LINCOLN — Nebraska trailed Iowa 17-10 in the third quarter when it faced a fourth-and-3 from its own 32. Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz had called time out to review whether NU quarterback Ron Kellogg had fumbled or thrown an incomplete pass on the previous play. He also inserted his defense for a “punt safe” return, guarding against a fake.
Husker coach Bo Pelini still dialed up a fake punt, with punter Sam Foltz running the ball. Foltz lost 8 yards. It was the second failed fake punt this year, following defensive tackle Brodrick Nickens' stumbling attempt in the UCLA game.
