Hail Mary Saves Huskers: Jordan Westerkamp's 49-yard touchdown catch on a Hail Mary heave from Ron Kellogg III gave Nebraska a 27-24 walk-off win in one of the most dramatic games in Memorial Stadium history.
   In a game ruled for the final two-and-half quarters by the defenses, Kellogg led the Huskers 83 yards in the final 1:14, capped by his heroic toss to Westerkamp as time expired. It is believed to be the first Hail Mary, walk-off win in regulation in Husker history.
