NebraskaThe Nebraska football team had no problems with the New Mexico State Aggies on Saturday night as the Huskers dominated to a 38-7 victory. It was the first game this season where the entire team played good and the game was never in question.

Marlon Lucky and Joe Ganz had a great game for the Huskers. Ganz was the third husker player to throw, run, and pass for a touchdown in one game. Ganz had a 33 yard touchdown run, a 35 yard touchdown pass to Mike McNeill, and also caught a touchdown pass from Lucky. Ganz finished the game 13 of 17 for 158 yards and one touchdown.

Lucky went over 2000 yards for his career as he finished the game with 108 yards on 15 carries and scored two touchdowns. Lucky had a career long 58 yards shortly into the third quarter that really helped out his stats.

Quentin Castille looked very good as he had 10 carries for 78 yards on the ground. Roy Helu Jr., added 35 yards, while fourth string back Marcus Mendoza showed off his speed and finished with 35 yards as well.

Mike McNeill had the highlight for the receiving corps when he scored on a 35 yard pass from Ganz in the third quarter. McNeill avoided a couple of tackles after catching the ball and then flipped into the endzone for the touchdown. McNeill was lucky that he did injure himself on the play as he almost landed on his head in the endzone.

The defenst played very well in the game as they almost had their first shutout of the year. The crowd was feeding off the defense and you could tell that the defense feeding off all that extra noise from the crowd. Armando Murillo and Matt O’hanlon both picked off Aggies passes to cause two tournovers. Zach Potter came up big in the game as well when he blocked a field goal attempt on the Aggiest first drive of the game.

Eric Hagg led the Huskers with 10 total tackles while Lance Thorell finished with eight. Thorell was a big suprise as he filled in for Anthony West who sat out the game due to injury.

It would not suprise me one bit if the defense is awarded the blackshirts before the upcoming game with Virginia Tech. I can see it happening next week a couple of days before the big game. The team is going to be jacked up for the big game and hopefully the crowd is loud and the Huskers can come away with the biggest win for the Huskers in quite a while.
