Stats & Recap

Huskers grind out road win over Cyclones

Cody Glenn and Brandon Jackson each rushed for more than 100 yards and combined for three touchdowns to carry No. 22 Nebraska to its first road win of the season, a 28-14 victory over Iowa State.

The Huskers produced 251 rushing yards, including career highs of 148 yards and two scores from Glenn and 116 yards and another score from Jackson, who gave NU its second double-100-yard rushing performance in the last three games.

Quarterback Zac Taylor completed 17 of 21 passes for 131 yards and a key touchdown pass to Maurice Purify to close the first half. Taylor completed passes to nine different Husker receivers as he became just the fourth quarterback in NU history to cross the 4,000-yard career passing mark.

The Blackshirt defense, meanwhile, frustrated Iowa State’s potent attack throughout the night, limiting ISU to 53 rushing yards. Linebacker Bo Ruud led the defense with a team-high nine tackles, while defensive tackle Barry Cryer wreaked havoc up front with four tackles, including a nine-yard sack and a pass deflection.

Commentary

Shatel

It was a victory that was more functional and workmanlike than anything.

Omaha World-Herald
McKeever

Yes, the Huskers should feel a sense of redemption from their latest performance.

Lincoln Journal Star
Douglass

It probably should've come as no surprise that Callahan delivered yet another off-speed pitch in terms of how he handled his I-backs.

Grand Island Independent
Leever

Jackson might be the best back we have. He picks up blitzes better than any RB I can remember in recent history.

Husker Dan

The Husker blitz packages rattled Cyclone QB Bret Meyer. ... This was a big improvement over last week's fiasco with Kansas.
