The Scoring Explosion

The Huskers win a closly contested game late 32 to 28 over the Michigan Wolverines. This game had everything, lead changes, hard hits, trick plays and a fluke ending. The Huskers weren't going to lose this game. Everytime they were down, they kept fighting back and refused to quit. QB Zac Taylor has been an inspiration to the whole team, not just during this game, but for the whole year with the toughness he displays each game. Sending the seniors off with an Alamo Bowl win is truly a feel good story. RB Cory Ross had a great game and season and is a special player that will be missed next year. Thank you Cory for all you've done..... GAME STATS

The Huskers celebrate after a 30 to 3 victory over the Buffs.

The t-shirts the Huskers were wearing under their pads says it all "Restore the Order." It all came together in this game as the Huskers dismantled the Buffs 30 to 3. For the first time in the Callahan era, Husker fans were given a glimpse of what's in store for the future of Nebraska football. The future looks bright!..... FULL STORY

The Huskers celebrate after a 30 to 3 victory over the Buffs.

The Huskers played the Kansas State Wildcats this weekend in what most would say was the Huskers' best chance to become Bowl eligible. In a closely contested game, the Huskers edged out the Wildcats 27 to 25 in one of the most up and down games I have seen in years. This game had everything: fumbles, interceptions, blocked kicks, safeties, plays under review and just when it looked like one team was going to take control, something happened..... FULL STORY

Callahan quickly burned Harrison Beck's redshirt and the Huskers end up winning the game. Was it worth it?

When I first saw the score Jayhawks 40 and the Huskers 15, I thought it might be a basketball score. Then I realized that basketball season hasn't started yet. This was the first time in 36 years the Jayhawks have beaten the Huskers. Callahan will feel the pressure after this loss. The Huskers must win against the Kansas State Wildcats if they have hopes of making a Bowl Game...... GAME STATS

The Huskers lose to the Jayhawks for the first time since 1968.

The Huskers lose the third game of the last three they have played. In all three loses the opponent has jumped on the Blackshirts early and this game was no different. The Sooners drove the ball down the field on their first drive that ended with a RB Adrian Peterson 36 yard touchdown run. From that point on, the Huskers were playing catch up and made a good effort but came up short losing 24 to 31....... FULL STORY

The Blackshirts record another sacks bringing this year's total to 39.

I can't believe what I saw last Saturday as the Huskers fell to the Tigers 24 to 41. It's pretty much common knowledge that the strength of the Blackshirts defense is its line play. The penetration and pressure that the defensive line has been able to put on the opposing offenses has protected a very average at best defensive secondary. So instead of going with our strength on defense to attack the Tigers, we put the game into the hands of our secondary....... FULL STORY

QB Brad Smith led the Tigers in rushing with a staggering 246 yards on the ground scoring 3 touchdowns.

The Huskers traveled to Waco, Texas to take on the Baylor Bears in the first road test of the year. The Baylor Bears brought an impressive 4 - 1 record to the game with a quality win over Iowa State 23 - 3 and an overtime loss to Texas A&M accounting for their only loss. The Huskers are coming to Waco after losing a close game to Texas Tech and are looking to improve their record with a road win....... FULL STORY

The Blackshirts added 4 more sacks bringing this year's total to 34.

Wow! What a well played game by both teams. Now, how many of you were sitting on your couch in the second quarter when Texas Tech went up by 21 points thinking to yourself here we go again. The thought of last year's beating by Texas Tech started to creep into my head. But what my eyes saw for the next two and a half quarters was something I can't ever remember seeing from my beloved Husker team. Not only did the Huskers come back from that deficit, but they had the lead and a chance to win the game....... FULL STORY

Huskers fight back from a 21 point deficit only to lose late to Texas Tech
34 to 31.

The Huskers defeat the Cyclones in a thriller 27 to 20 in double overtime. RB Cory Ross is still the Huskers' most explosive weapon even in the passing game. The Blackshirts turn in another solid performance sealing the fate of the Cyclones in overtime...... FULL STORY

RB Cory Ross (#4) scored all 3 of the Huskers' touchdowns, 1 rushing and 2 receiving.

The Huskers have been winning with defense, but this week special teams had to pitch in. With only seconds left in the game LB Adam Ickes blocks a 46 yard field goal attempt to hold off the Panthers 7 to 6. This was the second field goal blocked for the day. DE Zack Potter also blocked Kicker Josh Cummings 42 yard field goal attempt earlier in the game...... FULL STORY

LB Adam Ickes (#49) blocks a 46 yard field goal attempt to save a 7 to 6 victory over the Panthers.

The Blackshirts are back with their second game of total dominance. The Blackshirts accounted for 3 touchdowns on the way to a 31 to 3 victory over Wake Forest. For the first time this year, the Husker offense showed some signs of life in the second half of the game....... FULL STORY

Daniel Bullocks scored 1 of 3 defensive touchdowns for the Blackshirts with a 30 yard fumble return.

The entire Husker Nation was eagerly awaiting the debut of QB Zac Taylor and the Husker offense, but it was Bo Ruud and the Husker defense that stole the show. The Huskers had never lost to a division I-AA team and the Husker defense made sure that that record would still be intact. The Huskers tamed the Maine Bears 25 to 7...... FULL STORY

Bo Ruud recorded 5 tackles and half of a sack, but more impressive was the 27 yard interception for a touchdown to put the game away.

QB Zac Taylor made a big impression on the 63000 fans in Memorial Stadium last Saturday. Taylor threw for 357 yards completing 20 of 27 passes while connecting on 3 touchdowns all in the first half. Taylor's Spring Game record throwing performance helped lead the white team to a 42 to 14 victory over the red team. WR Terrence Nunn also had a big afternoon catching 4 passes for 133 yards and 2 touchdowns........ COMPLETE GAME COVERAGE

Zac Taylor laid claim to the starting QB job with a record breaking performance in the Spring Game.

The 2005 recruiting class has the potential to be the Huskers' best ever. Coach Bill Callahan and his staff have put together what most recruiting publications consider a top 5 recruiting class. This was a team effort that started early in 2004 and gathered momentum as the season went on despite a poor record and no Bowl appearance. Coach Callahan's aggressive approach to recruiting and great efforts from coaches like John Blake and Jay Norvell helped the Huskers pursue and land some of the nation's top recruits....... 2005 RECRUITING CLASS

Callahan refuses to settle for nothing less than the best players to fill the Huskers' 2005 recruiting class.
