Neb's Westerkamp: Behind-the-back catch 'all luck'

Nebraska WR Jordan Westerkamp is Not the Only Cornhusker to Break Out Against Florida Atlantic

For the Nebraska Cornhuskers the bulk of the attention has been going to sophomore wide receiver Jordan Westerkamp and deservedly so. His behind-the-back catch on the sidelinee is going to be hard to top for catch of the year, but that wasn't all he did. The youngster ended the day with seven catches for 125 yards and a touchdown (second career TD and 100+ yard game).Thanks to...

Nebraska WR's behind-the-back grab may be weirdest you'll see all year

When it comes time to compile the odd, circus-like grabs of 2014, it's going to be hard to rival Jordan Westerkamp's on Saturday. The Nebraska sophomore wide receiver was running a route against Florida Atlantic when QB Tommy Armstrong Jr.'s pass almost got picked off by an Owls defender.

Watch: Nebraska receiver makes college football’s catch of the year

When it’s the first week of college football, it’s silly to get too overexcited about what happens during the initial slate of games. Good games will be had, but for the most part, the best moments still await down the road. That won’t likely be the case in the competition for catch of the year. Nebraska’s Jordan Westerkamp already has that achievement locked down. On a tipped...

Video: Michigan’s Brendan Gibbons Nails Game-Tying Field Goal As Time Expires

Northwestern must be the most unlucky final-play-in-regulation team in the entire country. Two weeks ago, the Wildcats lost to Nebraska on a ridiculous 49-yard “hail mary” pass from Ron Kellogg III to Jordan Westerkamp. Today, Michigan’s Brendan Gibbons ran onto the field with under 10 seconds to go and somehow nailed a 44-yard field goal as time expired. The execution was...

On Nebraska's official athletics Web site, quarterback Ron Kellogg III is scouted like this: "will continue to be a valuable part of Nebraska's quarterback depth chart in 2013." That, evidently, is code for "will play only when it's time to throw it to the end zone from super far away." How do you like him now? That's Kellogg completing a 49...
