If you’re a child of the 1980s and a Nebraska fan, the below video is going to make your day. The Tecmo Bowl YouTube account, which has recently started to create reenactments of big-time football plays, immortalized Jordan Westerkamp’s “hail mary” 49-yard touchdown catch from this past Saturday against Northwestern. Needless to say, it’s awesome.
Tecmo Bowl was originally released as an arcade game in 1988, but gained popularity following its release on NES in 1989. Westerkamp wasn’t even born until another five years later.

The West Mesquite (Texas), a onetime 2013 defensive end prospect, was committed to Arizona State, and then Missouri before settling on Nebraska just days before National Letter of Intent day. These days, Mixon who never enrolled at Nebraska, is exploring his options once again and they do include the Sun Devils.
If Nebraska makes it back to the Big Ten championship game, the Cornhuskers might look at Jordan Westerkamp's tipped-ball touchdown on the last play against Northwestern as the one that saved their season and maybe even Bo Pelini's job.
The Huskers (6-2, 3-1) head to Michigan this week alone in second place behind Michigan State (8-1, 5-0). If they win - Wolverines coach...
(Eds: With AP Photos.) By ERIC OLSON AP College Football Writer Long an after-thought when it comes to Nebraska's quarterback depth chart, Ron Kellogg III finally got his turn in the spotlight, and did he ever shine.
Kellogg still seemed overwhelmed Monday, two days after he threw the desperation pass from midfield that was tipped and landed in Jordan Westerkamp's hands...
