The second half, it was Broyles' turn. Out of the slot, Broyles broke loose on a wheel route past Hagg and, arms fully extended, reeled in Jones' pass 47 yards to the Husker 3, setting up a Jimmy Stevens field goal to re-tie the game, 20-20.
â€œThe receivers, they beat their guy that was covering them,â€ Jones said. â€œThey beat their man coverage.â€
But as clutch as Stills and Broyles were, Kenney was most clutch of all.
Facing third-and-24 in the fourth quarter, the Sooners seemed destined to give the ball back to Nebraska. But fighting off Amukamara, Kenney dashed across the middle of the field for a 23-yard gain.The next play, on fourth-and-1, Kenney beat Amukamara again, this time on a slant pass to give the Sooners a huge first-down conversion and keep the drive alive.
Two plays later, he shook loose from Amukamara again for another reception and another first down, setting up Stevens' game-winning 27-yard field goal.
â€œI've got to give it to the receivers,â€ Jones said. â€œThey got open.
â€œOur receivers were great.â€
