Dailey, Huskers soar past Bears

Sophomore quarterback Joe Dailey produced a record-breaking performance to lead Nebraska a 59-27 win over Baylor. Dailey completed 13 of 20 passes for an NU record 342 yards, surpassing the previous record of 297 yards set by David Humm in 1973.

Dailey also tied a Nebraska record with five touchdown passes while directing the Huskers’ most efficient offensive attack of the season. Dailey distributed the ball to seven different receivers, including sophomore wide receiver Isaiah Fluellen, who caught two passes for 72 yards and two scores.

Freshman running back Brandon Jackson joined Dailey with a career-best performance, rushing 18 times for 89 yards and two scores.

The Huskers led 10-3 before breaking the game open in the last six minutes of the first half, scoring on three pass plays covering 74, 27 and 45 yards.

Baylor rebounded from its 31-3 halftime deficit with two touchdowns in the first seven minutes of the third quarter to narrow the gap to 31-17, but the Bears would get no closer than that.

Commentary

Colonel Mustard

Joe was much more effective when he was not the focus of the game plan.

Shatel

Something's amiss when Baylor is cutting up NU's front four, running backs are wide open to catch swing passes and the corners are getting beat.

Omaha World-Herald
Douglass

In the last two games it would certainly seem that Nebraska defensive coordinator Kevin Cosgrove is succeeding in making sure the Blackshirts gravitate toward mediocrity.

Grand Island Independent
Khus the Red

This team is somewhere between 70-10 and 59-27. Exactly were that is, it is time to find out.

Before the season started, everyone expected the team to struggle for a month or two. And now that the team is struggling, it's being viewed by some as the end of the world.

After the Bears started shredding us in the third quarter, I began to wonder what happened to the D that refused to give up a TD against Kansas.
