Just a sec­ond

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

One of Bo Pelini’s proud­est mo­ments last year came af­ter the Huskers’ biggest dis­ap­point­ment — the 13-12 loss to Texas in the Big 12 cham­pi­onship game, when of­fi­cials put a sec­ond back on the clock at the end, en­abling UT’s Hunter Lawrence to boot the game-win­ning, 46-yard field goal.

“That was hard to re­cover from, but the young men in our pro­gram did not blink an eye,” Pelini said in a June speech in his home­town of Youngstown, Ohio. “They stayed to­gether, and they de­cided they were go­ing to go out and make a state­ment against a heck­uva foot­ball team.”

That was the 33-0 vic­tory over Ari­zona in the Hol­i­day Bowl.
