Go Big Read: Boaz Joseph and More Nebraska Football News

Nebraska football defensive back Boaz Joseph attended Nebrasketball’s recent tussle with Wisconsin. He almost had a…*ahem*…moment in front of head coach Mike Riley.

Nebraska basketball’s thrilling game (yet, of course, eventual gut-punch loss) against Wisconsin had many memorable moments. As the Huskers ran up the court to sink a clutch three-pointer, Husker cornerback Boaz Joseph had his phone out to capture the majesty and he was most certainly impressed.

One has to wonder if he was well aware that he was not only sitting in front of his mellow, well-tempered head coach and the love of his life as he stifled a very understandable audible exclamation.

It’s okay, Boaz. I’m sure coach has heard much worse.
