Nebraska kicker slips and fails miserably while attempting an onside kick. Ohio state

Nebraska is hoping to win its third straight game – and third game overall – against 10 Ohio State in Columbus, Ohio on Saturday. The Cornhuskers entered as 17.5-point underdogs, so coach Scott Frost might as well pull all the tricks up his sleeve.

Maybe this one should have stayed in it.

The Cornhuskers went 75 yards for the touchdown on their first drive of the game, and wanted to get the ball right back. So why not try a surprise onside kick, right? Caleb Lightbourn tried and did not end well.

You have to admire the effort. After all, it's not like playing against the buckeyes is a good game plan. But maybe Lightbourn should be a little bit more.

Amazingly, though, that might not have been the worst play for the Huskers on the afternoon. Quarterback Adrian Martinez is a star in the making, but this decision on RPO is a freshman. The fumble was recovered by Ohio State.

Nebraska (2-6, 1-4 Big Ten) has been forced to make a purchase in Frost's first year at the helm, and Ohio State (7-1, 4-1) can not afford a loss if it wants to make the college football playoff.
