Huskers hammer Red Raiders

Cornerback Joe Walker delivered the first blow and quarterback Eric Crouch followed with his usual steady dose of big runs and passes as Nebraska rolled over Texas Tech, 56-3.

Walker returned an interception 19 yards for the game’s first score and Crouch accounted for three first-half touchdowns as the No. 1 Huskers (6-0, 3-0 Big 12) extended the nation’s longest winning streak to 12 games.

The Red Raiders (5-2, 1-2) had a nine-game home winning streak snapped. It was the worst loss in school history.

“We wanted to make a statement tonight,” said Crouch, who was able to sit out most of the second half.

Commentary

Colonel Mustard

Tech’s defense was small but we blew the biggest holes in them I have seen in a long time.

Shatel

This was a statement game, and it came at the perfect time for a Nebraska squad about to play the travel-agent games on its schedule.

Red Clad Loon

It's taken six games to say it, but Hail To The Blackshirts.

Schaller

That’s what you do when a team thinks it has a breath of air: You stomp on their throat. They show some heart, you take their soul away one play later.

Scottsbluff Star-Herald
Williams

Even when they have questions, the Cornhuskers have the wherewithal to look like the best team in the nation.
