HAMKKMOOOOOKABOOM!

Nebraska’s defense shuts down the Wildcat offense as JoJo Domann squashes their quarterback to force a punt. Jacquez Yant enters the game. On his second carry, Yant breaks out on a 64-yard run to the Northwestern four-yard line. He had more speed than I expected.

Two plays later, Adrian Martinez scores on the ground again.

Nebraska 21 - Northwestern 0

Nebraska’s defense stomps on the ‘Cats again. The beloved Husker offense is clicking and sticking and goes down the field executing better than they have in Scott Frost history.

Martinez runs a triple option which completely confuses the overmatched NW defense. It’s another TD for Adrian.

Our beloved Huskers are kicking ass.
