  1. I woulda been scared if I was Westerkamp, with all of my 300+pound offensive linemen jumping on me in celebration. He coulda been crushed to death! LOL Great finish to a great game!!! Go Big Red!!!

  2. The 2013 season might not have been what Husker fans wanted…but this play will always be remembered. What a moment, it still sends chills down my spine to watch 🙂

  3. It's extra padding or a flak jacket lol, rib cage or whatever you wanna call it, yes he is fat but look at Ben worthlessbruger, I mean rothlisberger

  4. Im surprised how a 250lb QB can throw a ball 70 yards! When I saw that I flipped out in my chair (not the QB, but the whole play!)

  5. Why do they always give the credit to the QB?  He chucks an air ball and then he's done.  That was all Westerkamp!  

  6. That's quite possibly the most nonchalant, laid back reaction to a win following a last second play. He's like, "Cool. Now, where can I take a piss?"

  7. The announcer said "It's a Nebraska loss."  WTF???  It's a Nebraska WIN!!! In grand fashion!!  One of the greatest plays in college football this past season!  As for the Huskers, I think it's right above Quincy Enunwa's 99 yard TD in the Gator Bowl.

  8. "Going 0-4, needing a win, on the road, in Lincoln with a banged-up football team. What a great, gutty performance."

    Oops! Spoke too soon, buddy! LMAO

    GO BIG REEEEEEEED

  9. Man, you gotta feel bad for the Northwestern players. Played their hearts out and to lose like that, their feeling is summed up by one player, #44 in the back of the endzone as he catches the tip.

  10. Best day of my life. I live on the west coast and only get to one game a year, and this was the one I went back for. Having been at the previous NW game two years ago, I was convinced never to go back for another NW game because we always seem to play like crap against them. However this, wow. Every time I watch this video the same emotions come right back. 

  11. I remember leaving thinking "They won't win." Then I turned on the radio in curiosity and I heard this catch was made. I was so mad!!!

  12. when i saw this game and the winning catch i was like this guy is only a freshman he will be on of the best wrs in the country someday and will probably go to the nfl some day

  13. that is one fat fucking quarterback, bet hes better at throwing big macs into his mouth than throwing a football

  14. I thought the game was over and my dad said "it's once bud we win we lose" Then he throws it and tipped and ball game G.B.R 7-0

  15. why did Kellogg run down to the other end of the field and not towards Westerkamp? That was just selfish… 🙁

  16. Cornhuskers, please???!!!!! I loved them growing up in New England -Jarvis Redwine? I.M. Hipp? Keith 'Endzone' Jones? BUT with the departure of Osborne  and then Solich….I turned away………..

  17. This was typical for Bo. Every single year he was at Nebraska it seemed like there were 4 games that Nebraska was out played and beat and then some miracle happens and they pull out a victory. The opener at Wyoming is one, against McNeese St, against Ohio St (when Fickle was interim coach) those are just the ones I can think off the top of my head. That luck kept him employed at Nebraska for several years more than he should have been.

  18. If you live in Nebraska, you'll certainly know what I'm talking about.  Whenever they score a touchdown, someone yells "GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIG REEEEEEEEEEEEEED!" and then the rest of the crowd chants "GO BIG RED!"  They certainly did on this night.

  19. Most overrated play in nebraska football history. Seriously what did it accomplish? We beat 1 and 7 team in big 10 a d we finished 9-4 instead of 8-5

  20. Defenders are always told, "don't try to catch the ball. Knock it down". Instead, he wanted to pad his stats with an INT and instead lost the game for them.
