Colorado Game


Interim AD Tom Osborne hires LSU defense coordinator Bo Pelini as Nebraska's 28th head coach. Bo Pelini is a fan favorite and will hit the ground running as he plans to begin the job of restoring the Huskers back to prominence....... PELINI PRESS CONFERENCE

In what seemed to be a foregone conclusion, Interim AD Tom Osborne fired head coach Bill Callahan after a 51 to 65 loss to Colorado....... OSBORNE PRESS CONFERENCE

The 51 to 65 beating delivered by the Colorado Buffalos was a microcosm of how the season went this year for Callahan and the Huskers. Just like the rest of the year, the Husker defense was unable to stop anything the Buffalos tried. Like most games, the halftime adjustments were not effective as the Huskers surrendered a 35 to 24 halftime lead allowing the Buffalos to score 5 unanswered touchdowns in the second half. This has been a long season for the Husker Nation and a bowl game would make it even longer. The sooner the season is over the sooner the Huskers can start the rebuilding process. This should begin Saturday at 10:30am (EST) with the press conference Tom Osborn will having on ESPN News......

If a picture is worth a thousand words, this should spell the end for the coaching sensation of Callahan and Cosgrove.

The Husker Pride allowed the team to send the seniors out on Senior Day in a big way. For the second week in a row, the Huskers were involved in a blowout in which one team scored more than 70 points. This week the Huskers were on the giving end to the cheers of a sold out crowd in Lincoln. QB Joe Ganz had another record setting day in only his second start as he threw for 510 yards completing 30 of 40 passing for 7 touchdowns and no interceptions. This win won't be enough to save Callahan's job, but is a sign of how good the offense could be next year with Joe Ganz at quarterback. The Huskers still have a chance to salvage something out of this season as they travel to Colorado the day after Thanksgiving to take on the Buffaloes. A win next week would bring the Huskers back to 500 going 6 and 6 on the year and make them bowl eligible.......

Senior DB Cortney Grixby returned a kickoff 94 yards for a touchdown against K-State to start the scoring explosion this Saturday in Lincoln.

The Huskers travel to Lawrence and get blown out 76 to 39 by the 8th ranked Kansas Jayhawks. This is the most points a Husker defense has EVER given up. This is the worst Huskers' defense ever, this very well could be the worst season ever and is definitely the worst job ever coaching a defense at Nebraska. The Husker defense gave up 10 consecutive touchdowns in a row. The offense scored 39 points, which is better than most may have expected starting a second string quarterback. It's just a matter of time before the coaching staff is blown out of Lincoln and the Huskers can start to rebuild the program. Only 2 games left this year and they can't come soon enough. Next week we are on the road again as we take on Kansas State......

Running Back Marlon Lucky catches a swing pass that goes for 62-yards and a touchdown in one of only a few highlights for the Huskers.

For the first time this year, we saw a glimpse of the Blackshirts as they hit and pressured Texas' quarterback, Colt McCoy, all day holding the Longhorns to just 3 field goals after 3 quarters. The Blackshirts had no answer for Texas' running back, Jamaal Charles, who rushed for 216 yards and 3 touchdowns in the fourth quarter as the Longhorns came back from being down by 14 points to win 28 to 25. The Huskers' offense at times show signs of establishing a running game and Husker wide receiver Nate Swift was open all day, catching 6 passes for 112 yards and 2 touchdowns. This is the second year in a row that Callahan has let the Longhorns come back in the fourth quarter to steal the game. This should be the final nail in his coffin. It doesn't get any easier for the Huskers as they travel to Lawrence Kansas to take on the 8 and 0 Jayhawks.......

Wide Receiver Nate Swift's 112 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns weren't enough as the Huskers fall 25 - 28 to the Longhorns in Austin.

Earlier this week the drab white tunnel walls were replaced by a fresh coat of red paint and pictures of serious young men who became All-Americans. The tunnel walk was turned back to years past as they used the old music with famous clips that showed some of the pride and tradition that made the Nebraska program great. Tom Osborne was warmly welcomed back to Memorial Stadium as he took in the game from the sideline. That was all that seemed to change for the Huskers on Saturday as Texas A&M easily handled the Huskers 36 to 14 shutting them out in the second half. This is the first time Nebraska has lost three home games since 1968. It doesn't look like it's going to get any better soon as the Huskers travel to Austin to take on the Longhorns......

Huskers' Kevin Dixon (97) blocks a Texas A&M extra point in first quarter action in what would be one of only a few highlights for the Huskers.

One day after Nebraska athletics director Steve Pederson was fired, Chancellor Harvey Perlman appointed Osborne as the Huskers' interim AD. Any notion that Osborne was taking the reins simply to unify a divided fan base subsided when he began talking about re-establishing the tradition and culture of the football program. With Nebraska's football team stumbling to a 4-3 start, there could be some hard times ahead. At the end of the season, Osborne will be tasked with determining the future of fourth-year coach Bill Callahan and his staff. Despite the fact that Callahan's contract was recently extended through January 2012, Osborne said finances wouldn't play much of a factor in his evaluation of the coaching staff.....

Tom Osborne replaces Steve Pederson - fired Monday by University of Nebraska Chancellor Harvey Perlman - with the hope of uniting a state that Pederson first divided over his firing of Frank Solich in 2003.

