In rematch, Huskies shut down Huskers

Nebraska struggled to find its offensive rhythm against an inspired Washington defense in a 19-7 loss to the Huskies in the Holiday Bowl

With the loss, the Huskers finished with a 10-4 record for the second straight season, while Washington closed the year with a 7-6 mark while winning its final four games.

Washington jumped out to a 10-0 first quarter lead after an early NU miscue on its first possession. The Huskers had put together an eight-play drive that crossed into UW territory when Victor Aiyewa forced a Rex Burkhead fumble. Ta’amu Alameda recovered the ball and returned it to the Nebraska 21. Three plays later, Chris Polk’s three-yard touchdown run gave the Huskies a 7-0 lead.

After Erik Folk’s 39-yard field goal with 1:29 left in the opening quarter, Nebraska put together its only successful drive with a 10-play, 74-yard march capped by Taylor Martinez’s 15-yard touchdown pass to tight end Kyler Reed.

The Huskers couldn’t mount any serious scoring threats in the second half. NU managed just 156 total yards in the game after rolling up 533 yards in the first meeting with the Huskies this season in Seattle.

Nebraska’s lack of discipline and cohesiveness is what turned this season into a disappointment.

The entire offense needs to be put under the microscope.

I'm not sure Nebraska had a Plan B Thursday night.

This was a head scratcher. A complete failure to prepare.

Washington was motivated, Nebraska was not.

Tonight might have been the worst offensive performance by a Husker team in a bowl game ever, considering the level of competition.

Big Ten power teams will play this game tape at summer picnics.

This … was as significant as any postseason win in Huskies history.

The Huskies just wanted this one more than the Huskers.
