Huskers Fall at Purdue: An injury-riddled Nebraska team turned the ball over five times and suffered a 55-45 loss to Purdue at Ross-Ade Stadium.
   Ryker Fyfe took the loss in his first career start despite throwing for 407 yards and four touchdowns. He also threw four interceptions and lost one fumble, and Purdue turned those turnovers into 28 points.
   The Big Red trailed 42-16 entering the fourth quarter but refused to quit, rallying for 29 points – the second-highest point total in the quarter in school history, trailing only 30 points at Hawaii in 1982.

The sheer volume of fundamental breakdowns is appalling. So is the apparent disinterest among the players.”

It’s up to Riley to prove he can fix a broken situation in Lincoln.”

Nebraska hit the low point since joining the Big Ten somewhere among all those big plays by the Boilermakers.”

Losing to Purdue in this fashion might be the lowest point for this program in decades.”

This loss damages the Nebraska football brand worse than any before.”

I don’t know where you go from here or how you even begin to spin this.”

Sean Callahan


It’s becoming hard to say this team is better than what the record shows. It looks like a 3-6 team. Hard, too, to say how it got there.”

I’m told Eichorst has very limited support among the upper-level administration, and support continues to wane with each loss.”

Steven M. Sipple*
Lincoln Journal Star


When Purdue more than doubles you up in rushing yardage, and hangs 50 points on you, it’s time to re-evaluate every part of your football program.”

Tad Stryker


Suddenly, there is less room for Riley. And his boss Eichorst. From here on, both will be viewed through a different prism: from the suites down to the cheap seats.”

Tom Shatel*
Omaha World-Herald


For Fyfe, it was the best of the world and the worst of the world in simultaneous time.”
