Huskers vs. Illinois: Gallery

It wasn't a perfect performance, by any means, but it was a good start for the Huskers as they opened conference play in winning fashion. Ameer Abdullah's big day paced NU as he put up 225 yards on the ground. Red zone execution and communication late in the game on defense will give the coaches plenty of things to work on as they prepare to hit the road for the first time vs. Purdue next Saturday.
