Nebraska Leads Maryland 34-0 At Half

It’s been a really great half for our beloved Huskers!

Jon Johnston

It’s a great start to the day as receivers Wan’Dale Robinson and Kanawai Noa don’t make the trip. Barrett Pickering is out.

Nebraska starts with the ball!

For some reason Brody Belt decides to take the kick out of the end zone, getting tackled at the 15. The first play from scrimmage loses four yards. Martinez hits Dedrick Mills for eight yards then Martinez rushes for six yards to gain a first down.

Nebraska fails to score.

Nebraska 7-0

On their first possession, Maryland fumbles the ball straight up into Marquel Dismuke’s hands! It’s a beautiful catch and run! Dismuke returns it to the 13.

Dedrick Mills runs for seven yards. Then for six yards. That equals 13, and it’s a TOUCHDOWN!

Matt Waldoch makes the PAT. He played on the club soccer team before he joined the football program. Yay!

(Scoring Drive: 2 plays, 13 yards, 0:30)

Yay again!

Nebraska 14-0

Our beloved Huskers are forced to punt the ball, but Maryland gets a 15-yard personal foul penalty when one of their guys tries to jump over the punt block protection. This is amazingly dumb and gives Nebraska a first down.
