Commentary
Stryker: “Lavonte David, seemingly the last Blackshirt with a pulse, pumped life into the whole team with an All-America play.”
Bishop: “Taylor Martinez, who never should have been in the bulls eye of last week’s loss, earned his nickname against Ohio State.”
York: “David turned crisis into opportunity and angst into hope”
Neeley: “There are no easy answers why this team has lost its edge on defense. Maybe it gained some of that back on this night.”
Chatelain: “[Martinez] swallowed his anger, found his poise and rallied his team.”
Shatel: “We saw the worst of Nebraska football, and then best, all wrapped up in 60 madcap minutes.”
Sipple: “Nebraska somehow pulled off a triumph that, in the span of the second half, altered the mood of a skittish fan base.”
Husker Mike: “[Martinez] kept his poise all night long, much to the chagrin of a couple of Martinez-bashers that were within earshot of me.”
