Huskers Roll Up Over 500 Yards in 48-9 Win:Nebraska used a balanced offense and a stingy defense to put together four solid quarters of football in a 48-9 victory over South Alabama.

Junior I-back Terrell Newby, junior quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr., and junior receivers Lane Hovey, Brandon Reilly, Alonzo Moore and Jordan Westerkamp all put on a show as Mike Riley collected his first win as head coach of the Huskers.

Newby raced to a career-high 198 yards on 28 carries, while Armstrong orchestrated a passing game that accounted for 303 yards and three touchdowns.

Nebraska addressed its biggest problem from a week ago right off the bat.

Newby no doubt picked up confidence and gave Nebraska a go-to guy at the position, at least for now.

Nebraska’s opponents have been a little too comfortable thus far throwing the ball down the field.

It was straight-up vanilla, something for Miami to ponder and even better, some good food for the Husker soul.

Callahan

Offenses are going to continue to go after Davie until he proves he can be more consistent in pass coverage.

Maybe Newby’s performance gives Miami a little bit to think about.

Michael Rose-Ivey covered the field and restored some order.

Tommy Armstrong continues his evolution as a quarterback under the tutelage of Danny Langsdorf.