For the second week in a row, the Huskers were unable to do anything on defense or offense as they fell to Oklahoma State 45 to 14 at home. Damage control has started even though it's painfully obvious that the Blackshirts do not believe in the defensive scheme. The Cowboys scored the first 7 times they had the ball making the halftime score 38 to 0. Most Huskers fans left at halftime and this could be the beginning of the end for Callahan and his staff. Remember, we fired Frank Solich after a 10 and 3 season. The Huskers will not be favored to win any of their 5 remaining games, which makes having a winning season or even becoming Bowl eligible very unlikely. Can Callahan turn the tide and right this ship for his sake? I hope so....

The Blackshirts gave up more that 550 yards on defense and 45 points as the Huskers get pounded by the Oklahoma State Cowboys in Lincoln.

The Huskers were no match for the number 17 ranked Missouri Tigers as they fell 41 to 6 in a game that the Huskers were dominated in every aspect of the game. It was painfully apparent that the Blackshirt defense doesn't believe in the scheme and that coach Kevin Cosgrove is not the coach for this job. This will be the second time in the last few years where the Blackshirts have performed like the worst defense in the big 12 or even the country. His inability to manufacture any kind of pass rush this season has made the Blackshirts totally ineffective. The Huskers played a prevent defense against Chase Daniels by only rushing 3 most of the game. Chase sat back and picked the Blackshirts apart for more than 400 yards passing and 2 passing touchdowns. Cosgrove's inability to make adjustments and put together a competitive game plan could spell the end for him. The Huskers have little room for error if they are to correct this ship. Oklahoma State visits Lincoln next Saturday. Let's see if the Huskers are able to rebound at home.

The No. 25 Huskers football team were unable to stop MU quarterback Chase Daniels and the Missouri offense in a 41-6 loss to the No. 17 Tigers.

The Blackshirts rebounded nicely this week and are starting to show signs of improvement. After spotting the Cyclones 10 points, the Huskers scored 28 unanswered points on the way to a 35 to 17 victory. Sam Keller seems to improve each game, completing 18 of 28 passes for 219 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Husker receivers dropped a number of passes or his stats would even be better. For the second game in a row, Bo Ruud returned an interception for a touchdown late in the second half. This time it was for 93 yards, which helped put a stake in the hearts of the Cyclones. Cortney Grixby played the game of his life, returning kicks and making two interceptions of his own. The Huskers travel to Missouri next week to take on a good Tiger Team.

Nebraska's Bo Ruud returns a third quarter interception 93 yards for a touchdown.

Early in the 4th quarter the Huskers found themselves behind by 9 points to Ball State. The Blackshirts were pushed around all day until a Bo Rudd 34 yard interception for a touchdown sparked a 4th quarter comeback. With the defensive struggles continuing for the second week in a row, the Blackshirts allowed 610 total yards of offense to Ball State. Quarterback Sam Keller continues to improve with every game completing 29 of 37 passes for 438 yards and 3 touchdowns, including the game winner 11 yard touchdown pass to Maurice Purify. Ball State tried a 55 yard field goal with 17 seconds left that sailed wide left as the Huskers escape at home with a 41 to 40 win.

Quarterback Sam Keller completed 29 of 37 passes for 438 yards, 3 touchdowns and 1 interception as the Huskers escape with a 41 to 40 win.

It was very evident from USC's opening drive that the Huskers were no match for the Trojan's rushing game. USC scored on their first drive going 96 yards in 5 plays, which included runs of 50 and 40 yards. The Huskers' passing game looked good with Sam Keller completing 36 of 54 passes for 389 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Huskers' rushing attack was only able to manage 31 net rushing yards for the game. The Blackshirts were unable to stop the USC's rushing attack, giving up 313 yards and 5 touchdowns on the ground. The Huskers have to put this loss behind them and get ready for Ball State and the Big 12 Conference.

Zackary Bowman and Armando Murillo celebrate Bowman's interception in the end zone in the fourth quarter of their 20-17 win over Wake Forest

The Huskers survive and hang on to win a closely contested game against Wake Forest 20 to 17. The Blackshirt defense only allowed 7 points in the second half and zero points in the fourth quarter. Zack Bowman made a key interception in the end zone late in the fourth quarter to secure the Husker victory. The Husker passing attack was less than impressive with poor decisions from Sam Keller and too many dropped passes from the Husker receivers. USC travels to Lincoln next weekend in what will be the Huskers' biggest test to date. The Huskers must play better on both sides of the ball if they hope to defeat USC.

QB Sam Keller's much anticipated season debut didn't go off without a hitch. After Keller threw an interception that was returned 80 yards for a score in the first half, he seemed to calm down and played a solid game. RB Marlon Lucky was the star of the game, rushing for 235 yards and scoring 4 touchdowns. The Huskers also introduced Freshman bruiser running back Castille Quentin who rushed for 78 yards and 2 touchdowns as the Huskers topped Nevada 52 to 10.

The Huskers lost the Cotton Bowl to the Auburn Tigers in a game that the Huskers clearly dominated. The Blackshirts held the Tigers to less than two yards per rush and only allowed 3 points on the only real drive the Tigers were able to put together all day. The other 2 touchdowns came off of Huskers' turnovers leaving the Tigers in great field position. The Tigers only had to drive 23 yards total for both of their touchdowns. The Huskers let this game get away and fell 14-17 to the Auburn Tigers...... GAME STATS..... GAME HIGHLIGHTS

Brandon Jackson scored the Huskers' only rushing TD on a 20 yard run.
