Commentary

Stryker: “A beautiful Saturday afternoon in Minneapolis was therapy [for the defense].”
Sipple: “Is Nebraska's discipline and execution on defense improving? What did Saturday really tell us? Anything?”
Bishop: “Much better offenses with better quarterbacking are waiting for the Big Red.”
Chatelain: “It's time for his defense to start playing like the 2009-10 editions.”
Shatel: “Nebraska did what it was expected to do. This was essentially a second bye week.”
Husker Mike: “With an opponent playing so poorly, Nebraska did what good teams do...pounce.”
Powers: “Minnesota even outscored Nebraska 14-7 in the second half. Woohoo! Have a juice box, fellas.”
Reusse: “The score was 34-0 at halftime Saturday and, at that moment, Nebraska had scored 145 consecutive points vs. Minnesota.”
Zatechka: “NU did to an inferior opponent what they should have.”
