With bowl eligibility on the line, Nebraska erased a 14-point deficit at home against No. 17 Iowa on Friday, but a field goal in the final seconds by Iowa’s Keith Duncan dashed the Cornhuskers’ postseason hopes. Duncan, who hit a 49-yarder earlier in the game, drilled a 48-yard game-winner with just one second remaining on the clock – after being iced by Nebraska coach Scott Frost – to seal the Hawkeyes’ ninth win of the season.

In a savage move, Duncan celebrated his kick by wagging his finger at the Nebraska bench, Dikembe Mutombo style, and then blowing his opponents a kiss.

According the Des Moines Register’s Chad Leistikow, Duncan was informed that he will become a scholarship athlete after the game.
