Greg joined me at my house in Minnesota for a great day of college football, including a Nebraska 35-21 win over Indiana!
Biggest key to the win: Nebraska had a bad thing happen - the fumble for a TD by Chubba Purdy - and didn’t let it destroy their hopes for a victory.
All the stuff that happened:
- Casey Thompson to Trey Palmer should be a huge key for the rest of the season.
- Special teams blocked a punt for a touchdown for the first time since 2009
- Mickey Joseph got his first win as head coach
- Nebraska is tied for first in the Big Ten west
- I spent the fourth quarter telling everyone in my house to “live for right now” and stop worrying about what might happen in the future.
- Nebraska had more punt return yardage in this game than in all of last year.
