25 times Husker games were decided by a last-minute score since 2000

They've given you lifelong memories, permanent heartache, everlasting glee and eternal suffering. You've screamed for joy, shrieked in misery and dropped your jaw. You've shouted things you shouldn't, had thoughts you aren't proud of, and yeah, you probably deleted a few tweets, too.

No, we're not talking about Taylor Swift lyrics, we're talking about Husker football games decided in the last minute.

Nebraska's win over Northwestern on Saturday marked the 25th time since 2000 a score in overtime or the final minute of regulation decided the outcome of a Husker game.

In order to make the list, a game must be decided by a last-minute score. Sorry, 2007 Ball State and 2005 Pittsburgh, but failed game-winning kicks don't make the cut. Incomplete Hail Mary's and multi-lateral prayers don't, either.

Nebraska is 14-11 since 2000 in games decided by a last-minute score.
