Miami defense too much for Huskers
The Hurricanes gave sixth-ranked Nebraska no chance at an upset as they dominated the Huskers from start to finish in a 23-3 win.
Nebraska was kept out of the end zone for the first time since a 20-3 loss to Alabama in the 1978 opener at Birmingham, and the Hurricanes came within a whisker of keeping the Huskers off the scoreboard for the first time since 1973.
The Huskers’ only serious scoring threat came early in the second half after Tahaun Lewis picked off a Steve Walsh pass and returned it 31 yards to the Miami 37. On first down, I-back Ken Clark gained 16 yards to the 21, but after Steve Taylor was sacked for a 13-yard loss (one of six sacks against NU), Nebraska had to settle for a career-long 50-yard field goal by Gregg Barrios.
