except it wasn't a Hail Mary. The only deep WR was Young on a Post Route. They had a TO, 9 seconds, and what everyone presumed to be a decent kicker. They could have thrown the ball 20 yards shorter and set up a long field goal. Nevada was right to defend it as a normal play, but the safety should have PI'd him and took the 15 yards.
