When Tanner Lee stretched into the endzone to give Nebraska its first lead, it appeared the Huskers were going to do just enough to avoid disaster. But Northern Illinois’ offense found an answer, and didn’t take long to notch its first points of the day to make it 21-17.

The Huskers had chances to respond, but a late interception and a penalty on the NU defense allowed NIU to kill the clock and sneak out of Lincoln with the upset.
