Commentary

Stryker: “I never thought I’d see Northwestern nearly double up Nebraska in rushing yardage, but that’s what happened.”
Bishop: “The most disturbing development was the Blackshirt defense’s complete inability to stop the Wildcats when it mattered most.”
Chatelain: “The Blackshirts physically dominated Michigan State a week ago. This time, they were the nail.”
Husker Mike: “Only two players seemed to show up this afternoon for Nebraska: Taylor Martinez and Brett Maher.”
Sipple: “The Husker offensive line, a potent group most of the season, took about three steps backward.”
Shatel: “Call it the annual gag. Or the yearly hiccup. But until Nebraska learns to avoid this sort of glitch, there won't be any BCS bowls or conference championships in Bo Pelini's program.”
