Huskers cash in on Jayhawk miscues

Judd Davies scored two touchdowns and No. 19 Nebraska took advantage of a rash of penalties to beat Kansas 24-3 Saturday for its 35th consecutive victory over the Jayhawks.

Sophomore I-back Cory Ross rushed for a career-high 108 yards – all in the second half, as the Huskers pulled away on a pair of touchdowns by fullback Josh Davis, of 4 and 3 yards.

True freshman Adam Barmann was 24-for-34 for 204 yards, but threw three interceptions in his second game for Kansas.

The Huskers put the game away with a 12-play, 81-yard drive midway through the fourth quarter. On third-and-20, Lord hit Isaiah Fluellen for 39 yards to the 3, then Davies went into the end zone the next play for a 24-3 lead.

Colonel Mustard

Lord had a poor day throwing long and a good day on the intermediate routes. He did a good job of checking down to his 3rd and 4th option.


On an otherwise workmanlike day at Mount Oread, Ross was an eye-opening revelation.

Omaha World-Herald

Nebraska’s defense hurt the Jayhawks often, and the Jayhawks hurt themselves quite a bit, providing a highlight film worth of dropped passes, fumbles and penalties.

Nebraska StatePaper

If Jammal Lord and the rest of the offense don’t show up against Kansas State, look out.

Grand Island Independent
Red Clad Loon

Kansas coming up 30 points and 150 yards short of its typical day on offense, at home no less, probably ain’t nothin’ to sneeze at.


The most important part of Saturday’s game was that the Huskers left Lawrence with their fate firmly in their grasps.
