Thanks to a fake 27-yard field goal, the Nebraska Huskers have crawled within 24-17 of Texas Tech with 12:10 left in the game.
On fourth-and-7 from the Tech 9, Alex Henery lined up to attempt a field goal. But the holder, Jake Wesch, rose up and lofted an 8-yard pass to Mike McNeill that gave the Huskers a first-and-goal at the 1.
From there, Nebraska quarterback Joe Ganz snuck into the end zone from the 1.
The TD drive covered 73 yards and 13 plays and lasted 7:37.
