Commentary

Callahan

What was impres­sive on Saturday was you didn’t see very many missed tackles or coverage busts.

HuskerOnline
Stryker

I’m willing to live with a few questions on offense if the defense finds answers and gains confidence.

Johnson

So has this young defense grown up, or are they just great against bad teams?

It’s difficult to imagine a much better schedule to help Nebraska’s young defenders get their bearings.

Lincoln Journal Star
Chatelain

NU needs its offensive line to shine in November and Long’s absence would make the task more difficult.

The quarterback controversy of 2013 ended Saturday.

The Nebraska defense has indeed made great strides in the past couple of weeks.
