NebraskaNebraska didn’t start off on the right foot today against Iowa State but they finally got it going late in the first half and continued on in the second half.  After spotting Iowa State a 10-0 lead, the Huskers came back to win 35-17.

Running back Marlon Lucky passed and ran for touchdowns and Bo Ruud scored on an interception return for the second straight week for the big plays of the game.  We all figured we would see a trick play today and that we did when Lucky connected with Sean Hill for a 20 yard touchdown.  Ruud’s touchdown was a on pass breakup by Courtney Grixby, and that Ruud returned 93 yards for a pick six.

Nebraska quarterback Sam Keller was 18-for-28 for 219 yards, with one interception on the day.  Keller connected with Thomas Lawson twice for touchdowns.

Bo Ruud and Steve Octavien had big days for the Husker defense along with Grixby.  It was nice to see double digit tackles and tournovers for the defense.  That is something they haven’t been getting until today against Iowa State.

Nebraska is now 4-1 on the season and travel to a hostile stadium in one week for a night game against the Missouri Tigers.  This game could ultimately decide who wins the Big 12 North.  Well, we can now throw Colorado into that mix as they upset #3 rated Oklahoma today.


***We now know why Andre Jones did not get his name called on Saturady.  Jones was suspended for the game for internal disciplinary reasons.  Coach Callahan said that Jones would be back for the Missouri game this coming Saturday.***
