After suffering a season opening heartbreaking loss to BYU, the Nebraska Cornhuskers rebounded in a big way, running all over the South Alabama Jaguars 48-9. The win was the first victory for the Mike Riley led squad and saw Terrell Newby rush for nearly 200 yards and two touchdowns. He also had one receiving as part of Tommy Armstrong's big day through the air, racking up 270 yards going 21-30 on the day.
The game also saw the return of Michael Rose-Ivey who led the team in tackles with 10.
The Huskers next take on the Miami Hurricanes in Miami. Last year's matchup featured an emotionally charged contest that the Huskers were able to win. The Huskers will look to push their record to 2-1 on the young season and build on the big win over the Jags. The Hurricanes are 2-0 after knocking off Florida Atlantic 44-20 Friday night.
