Nebraska vs Kansas Game RecapThe Nebraska Cornhuskers picked up a huge win Saturday afternoon over the visiting Kansas Jayhawks. The Huskers got great performances from Ndamukong Suh and Roy Helu Jr. as they came away with a 45-35 win and improved to 6-4 on the season. Suh and 12 tackles and 2.5 sacks while Helu Jr. ran the ball for 115 yards and two touchdowns. Suh also got a touchdown pass from Joe Ganz when he lined up as fullback late in the game.

The win was Nebraska’s 20th straight victory over Kansas at Memorial Stadium dating back to 1968.  The win also gave the Husker’s their much needed sixth with of the season to make them bowl eligible.

Husker quarterback Joe Ganz completed 28-of-37 passes for 324 yards and three touchdowns. It was the fourth time in the last five games that Ganz has thrown for over 300 yards. He did have one interception and was sacked twice as well. Overall it was a pretty good game for Ganz, he just needs to work on getting rid of the ball a little quicker to avoid the sacks. Chris Brooks, Nate Swift, and Suh all caught touchdown passes from Ganz. It was Brook’s and Suh’s first touchdown receptions of their careers

Mike McNeill also caught a touchdown pass from Marlon Lucky. Lucky was lined up in the Joker formation and faked a run up the middle and then did a “Tim Tebow like” pass to McNeill who was wide open in the middle of the endzone.

I was very surprised with how well the defensive line played in the game. Suh was a beast all game long, while Zach Potter and Pierre Allen both played well as well. They kept pressure on Todd Reesing all day. Reesing was still able to pass for three touchdowns and 304 yards but you can’t really blame the d-line for those yards.

The defensive backs still need a lot of work as they did give up some big plays and missed some tackles. The missed tackles and terrible angles are hurting the defense in every game and I doubt we see anything different this season. Problems in the secondary are just something that everyone is going to have to get used to for the remainder of the season in my opinion.

Right now look for the Huskers to possibly be playing in the Sun Bowl. Sun Bowl officials were in Lincoln for the game and they would love to have the Huskers. The Sun Bowl committee is also honoring Tom Osborne this year by electing him into the Sun Bowl Hall Of Fame so they will really be pushing to have the Huskers in the game.

Up next for the Huskers will be a road game against the Kansas State Wildcats. The game is once again on pay per view and will start at 2:30 CST. Time to break out the credit card one more time Husker fans.
