Things haven't gone well for the Nebraska Cornhuskers this season.

Entering Saturday's game against Ohio State, Nebraska had a 2-6 record in head coach Scott Frost's first season at the helm. Things were looking up, however, for the Huskers early in Saturday's game, as they scored a touchdown to take a first-quarter lead.

Then... this from kicker Caleb Lightbourn.

The kick officially went a single yard, but an offsides penalty backed the Huskers up another 5 yards, so it was essentially a net of minus-4 yards on the kickoff for Nebraska.

Ohio State then went on to rally and win the game 36-31 to drop the Huskers to 2-7 this season.
