Game recap

Berringer, Huskers fend off ‘Poke uprising

With quarterback Tommie Frazier sidelined by blood clots, Brook Berringer earned his first career start and led the Huskers to their first come-from-behind victory of the season, a 42-32 win over Wyoming.

Nebraska was down 21-7 with 2:12 left in the first half after two Husker turnovers led to two Wyoming scores, but Berringer orchestrated a 2-minute drill beginning at the NU 36-yard line, completing seven straight passes for 59 yards, and scored on a 5-yard jaunt to cut the lead to 21-14 at halftime.

Berringer directed four consecutive scoring drives during a seven-minute span of the second and third quarters, unknowingly playing with a partially collapsed lung, which occurred during his TD run late in the first half. With 8:11 left in the third quarter, the Huskers’ 14-point deficit had turned into a 35-21 lead. Nebraska then fended off a Wyoming rally to secure the victory.

Commentary

Shatel

Berringer put the team on his back and carried it out of an unthinkable fate.

Omaha World-Herald
Babcock

The big question was how Brook Berringer would respond to the pressure of stepping in for Tommie Frazier. After a slow start, Berringer's performance was admirable, if not exceptional.

Lincoln Journal Star
Gullberg

UW's outstanding veteran defense was done in not by the opposition, but by its own youthful offense and special teams.
