Nebraska ran the very same play to the other side of the field a week ago against Michigan, but Turner lost the ball in the lights.
Offensive coordinator Tim Beck called it again. This time it worked.
Jamal Turner’s 5-yard TD reception — the first of his career — from Taylor Martinez with six seconds remaining gave the Huskers a 28-24 victory over Michigan State Saturday at Spartan Stadium.
Turner was glad to get another chance at a touchdown.
“It feels ready good,” Turner said. “I’m just going to build off of this. That’s all I really can do. I’ve been working really hard this year to be able to play, not even to score, to be able to get on the field. They put a lot of trust in me and I want to thank them. I won’t stop working hard. We can just go uphill from here.”
But there was so much that had to happen before Turner got a chance at that touchdown catch.
The Huskers took over with 1:20 left on the clock on their own 20. They didn’t have to have a timeout. A field goal would tie the score and send it into overtime.
