Commentary
Stryker: “If you’re a Husker fan who’s more than 30 years of age, you got the definite feeling that you’d seen something like this before, and you couldn’t stop smiling.
McKewon: “The Blackshirts evoked memories of those days of heaven, the mid-1990s.
Chatelain: “The Huskers stored up three weeks of anger and dumped it on hapless Arizona.
McKeever: “Arizona’s hope of turning this thing into struggle-for-yardage slugfest was derailed in the early going thanks in large part to the creativity of NU offensive coordinator Shawn Watson.
Shatel: “The Husker offense looked like, well, an offense.
York: “The Huskers found … something they will need to make a serious run for a national championship in 2010 – some real, honest-to-goodness offensive swagger.
Sipple: “The offseason just got much more pleasant for offensive coordinator Shawn Watson.
Hansen: “The Holiday Bowl came off as a game between the Big 12 and the Little One.
Canepa: “Hear tell Arizona spent upward of $30,000 on throwback white helmets. … White flags would have been much cheaper – and appropriate.
