Keith Duncan is a golden god.
We loved him long before this game, of course. We loved him after he hit the game-winning kick to beat Michigan three years ago. We loved him after he hit the (eventual) game-winning kick to beat Iowa State this year. We loved him even more as he proved to be the lone consistent weapon on Iowa's offense this season. Could we love him even more?
YES. YES, WE CAN.
Because Keith Duncan beat Nebraska on a last-second 48-yard kick that he drilled down the pipes. And then he trolled the Nebraska sideline by blowing kisses and wagging his finger.

And a few more angles:
KEITH DUNCAN FOREVER.
GIVE THIS MAN THE LOU GROZA AWARD.
GIVE IT TO HIM RIGHT NOW.
Here's what the hero of the day himself had to say after his game-winner:
We'll have a full recap along shortly, but in the meantime, we're going to keep watching this on a loop and cackling. The inept offense, the putrid playcalling, the tired defense, the horseshit officiating... none of that mattered in the end. Because we had Keith Duncan.
GO KEITH AWESOME.
