With their 7-0 lead over the Scarlet Knights in jeopardy, the Cornhuskers pulled off one of the craziest defensive plays you'll ever see.

Rutgers outfielder Mike Martinez hit a sharp ground ball that seemed destined to score two, but Nebraska pitcher Jake Meyers deflected the ball with his elbow directly to his second baseman, Jake Schleppenbach, leading to an inning-ending double play.

Take a look:

A tough break for Rutgers, but a remarkable play from Nebraska and one that proved to be a huge play in the game.
