NebraskaIn a game where most Huskers fans were left asking, “Where has this team been all year?”, the Nebraska Cornhuskers played their best overall game of the season as they lost to Texas 28-25.  The Huskers had a lead heading into the 4th quarter, but that is when Jamaal Charles took over the game.

Charles ran for a career high 290 yards in the game.  216 of the 290 yards came in the 4th quarter on long runs of 25, 40, and 86 yards.  With the Nebraska defense blitzing almost every play, all it took was Charles getting past the line and he was gone.

I liked how the defense went out and played balls out the entire game.  Sure they were getting tired at the end, but it was nice to see pressure on the quarterback, and players flying around all over the field.  They coaching staff told the players, go out there and play for yourself and make some plays and that is exactly what they did.

Marlon Lucky rushed for 111 yards on 24 carries to lead the rushing attack for the Huskers.  Sam Keller finished the day 23 for 35 and 298 yards along with two touchdowns to Nate Swift.  Keller was injured late in the 4th quarter however with a possibly broken collarbone.  Joe Ganz came in and passed for a touchdown and 2 point conversion to bring the Huskers within three points, but the onside kick was recovered by the Lonhorns to secure the victory.

I think we are all suprised with how well the Huskers played on Saturday.  Will the same type of team show up when the Huskers take on the Kansas Jayhawks on Saturday.  Can the Huskers give the Jayhawks their first loss on the season?  Lets hope so!

GO BIG RED

    Kathy….Ganz will have his opportunity Saturday. Sheridan’s Odds has Kansas 17.5 to win and Tamanaha has Kansas by 22.

    So, we’ll see how your horse runs.
