The Huskers made plays when they had to. They also had all those mistakes that made a comeback necessary.”

Bob Hamar
Grand Island Independent

Whitney

Third downs proved to be momentum killers and put the Huskers behind the eight-ball.”

Chris Whitney
KLIN radio

Haugh

The Big Red Army made so much noise after Nebraska took the lead that Northwestern players needed to use a ‘silent count.’ ”

David Haugh
Chicago Tribune

Dienhart

Go ahead and dream a little, Cornhuskers fans. It’s OK. This team may have turned a big corner on this day.”
