Nebraska’s yo-yo season rolled right along against Northwestern. On the final play of the game, Ron Kellogg III completed a 49-yard Hail Mary touchdown pass to receiver Jordan Westerkamp to give the Cornhuskers a shocking, 27-24 win over the reeling Wildcats.
Coach Bo Pelini took heat early in the season after a loss to UCLA, and then again audio leaked of him ranting about ‘Huskers fans. Things settled down in Lincoln after the team righted the ship. However, after a loss to Minnesota last week, Pelini was back under fire. Former Nebraska players such as Tommie Frazier are even calling for his head.
While a last-minute victory over reeling Northwestern may not hush the criticism, it certainly prevented a loss that Nebraska could not afford.
