Huskers Storm Past Cyclones

Facing a stiff challenge from previously unbeaten Iowa State, Nebraska erupted for four touchdowns in the final quarter and pulled away for a 49-27 win.

Nebraska (5-0, 2-0 Big 12) stretched its winning streak to 11 games, but it wasn’t as easy as the final score indicated. The Huskers trailed 14-13 at the half and led only 21-20 entering the final period.

Nebraska turned on the power when it had to as Willie Miller’s nine-yard TD run and Correll Buckhalter’s one-yard TD burst gave the Huskers a 35-20 lead with 9:55 to play.

The Huskers were able to wear down Iowa State on the ground, rushing for 336 yards on 60 carries. Dan Alexander had 96 yards on 21 attempts.

Commentary

Colonel Mustard

Our offense looks so good at times and disappears at others. I hope our problem is that we play to the level of our competition.

Shatel

Sometimes a No. 1 team finds out about itself when the bitter wind's in its face and it has to make plays and an opponent and its stadium is feeling the magic.

Omaha World-Herald
McKeever

What's most telling ... was how the Blackshirts stood tall in the teeth of that wind. How, after Rosenfels whipped the crowd into a frenzy, they shut everybody up.

Lincoln Journal Star
Douglass

It's the Cyclones' 37 net yards rushing that prove Blackshirts are still alive and kicking.

Red Clad Loon

The only time Nebraska defenders experience three stops in a row is when they're driving in downtown Lincoln.

Schaller

[Crouch] will carry his team on his newly-muscular shoulders if he must, willing the Huskers past both opponents and their own undoings.

Scottsbluff Star-Herald
Hansen

Nebraska did what Nebraska does. It morphed into the Big Red Snowball and turned a close game into another near-miss gone bad for Iowa State.

Des Moines Register
Hlas

This was at least a contest. Until the final 10 minutes, neither side led by more than eight points.
