Blackshirts Power Huskers Past Michigan: In a game dominated by the defenses, it was late heroics by Ameer Abdullah and Tommy Armstrong Jr. that propelled the Huskers to a come-from-behind fourth-quarter win at Michigan.

Abdullah’s five-yard touchdown plunge off a forward option pitch from Armstrong capped a clutch 75-yard drive that took more than six minutes. Abdullah’s second TD of the day gave the Huskers a 17-13 lead, and the Blackshirts made it hold up.

Commentary

Stryker

If they can bring back the take­aways, this defense could make it a very interesting stretch run.

Vogel

Saturday’s result showed that Nebraska is still alive in this one.

I love the ‘game manager’ role Armstrong took on today.

HuskerOnline
Sipple

Yeah, perhaps Pelini and his staff can coach a little.

Lincoln Journal Star
Hamar

What we’re really seeing is a young defense that struggled early this season come together in a hurry.

Grand Island Independent
Shatel

This looked like a coming-of-age game for Armstrong and that defense.

The big moment at the Big House could’ve crippled Tommy Armstrong. Instead, it brought out his best.
