After starting Nebraska’s 2013 campaign as the third-string quarterback, Ron Kellogg III saved the Cornhuskers’ season with no time remaining on the clock against Northwestern. Kellogg III replaced Tommy Armstrong Jr. and became a hero in just a few seconds’ time.
Even more importantly, RKIII has been immortalized in a Techmo Bowl version of his 49-yard Hail Mary pass to Jordan Westerkamp. What more could a young gunslinger possibly ask for?
His toss gave the Huskers a 27-24 victory over the Wildcats, and moved Nebraska to 6-2 on the year.
