Nebraska Wins Week With Kid Touchdown

Videos by OutKick

It has been a rough week for college athletics.

What with the Rutgers scandal and the continuing unveiling of the mess that was Auburn athletics, there wasn’t much uplifting news.

Until, that is, Nebraska called in seven year old cancer patient Jack Hoffman.

And ran a play for him in the Cornhusker spring game.

Good luck keeping dry eyes on this one.

Even a gay muslim might have teared up a bit.

Florida thought about running this play at last year’s spring game.

But Matt Elam would have tackled the cancer patient.
