Enunwa, Blackshirts Lead Huskers to Victory: Heroic efforts by Blackshirt defenders and the longest play from scrimmage in Nebraska football history sent a determined bunch of Husker seniors out with a dramatic 24-19 victory over Georgia.
   Wide receiver Quincy Enunwa, the game's MVP, hauled in a pair of touchdown passes, including a decisive 99-yard catch from quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr. on 3rd-and-14 midway through the third quarter.
