Nebraska special teams delivers clutch FG block vs. Iowa
Nebraska’s special teams unit stood up with their backs against the goal line to deliver a big-time play against Iowa. Ty Robinson was credited with a blocked field goal with Iowa looking to convert a short kick to break the scoreless tie.
That try by Iowa was set up by a fumble from Nebraska’s punt-return team. After forcing the Hawkeyes into a punt, Ethan Nation fumbled the ball right back to Iowa inside Nebraska’s red zone.
The good news is IOwa was forced backward by penalties and the Nebraska defense after previously marching into a 1st-and-goal situation from the 6-yard line. Ultimately, Drew Stevens’ 30-yard attempt was blocked by Robinson as Nebraska stood tall early on.

The two sides are facing off in frigid conditions in Lincoln on Black Friday, and points were already expected to be at a premium prior to the blocked field goal. Fans who bet the under are probably feeling even better after that short field goal was kept off the board by the Huskers.
