ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Nebraska had already stormed the field in celebration, having seemingly pulled off a huge upset in the Big 12 championship.
Except, upon further review, Texas still had one more second. And that was all the No. 3 Longhorns needed to completely change Nebraska's emotions — and keep the Cornhuskers from pulling off a BCS-changing shocker.
The clock showed :00 after Texas quarterback Colt McCoy scrambled and threw the ball out of bounds. But while Nebraska players threw up their arms in celebration and ran onto the field, officials waved their arms trying to gain control of what proved to be a premature celebration.
A second was put back on the clock after the play was reviewed. Hunter Lawrence then made a 46-yard field goal for a 13-12 Texas victory Saturday night.
