Nebraska beats Northwestern on Hail Mary (Video)

Nebraska was down to its very last play.

Down 24-21 to Northwestern with just four seconds left in regulation, the Cornhuskers were in complete desperation mode and dialed up a Hail Mary. From the Northwestern 49-yard line, Huskers backup quarterback Ron Kellogg III, a former walk-on, dropped back to pass, rolled right, stepped up and fired a bomb nearly 60 yards through the air toward the end zone as the clock ticked down to zero.

The ball approached a crowd of Huskers and Wildcats near the goal line, deflected off a Wildcat defender and improbably fell right into the waiting arms of redshirt freshman Jordan Westerkamp for the winning touchdown, the first of Westerkamp’s career.

Northwestern led 21-7 late in the second quarter until Nebraska clawed back to within a touchdown with a Quincy Enunwa touchdown catch.

The Huskers defense struck in the third quarter when Avery Moss picked off a Trevor Siemian pass for a 25-yard touchdown to notch things up at 21-21. The fourth quarter was a defensive struggle before Nebraska starter Tommy Armstrong made what appeared to be a colossal mistake, throwing an interception to Northwestern’s Tyler Scott with 2:25 to go.

Scott returned the interception to the Nebraska 7-yard line, but the Husker defense stood tall, and limited the Wildcats to just a 21-yard Jeff Budzien field goal, which ultimately set up Kellogg and Westerkamp’s heroics.

The Huskers took over with just 1:20 to go with no timeouts remaining. Kellogg replaced Armstrong, but after a Max Chapman sack, Nebraska faced a fourth-and-15 from its own 24. Kellogg found Ameer Abdullah, who made a fantastic individual effort to dive for the crucial first down.

After two short completions, Kellogg unleashed his mighty throw to cap the improbable win and improve the Cornhuskers' record to 6-2.
