A little Nebraska boy battling brain cancer had his dream come true this weekend, scoring a touchdown in his first college football game.

Seven-year-old Jack Hoffman ran in a 69-yard touchdown in front of 60,000 screaming fans at the University of Nebraska spring game.

Hoffman was given the opportunity to play for the Huskers during the game.

Jack's moment was something he'll never forget, but it's also one that will go into the record books. He was Nebraska's leading rusher for the day.

If you haven't seen the touchdown yet, it's posted on YouTube.
