Ameer Abdullah Rescues Nebraska with Wild Play against McNeese State


Ameer Abdullah saved Nebraska from embarrassment with a wild 58-yard catch for the Cornhuskers’ game-winning score in a 31-24 over McNeese State of the FCS.

Abdullah broke five tackles on a short pass from Tommy Armstrong with 1:03 to go against a McNeese team that had defeated USF and Middle Tennessee in the last two seasons.

Take a look:

The Nebraska running back had an otherwise quiet game with 54 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries as McNeese State gave Nebraska all it could handle. Nebraska never had a lead bigger than 10 points before McNeese tied the game with 4:21 to go.

Nebraska visits Fresno State next week.
