Game recap

Huskers shut down Tigers

Nebraska used its off week to heal bumps and bruises and prepare for the Big Eight season. The extra week of preparation appeared to help as the Huskers blanked conference foe Missouri 57-0.

The Blackshirt defense shut down the Tigers, allowing just 122 total yards, including just 39 on the ground. The defense also forced four turnovers, giving Nebraska a season-best plus-four in turnover margin. Doug Colman led the defense with eight tackles.

The Huskers wasted little time jumping on Missouri as quarterback Tommie Frazier rushed for three touchdowns in the first half and connected with Brendan Holbein for a 29-yard TD on the last play of the first half.

Frazier had a career-best five total offense TDs and broke Steve Taylor’s school record for total offense touchdowns with 64 (33 pass, 31 rush).

Freshman Ahman Green was solid in his first start at I-back, gaining 90 yards on 15 carries.

The victory improved Nebraska to 6-0 and set up a showdown with undefeated Kansas State the following week in Lincoln.

Commentary

Shatel

The Huskers are so used to winning big against overmatched opponents that on Saturday they sported a new look. They looked bored. Aren't we all? This isn't a season, it's reruns on Nickelodeon.

Tommie Frazier was built for competition and pressure. ... That's up next on Nebraska's schedule.
