Just a second
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.
