Crick Leads Sacking of Bears in Waco

Quarterback Cody Green picked up a win in his first career start, but it was defensive tackle Jared Crick who stole the show with a school-record five sacks in Nebraska’s 20-10 victory over Baylor in front of a Husker-dominated crowd in Waco.

Crick also tied the school record of seven tackles for loss while registering 13 total tackles, including 10 solos. He also recovered a fourth-quarter fumble.

Crick’s defensive teammates, meanwhile, made plays to create turnovers for the Huskers. Dejon Gomes and Prince Amukamara both grabbed first-half interceptions to help Nebraska race to a 20-0 halftime lead.

Gomes’ interception in the end zone followed a Crick sack and stopped a Baylor drive. Green and the Nebraska offense then marched 75 yards on 12 plays, capped by Alex Henery’s 22-yard field goal to give the Huskers a 13-0 lead early in the second quarter.

Nebraska’s special teams played a major role, giving the Huskers a 7-0 lead before the offense ever took the field. Eric Martin broke through and blocked Derek Epperson’s punt following the Bears’ opening possession. Justin Blatchford scooped up the ball and raced 25 yards to paydirt.

Commentary

I’ll take ugly wins and uninspired offensive play over downright disastrous breakdowns at this point.

Green did something very important in his debut: He didn’t crash the car.

Saturday was a modest step forward. Finally. Maybe. We think. We hope.

Crick's emergence creates a conundrum for offensive coordinators.

Bring on Oklahoma!? Yep, and hide the women and children next Saturday, at least when Nebraska’s on offense.

How is Baylor ever going to win in the recruiting game if the opposing crowd outnumbers the home folks when a blue-chipper is making his visit?
