Huskers run over Bruins: Nebraska used a punishing ground game to rally from a 14-point deficit and upset the UCLA Bruins in the Foster Farms Bowl, 37-29.
   The Huskers rushed for 326 yards and controlled the clock for more than 38 minutes, keeping UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen and the Bruins’ offense off the field, particularly during the pivotal third quarter.
   It was the largest deficit overcome in a Nebraska bowl win, eclipsing the previous high of 11 points. Nebraska’s 31 first downs also set a Husker bowl record.

Sipple

Yeah, this was old-school Nebraska. You hope it continues next season, but UCLA ain’t Ohio State, folks.”

The Bruins ... were playing a team from the traditionally suspect Big Ten. Yet that Midwestern team pounded them into sand.”

Rarely has a 300-yard rushing game felt so good and seemed so hopeful.”

The next step? Hitting a Big Ten West team in the mouth in 2016.”
