As the Nebraska Cornhuskers head into Big Ten Conference play, it's time to take a look at where the Huskers stand from a numbers point on both the Offensive and Defensive sides of the ball.
37th - National ranking of Nebraska's Scoring Offense, 3rd in the Big Ten. (36.3 ppg)
51st - National ranking of Nebraska's Rushing Offense, 8th in the Big Ten. (194.75 ypg)
17th - National ranking of Nebraska's Passing Offense, best in the Big Ten. (324.8 ypg)
19th - National ranking of Nebraska's Total Offense, 2nd in the Big Ten. (519 ypg)
76th - National ranking of Nebraska's Scoring Defense, 11th in the Big Ten. ( 26.5 ppg)
7th - National ranking of Nebraska's Rushing Defense, best in the Big Ten. (73.5 ypg)
128th - National ranking of Nebraska's Passing Defense. This is last in FBS. (379.5 ypg)
103rd- National ranking of Nebraska's Total Defense, 12th in the Big Ten. (453 ypg)
300 - Nebraska has passed for more than 300 yards the past five games, tying a school record.
5 - Nebraska WR Jordan Westerkamp has 5 straight games with a touchdown catch, one short of the school record of Johnny Rodgers with 6.
5 - This number also means something to QB Tommy Armstrong Jr., as he's 5th on Nebraska's career Passing Yards list with 4,927 yards. Sometime before November, it's expected that Armstrong passes Zac Taylor for 2nd on the all-time list. Also, if Armstrong stays the starter through his Senior year and has a similar success rate as he's having, taking over the top spot from Taylor Martinez with 7.258 yards is not out of the question.
17- This is the number of total starters through 4 games the Huskers Defense has had to use, due to both injury and performance.
11- That's where Jordan Westerkamp sits on the Nebraska all-time receptions list with 90 total snags. He would have to double his current career output, however, to catch Kenny Bell who sits on top of the list with 181.
10 - That is also where Westerkamp sits on the Nebraska all-time Receiving Yards list. Kenny Bell sits on top of this one as well, but Westerkamp only needs 1308 yards in his career at Nebraska to catch Bell.
18 - This number is the consecutive number of games Nebraska has scored 3 or more Touchdowns, which is the third longest streak in school history. It is also the third longest streak in FBS currently, with Baylor and Michigan State tied at 19 games just above Nebraska. The last time Nebraska failed to score 3 or more TD's was the '13 game vs. Iowa.
92 - That's the number of plays Nebraska has had this year of 10 or more yards, second to only Cincinnati in FBS for rank.
1000 - This is a number that has never gotten hit in Nebraska Football history by a WR in reception yardage, but TWO Huskers in Westerkamp and Brandon Reilly are both over 330 yards for the season, and would average out for both to be over 1200 yards for the year.
23- Total number of tackles made this season so far by the Nebraska Defense's leader, who is Joshua Kalu. Nathan Gerry is second with 21.
2- Number of Interceptions that leads the team, by Nathan Gerry.
4 - Number of sacks by team leader Freedom Akinmoladun, the rest of the team combine for 6 total sacks. Freedom also leads Nebraska in Tackles for Loss with 6 of them.
75 to 78 - The lowest and highest number of plays in a game from the Nebraska Offense.
69 to 75 - The lowest and highest number of plays in a game against the Nebraska Defense
