Coverage

No. 5 Horns Escape on Late Kick: The first field goal attempt of Ryan Bailey's career with 23 seconds left in the game gave No. 5 Texas a 22-20 victory over the No. 17 Huskers.

With three minutes left, Nebraska had the ball and a 20-19 lead. But a fumble after a third-down pass completion gave Texas the ball in Husker territory. Texas drove to the Husker 5, and Bailey kicked the 22-yard game-winner.

Nebraska drove to midfield in the waning seconds, but two last-ditch passes into the end zone were incomplete.
