Commentary

Stryker: “Just like that, a disjointed defense found choreography.”
Bishop: “Darn near everyone in the secondary saved their best coverage day for Sparty.”
Neeley: “You could see the light come on for the Nebraska defense.”
Husker Mike: “Biggest difference maker to me? Cornerback Andrew Green.”
Barfknecht: “Saturday looked like an S.O.S. – Same Old Spartans – especially laying an egg on the road.”
Shatel: “What we saw were signs of hope, all around, for a November charge through the hinterlands.”
Chatelain: “This was a fanny-whippin' from start to finish, with SuperRex leading the way.”
Sipple: “In Nebraska's most critical game of the season to date, the Burkhead legend grew.”
Rosenberg: “The Spartans put too much of the game on Cousins’ arm before it was necessary”
Mayo: “The pressure on Cousins by the defensive front four … was astounding.”
