NebraskaNebraska continued its winning ways against the Big 12 North today beating the Colorado Buffaloes 37-14.  In a game full of trick plays, Zac Taylor, Brandon Jackson, and the Husker defense controlled the pace in the first half and then exploded in the second half to pull away for the win.

One player that really stood out today was Barry Turner.  Turner caught a touchdown on a fake field goal in first quarter when backup quarterback Joe Ganz hit him for the td.  Later on in the game, Turned hustled on punt coverage and was able to keep the ball from going into the endzone and the Huskers downed it at the one.  The following play the Huskers got a saftey and it really turned the game around.

Zac Taylor completed 18-of-29 passes for 249 yards and two scores, tying Tommie Frazier’s school record for career touchdown passes with 43, while breaking his single-season record for passing yards for the second straight year. Taylor, who has thrown for at least 200 yards in each of the past five games, has thrown for 2,789 yards in 2006, breaking his previous NU record of 2,653 in 2005.

Brandon Jackson finished with 190 all-purpose yards and a pair of scores. He totaled a career-high 34 carries for 142 yards and a score en route to his fourth 100-yard rushing day of the season. Jackson, who became only the second CU opponent to reach the century mark this season, also caught a career-high six passes for 48 yards, becoming the second Husker in school history to record 40 all-purpose attempts in a game.

The blackshirt defense played a pretty good game overall.  There were still missed tackles by the secondary which is something to worry about for the next two games.  Shanle and Jones appear to be afraid to hit anyone.  Shanle loves to leg tackle, and Jones prefers to sit back and let the receiver come to him rather then run at them and make a tackle.  The d-line and linebackers played a pretty good game overall.

Next up is the Big 12 Championship (buy tickets) on Dec 2nd in Kansas City.  Nebraska will either face Texas or Oklahoma.  It all comes down to who wins in the Oklahoma / Oklahoma State game tomorrow.  OU wins, it is Nebraska/OU.  If Oklahoma loses. then the Huskers will face the Longhorns for the second time this season.
