The Cornhuskers avoided a loss with this play.
College football’s Week 10 slate wasn’t particularly deep with intriguing matchups, but there was plenty of intrigue.
Nebraska-Northwestern provided the weekend’s best finish, as the Cornhuskers scored on a 49-yard touchdown pass on the final play of the game.
Quarterback Ron Kellogg barely got the pass into the endzone, but the ball was batted and caught by receiver Jordan Westerkamp for the touchdown.
Considering how much pressure coach Bo Pelini has been under the last few weeks, this win will help quiet some of his critics – at least until next Saturday.
