Crouch leads Huskers to convincing win over Owls
Eric Crouch threw three touchdown passes and ran for two more scores as No. 4 Nebraska beat Rice 48-3 on Thursday night.
The game had been scheduled for last Saturday but was postponed because of the terrorist attacks that shut down all major sports in the country.
Crouch, who had just two rushing touchdowns and one passing in the first three games, looked more like the player who carried the Huskers’ offense the past two seasons.
“I felt very comfortable out there. I knew this was going to happen,” said Crouch, who ran for 97 yards on 12 carries and passed for 165 yards — going 9-of-11 in less than three quarters.
After an emotional pregame ceremony that included a videotaped message from former Huskers coach and current U.S. Rep. Tom Osborne, Nebraska came out with its most dominating game of the season.
