Exciting finish! Nebraska's spring game ends with walk-off touchdown
Nebraska’s spring game ended in thrilling fashion.
With the Red team leading the White team 20-14 in the fourth quarter of Saturday’s scrimmage, the White team got one more opportunity to drive down the field and win the game. It was received a free, untimed down to make it happened, and took advantage.
A flurry of good passes and better catches put the White team in position to throw a 30-yard touchdown pass to win the game. Time actually expired on the play prior to the final touchdown throw, but head coach Scott Frost allowed for one untimed down.
Heinrich Haarberg hit Wyatt Liewer in the end zone to lift the White team to a 21-20 victory over the Red team.

The Red team will probably want a word with the coaching staff about that end result.
Earlier in the drive, William Nixon helped set up the game-winning score by making a ridiculous one-handed catch while heading out of bounds to move the ball down the field.

Nebraska’s spring game marked the second time in the last month that the school allowed fans to attend an open practice. In April, fans were permitted inside Memorial Stadium for a more traditional practice.
The Huskers are looking to build some momentum heading into the 2021 season, the fourth year under Frost.
