Good morning Husker fans! Wow what a game last night down in San Diego for the Nebraska Cornhuskers as they dominated the Pac 10 Arizona Wildcats 33-0. The Blackshirts set the tone early and after that Arizona had no idea what to do on either side of the ball. The Huskers offense broke out the wildcat formation and Zac Lee and Niles Paul hooked up on their longest play of the year as the Huskers picked up theit 10th win of the season in the blowout victory.

I’ll start off talking about the offense. Wow, where the heck did this offense come from? Besides having to settle for a couple of short field goals and a couple boneheaded penalties on the offensive line the offenese played one of the best games on the year.

Rex Burkhead running the Wildcat? Lee hitting Paul for a 74-yard touchdown? Paul picking up big yards on a wide receiver reverse? It sure left many Husker fans wondering if Shawn Watson was actually calling plays!  Lee finished the game 13 of 23 for 173 yards and one touchdown. Paul was the main receiver with four catches that he hauled in for 123 yards. On the ground it was all about true freshman Burkhead. Rex was a man Wednesday night as he carried the ball 17 times for 89 yards. We can’t forget about Lee who carried the ball 18 times for 65 yards as well.

On the defensive side of the ball it was all about the “Blackshirt Swagger”. The blackshirts set the tone from the beginning of the game as they put pressure on the Wildcats the first two plays of the game and then caused a interception on third and long. Matt O’hanlon picked off the Wildcat pass and soon after that it was Lee running it in for the touchdown.

All night long the Blackshirts were all over the wildcats. They completely dominated the game. Arizona set Holiday Bowl records with six first downs, 109 yards of offense, 51 offensive plays and nine punts. The Wildcats didn’t get into Nebraska territory until the first drive of the third quarter. That is what I call DOMINATION!

Alex Henery was his usual self as he kicked four field goals and also pinned the Wildcats deep on a couple of punts. Way to represent your own Blackshirt Alex!

Things are looking up and up for the Nebraska football program. Look ahead to the schedule next year and what the team has coming back and you can see why the ESPN announcers last night were talking about the Huskers being a preseason top 10 team.

It’s a great time to be a Husker fan!

    Where was that Zac Lee at all year long. I was there and it was great. Qualcom isn’t the best but the blowout was. Bo was all class in the 4th quarter, we could have scored 3 more times. Nice way to end it.

    I’m impressed with the Husker fan base. They have taken over a sports forum that I belong to ( http://www.sportshoopla.com ) like a snowstorm. The other fans were stunned. Glad to see fans so dedicated to their team.
