Nebraska beats Northwestern on Hail Mary (GIF)

It was a wild week to be a Pelini. For Nebraska Cornhuskers head coach Bo Pelini, it looked like he could be in danger of losing his job this season, but a wild ending may have been all that he needed to save it.

Nebraska was on their way to dropping to 5-3 with a loss to Northwestern, but Ron Kellogg III pulled off a miracle and hit Jordan Westerkamp for a 49-yard Hail Mary touchdown to score the last second win and leave the Cornhuskers celebrating.

Check out a GIF of the wild ending below, via Land-Grant Holy Land on Twitter:

That is the stuff that you dream of as a quarterback and never do you think you will get to pull it off.

For the Cornhuskers, Pelini and Kellogg, it was a perfect ending that allowed them to breathe a little easier heading in to next week.
