Video: Highlights of BYU's last-play comeback win over Nebraska (+story links)

From a Hail Mary to a 99-yard scoring drive in a 17-point quarter, Saturday's contest had plenty of memorable moments for BYU as the Cougars knocked off Nebraska 33-28 at Memorial Stadium.

Freshman quarterback Tanner Mangum finished off the rally for BYU, throwing to 6-foot-6 wide receiver Mitch Mathews at the front of the end zone as time expired. Mathews hauled in the pass and crossed the goal line, lifting the Cougars to the season-opening win.

Mangum entered the game replacing starter Taysom Hill, who left the contest twice and was lost for the season with a Lisfranc injury. The freshman threw for 111 yards, including a crucial 38-yard pass to Nick Kurtz on a fourth and 1 that set up a field goal, and the BYU offense rolled up 511 total yards in the win.
