Commentary

Neeley: “It was painful to watch NU get beat in all phases of the game in that first half.”
Sipple: “Nebraska's offense was too often feast or famine. It's a style that can wear out NU's defense.”
Shatel: “The Huskers are 2-0. But who are they? Where are they going?”
Stryker: “On a positive note, youth stepped forward and took some responsibility for the Huskers.”
Bishop: “Disciplined defenses are not going to simply allow the big play to happen once every seven snaps.”
Severe: “The fourth or fifth best team in the WAC at times dominated both sides of the line play.”
Husker Mike: “It's not a win that gives you a lot of confidence that this team is ready to compete in the Big Ten.”
Chatelain: “The Huskers got beat at the line of scrimmage. On both sides of the ball.”
Purvis: “Does the team have what it takes to … stand up to the physical rush attacks we’re about to see?”
Zatechka: “The lack of an identity on offense affects more than just, well, the offense.”
Feit: “This team is capable of facing adversity … yet still finds a way to win.”
