rules]
XV. The Receiver
D. If offensive and defensive players catch the disc simultaneously, the offense retains possession.

II. Definitions
O. Possession of the disc: Sustained contact with, and control of, a non-spinning disc.
1. Catching a pass is equivalent to establishing possession of that pass.
2. Loss of possession due to ground contact related to a catch negates that player's possession up to that point.
