ESPN followed BYU quarterback Tanner Mangum around campus Monday, filming its "Campus Hero" segment after the freshman - an Eagle High grad - threw a Hail Mary to beat Nebraska on Saturday.
"It’s been pretty crazy these past couple days, it’s definitely been a whirlwind," Mangum said.
The two-minute segment first aired on SportsCenter at 4 p.m. It is expected to re-air throughout the night on ESPN2 (5 to 6:15 p.m.) and ESPN (9, 10, 11, midnight). He is seen being stopped by fans and students on his stroll around the Provo campus.
"It’s fun seeing everyone get so excited about it, because it motivates us," Mangum said.

In the piece, he said his mom didn't see the pass because they were in Pocatello watching his older brother, Madison, play for Idaho State against Black Hills State. Madison had three touchdowns in that game, including a catch that earned him the No. 2 spot on SportsCenter's Top 10 on Saturday, one spot behind Tanner. He also said his family was watching the BYU game on their phones, until that final drive.
"About 50 seconds to go, their phone dies … they didn’t see it," he said.
BYU hosts Boise State at 8:15 p.m. Saturday, and Idaho State hosts Portland State at 4:05 p.m. Saturday. The Vikings won at Washington State last week.
