The Huskers lost to the seventh ranked Red Raiders in Lincoln, Texas Tech escaping as defensive tackle Le Kevin Smith intercepted a Cody Hodges pass. If Smith had fallen to the ground, retaining possession, Nebraska would have needed to just run out the clock.
Smith fumbled the interception, however, Texas Tech recovering and scoring shoretly thereafter to give them the three point victory.
