2007 Huskers hit the ground running, pound Wolf Pack
Marlon Lucky erupted for a Nebraska season-opening record 233 rushing yards and three scores to power Nebraska to a 52-10 victory over Nevada.
Lucky stole the show as the featured back in Nebraska’s high-powered rushing attack that racked up 413 yards on 70 attempts against the Wolf Pack. He became the first Husker to score four touchdowns in a game since David Horne did it at Texas A&M in 2002.
Freshman I-back Quentin Castille enjoyed an impressive first game in a Husker uniform by adding two rushing touchdowns of his own while carrying 18 times for 78 yards.
Senior quarterback Sam Keller also produced a solid opening effort at the controls of Nebraska’s West Coast Offense by completing 14-of-25 passes for 193 yards with one touchdown and an interception in his highly anticipated Husker debut.
Keller and reserve quarterback Joe Ganz also got plenty of receivers involved in Nebraska’s passing attack, as 11 Huskers recorded at least one reception.
