Nebraska's Turner Feels Like "New Man" After First Touchdown

All it took was one catch to change Jamal Turner's outlook.

Before he scored the game-winning touchdown with six seconds left against Michigan State last week, Turner had been worried about the direction of his football career at Nebraska.

He hadn't scored in his first 20 games. There were long stretches between catches. And he hadn't been able to erase memories of getting benched last year for poor practices.

Then with time running out and Nebraska trailing the Spartans, Taylor Martinez delivered a perfect pass to Turner in the corner of the end zone for a 28-24 victory.

He said the catch made him feel like a "new man" and a "way better wide receiver."

Turner is the 18th-ranked Cornhuskers' fifth-leading receiver heading into Saturday's game against Penn State.
