It appears former Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini is still bitter about the 2009 Big 12 Championship game.

Texas and Nebraska battled it out in a sluggish defensive affair. The Huskers Ndamukong Suh rattled Texas quarterback Colt McCoy all night long. McCoy led a game-winning field goal drive despite his struggles, taking down Nebraska 13-12.

The win clinched a spot in the BCS National Championship game while Nebraska dropped their fourth game of the year.

Pelini appeared on “Pardon My Take” where he sounded off on the Big 12 Conference “cheating” Nebraska out of the game.

They (Big 12 Conference) f***ing lied. That (2009 Big 12 Championship Game) was a screw job… because they wanted Texas to go to the National Championship game. Lets face it, they wanted a team from the Big 12. We won the game. The game was over.

McCoy’s final throw was ruled incomplete with one second left on the clock, leaving time for Hunter Lawrence to walk the game off with a 46-yard field goal.
