  • According to ESPN's win probability model, Nebraska had a 2.7% chance of winning before Ron Kellogg III's 49-yard hail mary touchdown pass to Jordan Westerkamp as time expired. The play increased Nebraska's win probability by 97.3 percentage points, the largest increase in win probability for any play this season.
