Nebraska vs BaylorFirst off I’d like to apologize for not having the update done over the weekend. I had quite a bit of family and friends staying at our house all weekend and I wasn’t able to sit down and watch the game like I usually do. So this update won’t be in as much detail but that’s alright for this update.

Well the first half was pretty ugly for the Huskers as they could not stop Robert Griffin. Griffin the speedy Baylor quarterback ran for 121 yards on 16 carries and scored on a 47 yard touchdown in the second quarter. The play was on a 3rd and 1 but Griffin broke to the outside rather then sneaking up the middle where the Huskers jammed the line of scrimmage. No one was outside and Griffin was off to the endzone.

In the second half however the Huskers defense stiffened up and kept the Bears out of the endzone while the offense came from behind. Ryan Hill caught his first touchdown as a Husker in the first quarter that put the Huskers up 6-0.  Marlon Lucky would also add a touchdown reception while Alex Henery added a 27 yard field goal in the first half.

Trailing 20-17 at halftime, the Huskers got on the scoreboard on a nine yard touchdown reception by Nate Swift. Swift would also add a 53 yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Swift was the big man of the game as he caught 11 balls for 121 yards and two touchdowns while breaking Johnny Rodgers receptions in a career record.

Quarterback Joe Ganz was pretty good he completed 32 of 46 passes and threw for 336 yards and three touchdowns. There was times once again where he needed to get rid of the ball after pump faking a couple of times and then was sacked but overall he had a pretty good game.

Not the Huskers will head down to Norman, Oklahoma this Saturday to take on the Sooners. The game will be on at primetime and be televised on ESPN. It will be interesting to see how well the Huskers play down in Normal. I think the Sooners are just to tough and playing at home in primetime will be another factor against the Huskers in the game.

The team more then likely will be without linebacker Phillip Dillard and wide receivers Menelik Holt who were both injured during the Baylor game. Coach Pelini said that they would both be questionable at best for the game this weekend.

  1. Tom Christensen Says:

    The only thing that stopped Baylors QB was his Ankle injury. If not for that the Huskers would have had more problems winning this one. But that goes to show, you cannot win a game with only one player.

  2. Cliff Says:

    Tom that is correct. Griffin would have gave Nebraska a lot more trouble in the game. The Huskers should have done a better job by “spying” on Griffin the entire time to make him beat them by throwing the ball.

    It was a win however, and we will take it.
