Some of the ups and downs may be too much for some to handle. Some college football fans hope and pray for an undefeated season for their team that features a blowout shutout in every game.

During the 2013 season, the Nebraska Cornhusker football team has certainly experienced the entire gamut of what can happen to a college football team.

The fans love the thrills, but it may be the heartbreaking moments that show who the true fans are. Here is a quick look at some of the amazing scenarios that coach Bo Pelini and his Huskers football team have seen this season.
The Huskers gave away the game to the UCLA Bruins in Lincoln in the second half.
The Last-Second Win

Yes, it is in the same contest against the Northwestern Wildcats where Huskers fans saw the play that will be talked about for at least the next 50 years. Ron Kellogg III threw the bomb and Jordan Westerkamp was on the receiving end.
Jaw-Dropping Road Loss
The Huskers dropped a road game to the Minnesota Golden Gophers, who were without their head coach Jerry Kill.
The End of an Era

The Husker fans were made privy to a recorded rant by their head football coach Bo Pelini following a loss to UCLA. The rant was previously recorded, but Pelini attacked fans and local media. Legendary Huskers quarterback Tommy Frazier did not take kindly to the coach's comments.
Thrilling Road Victory
