When Riley first reported that Trey Foster had an ankle injury, it sounded doubtful that the Nebraska tight end would be ready by Saturday.
The junior not only made it back, but caught his first career touchdown on a 9-yard pass from Tommy Armstrong that gave the Huskers their 28-24 lead in the third quarter against BYU.
“We called the play,” Foster said, “and I knew it was made for me, and I was like, ‘Oh, geez, here’s the defining moment. I’m not worried about this ankle right now. I’m just going to make sure I make this play.’ And Tommy put the ball perfect for me and put it on me and I made the play.”
Foster had tweaked the ankle earlier in the game, and again was in a walking boot afterward.
