Huskers’ run game levels Jayhawks

Quarterback Eric Crouch rushed for 127 yards and four touchdowns as Nebraska rolled over Kansas, 56-17.

Nebraska, which improved to 8-1 on the season and 5-1 in the Big 12, scored touchdowns on six of its first seven possessions and rushed for at least 400 yards for the fourth time this season en route to its 32nd consecutive win over the Jayhawks (4-5, 2-3).

Crouch became Nebraska’s all-time quarterback rushing leader with 2,152 yards, passing former NU All-American Steve Taylor. Crouch’s four rushing scores equaled a school quarterback record held by three others, most recently Scott Frost in 1997.

I-back Dan Alexander rushed for 119 yards Saturday, while Correll Buckhalter finished with 100. The only other time Nebraska had three players rush for at least 100 yards in a game was in 1988 against Arizona State.

Commentary

Colonel Mustard

I don't know why we didn't throw the ball more just for practice. The game was over by the middle of the second quarter and we kept running.

Shatel

After a week's sabbatical in Oklahoma, the Big Red Machine got back to smashing mouths and taking names.

Omaha World-Herald
McKeever

What's up with Kansas? That's a team that, even with seven turnovers, played Oklahoma as competitively as the Huskers did on the same field.

Lincoln Journal Star
Red Clad Loon

On Saturday, Nebraska ran at will. And at Bob. And Roy, and Rupert and anyone else who dared get in their way.

Schaller

The defense took last week’s beating as a challenge and stepped it up.

Scottsbluff Star-Herald
Gaskins

Davies could be the most athletic fullback NU has seen — and that's quite a feat.

Daily Nebraskan
Jones

If you watched five minutes of the game, you got the gist of it.
