Huskers Pepper Ragin’ Cajuns

The Nebraska offense scored early and often, and the Blackshirt defense notched its first shutout in three years as the Cornhuskers celebrated the NCAA-record 300th consecutive sellout at Memorial Stadium with a 55-0 victory over Louisiana.

Nebraska improved to 3-1 on the season after racing to a 34-0 halftime lead.

Quarterback Zac Lee marched Nebraska efficiently and consistently, completing 15 of 18 passes for 238 yards and a touchdown in less than three quarters. Freshman Cody Green then came on and led the Huskers on a pair of fourth-quarter touchdown drives, completing 7 of 8 passes for 62 yards, including a 24-yard touchdown connection with fellow freshman Rex Burkhead.

Green added a 24-yard scoring run of his own on the next drive to cap Nebraska’s scoring with 8:36 left in the game.

This appears to be a Nebraska team that is gaining momentum, and the defense is the reason

Perhaps the best compliment one can give the Huskers right now is a tip of the cap for their relentless approach.

It felt the way most every Nebraska football game used to feel.

That passion is there. The talent is getting there. The precision? Not quite.

If there’s a better defense in the Big 12 North, I haven’t seen it.

The Cornhuskers showed they didn’t leave their collective heart in Blacksburg.

Nebraska played like a team on a mission, giving its fans the opportunity to behave playfully and uninhibitedly.
