Video: Tanner Lubach's walk-off home run

Entering his 11th-inning at-bat late Saturday night, Tanner Lubach hadn’t gone deep since Nebraska’s season opener Feb. 15. The sophomore catcher put an end to his personal 46-game homer-less drought with a dramatic walk-off bomb that lifted the Huskers to the Big Ten tourney title game Sunday afternoon.

Lubach and the Huskers take on Big Ten regular-season champ Indiana for the second consecutive day at 1:05 p.m. ET on BTN/BTN2Go.

The home run was even more special because Saturday marked Lubach’s mother’s birthday. Can’t think of a much better present for a proud mother than an extra-inning walk-off homer on her birthday.

Laura Lubach sure looked happy hugging and congratulating her son following this postgame interview:
