Big Plays, Blackshirts Enough for Big Red: Nebraska jumped to a 17-0 first-quarter lead, then got 10 huge points in the fourth quarter to overcome a scrappy bunch of Hoosiers.

After Indiana raced 75 yards in five plays to cut Nebraska’s lead to 24-22 with 8:26 left, the Huskers mounted a 15-play, 60-yard march that consumed 7:41 and all of Indiana’s timeouts. Drew Brown turned Nebraska’s tenuous two-point lead into a five-point edge with a 39-yard field goal with 45 seconds left.

Cornerback Aaron Williams then sealed the win with an interception on Indiana’s final possession.

Tommy Armstrong gets a pass off under pressure in the first half.



Even with a mediocre pass rush, the Husker secondary is tough.


There’s no one thing wrong with Indiana’s offense, and therefore no one way to fix it.

Indianapolis Star

This team once again showed some resiliency that we certainly didn’t see a year ago.

Grand Island Independent

I thought it was collectively the Huskers’ best defensive performance of the season.


This is, ladies and gentlemen, a conference win on the road. Never take those for granted.


It was ugly. It was beautiful. It was straight out of Iowa's 2015 playbook.

Omaha World-Herald

There's nothing in the playbook that accounts for a team’s chemistry and deter­mination. Nebraska seems to have plenty of both, starting with its quarterback.

Lincoln Journal Star

Nebraska held Indiana to 333 yards on Saturday and it did it in the most old-fashioned way possible – it tackled.

Hail Varsity

Pretty, it wasn’t, but these Huskers didn’t travel to the heart of the Hoosier state to win a beauty pageant.


Nebraska football needs to believe in itself again. That is happening this season.

Omaha World-Herald

While the unbeaten and No. 10-ranked Cornhuskers seemed pretty good at times – especially defensively -- there was no doubt they were also lucky.

Bloomington Herald-Tribune

At the midway point of the 2016 season, Nebraska looks like the Big Ten’s new Rorschach test.
