Huskers Fall at Minnesota: Nebraska’s 16-game winning streak against Minnesota ended with a 34-23 loss to the Golden Gophers at TCF Bank Stadium.
   Taylor Martinez played for the first time since the UCLA game in mid-September and led NU to scores on its first two drives. But Minnesota, relying on a strong running game, scored the next 17 points and never trailed after that.

The national sports media has come to expect this from Nebraska.”

Tad Stryker

Callahan

Something about the offense was just missing. There was no tempo or rhythm.”

Sean Callahan
HuskerOnline

Sipple

If you’re a Nebraska fan, you’re right to expect more from Bo Pelini’s program.”

Steve Sipple*
Lincoln Journal Star

Vogel

The gist [of the book on Nebraska] is this: Make the Huskers uncomfortable.”

Brandon Vogel
Hail Varsity

Husker Mike

Other than being unable to block, catch, and tackle, Nebraska had a decent game against Minnesota.”

Husker Mike’s Blasphemy

Dienhart

To say that the Cornhuskers are at a crossroads would be a massive under­state­ment. The loss ... was the nadir of the program under Pelini.”

Tom Dienhart, BTN

Chatelain

Shawn Eichorst had better be ready for big decisions.”

Dirk Chatelain*
Omaha World-Herald

Hamar

What Minnesota did to the Huskers was Big Ten football at its best.”

Bob Hamar
Grand Island Independent

Shatel

The sound you heard is the clock starting on Pelini’s time in Lincoln.”

Tom Shatel*
Omaha World-Herald

Ruesse

These were the new Gophers, the ones that said, ‘Let’s draw up some wild stuff and actually use it.’ ”
