NU produced 439 yards of total offense, but UCLA bettered that total by more than 200 yards and controlled the ball for 94 snaps.

Commentary

Can you win the Big Ten if you get owned in the trenches by a middle-of-the-Pac 12 bunch?

Where is the next Lavonte David? Where is the next Ndamukong Suh? They ain’t coming out of that tunnel.

UCLA piled up 653 yards of total offense. That’s an end-of-the-Bill-Callahan-era figure.

Pelini’s detractors suddenly have more ammunition. The shrill voices will become deafening in some corners of our little world.

Whitney

Nebraska’s offense did some great things in this game. But they were largely confined to the first half.

Hamar

The offense didn’t make the plays it needed in the second half when they were needed the most.

Grand Island Independent
Vogel

The Huskers under Pelini are almost always ‘close.’ But, as the UCLA game proved yet again, Nebraska isn’t there.

What really stood out was how UCLA head coach Jim Mora attacked Nebraska on the edges.
