Huskers Fall in OT After Amazing Comeback: Tommy Armstrong and the Huskers orchestrated the greatest fourth-quarter comeback in Nebraska history, erasing a 23-point deficit in the final 8:36 of regulation, but Miami escaped with a 36-33 overtime win.
   Armstrong led Nebraska to 23 unanswered points to send the game to overtime tied at 33. Nebraska’s comeback included a trio of fourth-quarter touchdown passes from Armstrong to Alonzo Moore, Brandon Reilly and Stanley Morgan, and a pair of two-point conversion passes to Cethan Carter and Jordan Westerkamp. The conversion pass to Westerkamp tied the score with 33 seconds left.

Grand Island Independent


Nebraska is thin on talent at some key spots, but they’re almost 3-0. That’s not worth anything now, but it might be down the line.”

What happened was the narrowest avoidance of what would have been one of the biggest collapses and embarrassments in Canes history.”

Greg Cote
Miami Herald


Harrassed all day and facing a fast pass rush and a number of dropped balls, Armstrong persevered and kept battling.”

What’s probably most frustrating about Saturday’s game was the fact NU didn’t come to play early.”
