The Huskers' offense gave the Clemson Tigers 2 touchdowns in the first half to make the score at halftime 14 - 3 Clemson. The Husker defense played well all game led by Ndamukong Suh with 8 tackles, 2 sacks and 1 blocked field goal. On the offensive side of the ball, Quentin Castille led the offense with 18 carries for 125 yards. The Gator Bowl MVP of the game was quarterback Joe Gantz who passed for 236 yards and 2 touchdowns and led the Huskers to a 26 - 21 Gator Bowl win over Clemson. This is Bo Pelini's 1st bowl win as Nebraska's head couch as he guided the Huskers to a 9 and 4 record. Bo Pelini's first season as head coach was a success and he has the team on its way back to the upper echelon of the Big 12 conference.
GAME STATS  .......   HIGHLIGHTS




After taking a sack on 3rd down with less than 2 minutes left in the game, things looked bleak for the Huskers trailing by 1 point to Colorado. Then Pelini turned to kicker Alex Henery and said, "What do you think, kid? Can you make a 57-yard field goal?" Henery replied "I made it in warm-ups". Henery made the field goal and the 85,000 people at the stadium could have been heard in Omaha it was so load. Henery made a school record 57 yard field goal to give the Huskers the lead late. The Huskers ended Colorado's chances for a bowl game with a 40 - 31 victory in a game most Husker fans soon won't forget. Now the Huskers wait to see what Bowl game they will be invited to, the Gator Bowl on New Years Day seems likely.
GAME STATS  .......   HIGHLIGHTS




The Huskers and Blackshirts rolled into Manhattan on Saturday as they tangled with the Wildcats of Kansas State. The Huskers spotted Kansas State 7 points early only to run away with the game 56 to 28. The story of the game was the Huskers' running attack and Joe Ganz. Ganz rushed for 95 yards on 11 carries for 2 touchdowns as well as passing for 270 yards and 2 more touchdowns. The Blackshirts were aggressive all game long and were constantly pressuring the quarterback. The Huskers still have one more game this season, the day after Thanksgiving in Lincoln against the Colorado Buffalos.
GAME STATS  .......   HIGHLIGHTS




The Huskers played a complete game Saturday as they revenged a 37 point loss last year with a 45 - 35 win at Memorial Stadium. Two players in particular, RB Roy Helu and DL Ndamukong Suh, were the two stars of the day. The team played well but the Defense was at time dominating so much so that they should receive their Blackshirts for the first time this week. This win also makes the Huskers bowl eligible moving them into second place in the Big 12 North. Next week the Huskers travel to Kansas State. Will the Blackshirts be making the trip?
GAME STATS  .......   HIGHLIGHTS




With national television cameras rolling, Nebraska was no match for the high power Sooner Offense. Oklahoma had four touchdowns and Nebraska had three turnovers before the game was 5 minutes old. Even in your worst nightmare, you wouldn't believe a game could start like this. It was the worst first quarter in Husker history. It was 35-0 after 15 minutes; the most points given up by a Husker team in one quarter. The Huskers go down 62 - 28 in a game every Husker fan soon wants to forget.
GAME STATS  .......   HIGHLIGHTS




This weekend wide receiver Nate Swift became the Husker's all time leader in receptions. The Huskers held off quarterback Robert Griffin to beat Baylor 32-20 Saturday and the team only needs one more win to become bowl eligible. Swift broke Johnny Rodgers' receiving record on the first of his two touchdowns. Swift, who had 121 yards in receptions, caught a career-high 11 passes in the game to increase his four-year total to 147 receptions. That's four more than Rodgers, the 1972 Heisman Trophy winner. The Huskers will need more record setting performances next weekend as they travel to Norman to take on the high flying Oklahoma Sooners.
GAME STATS  .......   HIGHLIGHTS




The Huskers get a win beating Iowa State this weekend 35 - 7. It reminded one of the past as the Huskers dominated on all sides of the ball. The offense used a balanced attack rushing for 220 yards while passing for 328 more. Joe Ganz was 27 of 37 passing with no interceptions and one touchdown through the air as well as one on the ground. The Husker defense only gave up 7 points while holding the Cyclones to 218 yards of total offense. The Huskers will face Baylor next weekend in Lincoln as they attempt to improve on their 4 and 3 record.
GAME STATS  .......   HIGHLIGHTS




QB Joe Ganz had one of his best games on the road against Texas Tech on Saturday. An overtime interception cost the Huskers the game 37 - 31. The Huskers seemed to find a running game and held on to the ball for 40:12 of the game. The Husker Defense, for 11 consecutive quarters, hasn't forced a sack or turnover. While the offense kept the Huskers in this game, the Defense must perform better and eliminate big plays against them if Nebraska is going to win a game in the Big 12. The Huskers are on the road again next week as they travel to Ames, Iowa to take on Iowa State.
GAME STATS  .......   HIGHLIGHTS




If it wasn't obvious in the Va Tech game last week, it became crystal clear in the Missouri game that the Huskers do not have the talent to compete with the upper echelon teams in the Big 12. The Huskers fall 52 - 17 to the Missouri Tigers in a game where the Huskers were dominated in every phase of the game. A coach can't change a team overnight. It is going to take a few years to work our way back to respectable. The only question is whether or not Husker Nation is willing to wait and for how long. The Huskers can expect to see more of the same next week as they travel to Lubbock to take on Texas Tech.
GAME STATS  .......   HIGHLIGHTS




The Huskers had to play from behind for most of the game as late penalties to Suh and then Bo Pelini ended a fourth quarter comeback as the Huskers lost to Virginia Tech 35 - 30. The Huskers showed signs of improvement both on Offense and Defense, but still suffer from inconsistency when it comes to the running game and getting pressure on the quarterback. The Huskers must make major improvements if they expect to beat Missouri this weekend when the Tigers come to Lincoln Saturday night.
GAME STATS  .......   HIGHLIGHTS




The Husker offense started fast this weekend as they handled New Mexico St. 38 - 7 Saturday night in Lincoln under the lights. Both the passing game and running game looked good. RB Marlon Lucky rushed for 108 yards and 2 touchdowns. He even completed a pass to QB Joe Ganz for a 20 yard touchdown. Marvin Betts had a good game on defense, blocking a field goal and forcing a fumble as the Husker defense continues to improve from game to game. The Huskers have an extra week to prepare for Virginia Tech as they come to Lincoln on September 27 which will be the Huskers' biggest test to date.
GAME STATS  .......   HIGHLIGHTS




The Huskers were involved in a closely contested game in the first half with San Jose St. until an 85 yard kickoff return by Niles Paul opened up a scoring explosion in the second half. The Huskers are still working on improving their defensive play, which was evident by Ndamukong Suh's 49 yard interception return for a touchdown in the first quarter. The Huskers won going away 35 - 12, but both the offense and defense still have much to work on before they start Big 12 play. The Huskers face New Mexico St. next Saturday who should test the Huskers early.
GAME STATS  .......   HIGHLIGHTS




Cody Glenn started his first game as linebacker and he was all over the field. He accounted for 12 tackles, 3 pass breakups and forced a fumble to help the Huskers to a 47 - 24 victory this weekend over Western Michigan. The Husker passing game and defensive line and linebacker play looked good. The Huskers still need to get the running game going and they have work to do in the secondary if they want to make some noise in the Big 12 North this year. The Huskers will take on San Jose St. next weekend as they continue to prepare for Big 12 conference play.
