Huskers pull away from Red Raiders

For the second straight week, NU passed for over 200 yards en route to a 50-27 victory over the unranked, but eventual bowl-bound Texas Tech Red Raiders.

Nebraska jumped out to a 10-0 lead, but the pesky Red Raiders put a test to the Huskers' new 4-3 defense, as they crept back to a 20-14 halftime deficit, then took the lead on their second drive of the third quarter when they recovered a fumble on NU's own 26-yard line and scored from there.

But Nebraska scored on its next three possessions, and two sacks by Butkus Award winner Trev Alberts and a fumble recovered by Tyrone Williams on a kickoff squelched the Red Raider upset plan.

On the day, quarterback Tommie Frazier completed 12 of 28 passes for a career-high 206 yards with a TD strike to tight end Gerald Armstrong and also rushed for a score. Corey Dixon was Frazier's favorite target, as the 5-foot-8 split end caught a career-high six passes for 116 yards. Place-kicker Byron Bennett added a career-high three field goals, two of which were over 40 yards, and was successful on five PATs, but had one blocked, ending a streak of 43 consecutive kicks.

Redshirt freshman I-back Damon Benning earned his first start for the injured Calvin Jones and responded with a game-high 127 yards on 19 carries and scored two touchdowns.

Alberts earned Big Eight Defensive Player-of-the-Week honors as he led all tacklers with 11 stops and single-handedly sacked TTU four times for 21 yards in losses.

The Huskers totaled 534 yards, including 317 on the ground, to TTU's total 323. Backup quarterback Tony Veland went down with a torn petellar tendon and would be lost for the rest of the season.
