It’s been a disaster of a game so far for Nebraska at Ohio State this evening. The Huskers are behind 31-3 at half, and have seen their four-year starting quarterback Tommy Armstrong carted off in an ambulance after being knocked unconscious during a running play late in the second quarter.
I’m not going to detail every bloody point that was scored because the first half was already depressing enough.
Suffice it to say that Tommy Armstrong threw a pick six on Nebraska’s first possession when the ball was tipped on a third and three play and things haven’t gone that well since.
On the next possession, Nebraska did drive the length of the field, mostly, but got stopped. They went 15 plays for 72 yards, but they had to settle for a field goal.
Here’s the best news of the first half:
--Quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr. accounted for 93 total yards in the first half (19 rush, 74 pass). Armstrong increased his career total offense total to 10,254 to set a Nebraska record, moving past the previous mark of 10,233 yards by Taylor Martinez. Armstrong set the mark on a 32-yard pass to Jordan Westerkamp in the first quarter.
