LINCOLN — By game's end, it was nowhere near 100 degrees on the floor of Memorial Stadium. The collars of Nebraska's football team were a lot hotter than that.
The Huskers were sweating — and wilting — late in the fourth quarter, watching a 16-point cushion against Wyoming dwindle to a field goal. And the Cowboys had one minute to go roughly 60 yards for a chance at tying the game.
