Just another routine game at Memorial Stadium. Yep, another lazy and uneventful Saturday afternoon.
Yeah, right. For the third straight game, the Nebraska football team kept fans on the edge of their seats until the fateful final seconds. Only this time there was no victory for Big Red to celebrate.
Texas Tech quarterback Cody Hodges bought time for himself in the pocket before delivering a 10-yard touchdown strike to wide receiver Joel Filani with 12 seconds remaining, sending the Red Raiders to a 34-31 triumph before a crowd of 77,580.
Filani’s third touchdown catch of the day capped a wild final few minutes and let Tech escape town with a 5-0 record, including 2-0 in the Big 12.
Nebraska (4-1, 1-1) took solace in rallying from a 21-0 deficit, grabbing a 28-27 lead – the Huskers’ first of the day – on Terrence Nunn’s 4-yard touchdown catch with 10 minutes remaining and extending the margin on Jordan Congdon’s 27-yard field goal five minutes later.
“It makes our coaching staff and everyone in the program proud,
