For a while, it looked like this touchdown by Maurice Washington was going to propel Nebraska to a big road win.
By now, everyone is aware of what happened in the brutal loss to Colorado. Yes, the Cornhuskers wasted a 17-0 lead and let a huge rivalry game slip away, but Washington had an incredible performance that earned a spotlight.
Washington had 195 total yards of offense in the defeat and scored what was a crucial touchdown just after the start of the fourth quarter. He took a short screen pass 75 yards for a touchdown, and the play was so well executed that FOX analyst Reggie Bush tabbed it as the Run of the Week.
