Huskers Drop Regular-Season Finale: Nebraska’s defense did its best to hold Iowa’s offense in check, but NU was unable to overcome four turnovers as the Huskers dropped their final game of the regular season to the No. 3 Iowa Hawkeyes, 28-20.
   While Iowa quarterback CJ Beathard was 9-for-16 for 97 yards and one touchdown, Nebraska’s Tommy Armstrong Jr. was 25-for-45 for 296 yards and threw career-high four interceptions.

COMMENTARY

Sherman

With so many op­por­tunities missed – including plenty Friday – Nebras­ka finds itself mired in a state of anxiety for the next nine months.”

Mitch Sherman
ESPN.com

Chatelain

[Iowa] is exactly the hard-nosed bunch that Nebraska has failed to emulate the past 15 years.”

Dirk Chatelain*
Omaha World-Herald

Dienhart

Today’s win at Nebraska was a classic example of ‘Iowa football.’ It wasn’t pretty or dominating ... but it was effective.”

Tom Dienhart
BTN.com

Hamar

One way or another, the Huskers have to improve the running game for next season.”

Bob Hamar
Grand Island Independent

Hlas

The fundamental things always have applied, and always will. Nebraska had four turnovers, the Hawkeyes but one.”

Mike Hlas
Cedar Rapids Gazette

Staples

Friday’s was not a beautiful win, though those two Canzeri runs were blocked beautifully.”

Andy Staples
Sports Illustrated

Sipple

Even Tommy Armstrong was talking about Tommy Armstrong, and he spoke some cold and hard truths.”

Steven M. Sipple*
Lincoln Journal Star

Shatel

The Hawkeyes win because they don’t make mistakes. The Huskers play like they invented them.”

Tom Shatel*
Omaha World-Herald

Barfknecht

No Hawkeye enjoyed beating Nebraska more than linebacker Cole Fisher.”

Lee Barfknecht*
Omaha World-Herald

Chatelain

Armstrong’s performance the past few weeks ... raises serious questions about the position in 2016.”

Dirk Chatelain*
Omaha World-Herald

Stryker

On this day, the difference was this: Iowa has a quarter­back and a coaching staff with more patience and maturity than does Nebraska.”

Tad Stryker
HuskerMax

Vogel

Iowa does all of the things Nebraska can’t or won’t.”

Brandon Vogel
Hail Varsity

Callahan

Patrick O’Brien now becomes the story going forward. Will he be good enough to push Armstrong?”

Sean Callahan
HuskerOnline

Brown

Style points don’t matter. Twelve teams tried to beat Iowa. Not one was successful.”

Rick Brown
Des Moines Register

York

[Tommy Armstrong] faced Husker Nation with brutal candor and vowed to change in his final season.”
