Nebraska senior Mike Peltz gave a great speech before the Cornhuskers’ Senior Night game against Wisconsin, but it wasn't his pep talk that got the packed Pinnacle Bank Arena crowd cheering.
The reserve guard told the fans in attendance that there would be no sitting or kneeling for the duration of the game, but he was going to make one exception — to kneel down and propose to his girlfriend.
The best part is when the crowd, and then his girlfriend, figure out what’s happening and the place erupts.
Nebraska head coach Tim Miles must have figured that the seldom-used Peltz already had enough court action because he kept him on the bench all game during the Cornhuskers' 77-68 upset of #9 Wisconsin.
