Commentary

Stryker

Pound for pound, Bell is the toughest Cornhusker, both physically and mentally.

Callahan

Nebraska paid Southern Miss over $2 million to play in Memorial Stadium on Saturday, and it was worth every penny.

Sipple

Nebraska was dialed-in. The Huskers’ body language was good from the start.

Chatelain

Gregory is ... the explosive edge rusher Nebraska desperately needs.

Hamar

There is no relaxing – not for the coaches, players or fans. It’s now UCLA week.

We’ll know more a week from now. But we won’t see the finished puzzle, not by a long shot.

Omaha World-Herald
Vogel

It was less storm, more calm before the snap and it made a difference elsewhere.

Husker Mike

Offensively, it was another slow start for Nebraska, and I’m growing increasingly concerned about the offensive line.

Whitney

I liked the pass rush, even though there weren’t any sacks.

York

Gregory is showing signs of being a rather menacing pass rusher on the edge.
