Huskers throttled in prime time

No. 5/6 Ohio State produced a complete game in all phases to post a 48-7 win over Nebraska.

The Buckeyes showed they may be one of the nation’s best teams, rolling for 580 total yards, including 368 on the ground, while holding the Husker offense to just 231 total yards.

Justin Fields threw for three touchdowns and ran for another, while Nebraska quarterback Adrian Martinez was intercepted on three of the Cornhuskers’ first four series.

Ohio State scored on six straight possessions and led 38-0 at halftime. By the time Nebraska finally scored, the Buckeyes had rolled off 124 straight points since trailing Miami (Ohio) 5-0 last week.

Dedrick Mills with first-half gain.



This was not one of Erik Chinander’s better games. ... The Blackshirts never really came close to disrupting the Buckeyes.


It was set up to be an electric night. The whole weekend had been that way. It turned out to be depressing.


It will in fact be a long time before the people who matter ... will worry about Nebraska.

Hail Varsity

Nebraska never quit, but the Huskers’ effort and execution weren’t nearly good enough to stay in this one.

Omaha World-Herald

It'd be foolish to say Martinez cost his team the game. That's going too far. Bottom line, Ohio State's a monster.

Lincoln Journal Star

This was a chance for Nebraska to show that it embraces the spotlight and can put the recent past back in the past, but instead it was Ohio State seizing the moment.

Daily Nebraskan

It was another behind-the-woodshed moment for a Husker program which has found itself in that position way too many times in recent years.

Grand Island Independent

This ranks ... as one of the lower moments we've seen in Memorial Stadium in the modern era. Never once did you feel the Huskers were in this game.


Frost’s team showed the same flaws Saturday as Mike Riley’s and Bo Pelini’s. Minus-3 in turnovers. Manhandled at the line of scrimmage.

Omaha World-Herald

This second season keeps giving us reminders that this rebuilding project might be harder and longer than even Frost knew when he came back.

Husker Mike

Let’s acknowledge that Ohio State played exceptionally well in this game. And more importantly, edge away from the panic button.
