This game started in the most horrific way. Because of a game delay for el assico, the game between Iowa - Iowa State, our beloved Huskers were switched to Fox Business Channel. Switching their early lead to Lou Dobbs, which no human alive should watch. I say that as a person who does not give a whole shit about politics but about your safety.
Isaac Armstrong hit a 36-yard field goal. This is amazing because he is a pretty good punter and all the kickers we have are hurt. I have asked around, and there is not a disease that is specifically infecting kickers, so it must be our bad luck.
Maurice Washington receives a 21-yard pass from Adrian Martinez.
Maurice Washington explodes on an inside run for 60 yards. Armstrong’s PAT is blocked.
At this point Northern Illinois has five drives with:
3 PUNTS, 1 Fumble, 1 Turnover On Downs
Joh Richardson scores on a 45-yard field goal for the Huskies.
Dedrick Mills goes right up the middle for 24 yards.
Nebraska BLOCKS ANOTHER PUNT
And gets nothing.
We clearly have a problem with kicking field goals.
Nebraska 23-5 - Nebraska Safety
Illinois quick-kicks the ball down inside the five. Nebraska runs a swing pass to Maurice Washington. Austin Allen doesn’t block well. End result, safety.
