Social media remembers the 2009 Big 12 title game during the Sugar Bowl

College football fans have been having a field day on social media following the 2024 Sugar Bowl. The No. 2 Washington Huskies defeated the No. 3 Texas Longhorns, 37-31, on Monday evening.

The game ended on a Texas pass into the end zone that fell incomplete, but it was Texas’ reaction before the game-deciding play that had Nebraska fans take to social media.

On the second to last play, Longhorn quarterback Qwinn Ewers threw the ball out of bounds with time expiring but the officials added one second to the game clock to give Texas a chance to run a final play to win the game.

Nebraska fans began to reminisce about the ending of the 2009 Big 12 Championship. In that game, the Cornhuskers lost to Texas, 12-10, when the Longhorns had a controversial second added to the clock, giving the Big 12 South team a chance to kick a game-winning field goal as time expired.

A decade and a half later, Nebraska fans are still voicing their anger about Texas receiving that extra second, and the Cornhuskers faithful had a bit of a laugh at the Longhorn’s expense. You can find some of those social media reactions below.
