WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – It looked bad, and then it looked worse and then it looked really good. Nebraska fell behind 24-12 to a 3-4 Purdue team on the road but a touchdown pass from quarterback Tanner Lee to wideout Stanley Morgan Jr. with 14 seconds left in the game sealed a 25-24 win.
In keeping with the "bad, bad, good" theme, here are the top tweets from a strange night in Indiana.
Nebraska opened with a field goal, so we’ll open with this gem.

Tailback Tre Bryant was watching from home after season-ending surgery. He did not like what saw.
Finally, after so much negative, the positive came. Stanley Morgan Jr. with the walk-off (sort of).

Derek is a newbie on the Hail Varsity staff covering Husker athletics. In college, he was best known as ‘that guy from Twitter.’ He has covered a Sugar Bowl, a tennis national championship and almost everything in between (except an NCAA men’s basketball tournament game… *tears*). In his spare time, he can be found arguing with literally anyone about sports.
