Horned Frogs give Huskers tough fight
Eric Crouch became Nebraska’s all-time total offense leader in quarterbacking the fourth-ranked Huskers to a 21-7 victory over TCU in the 2001 Pigskin Classic.
Crouch rushed for 69 yards and a score on 24 carries, while completing 10 of 18 passes for 151 yards in sharing MVP honors. With his 220 yards of total offense, the senior from Omaha passed Tommie Frazier’s total of 5,476 set from 1992 to 1995.
I-back Thunder Collins rushed for 71 yards, scoring on runs of six and 26 yards, on 14 carries in his first career start.
While the Huskers amassed 310 yards of total offense against a team that led the nation in total defense last season, the Blackshirt defense allowed just 186 yards of total offense, including just 56 yards on the ground and six first downs.
