Huskers lose Armstrong, suffer big loss: No. 10 Nebraska dug itself a hole and never responded in a lopsided 62-3 loss to No. 6 Ohio State that puts the Huskers out of the driver’s seat in the race for the Big Ten West Division championship.
   The only bright spot for Nebraska came when quarter­back Tommy Armstrong Jr., still wearing the bottoms of his hospital scrubs, trotted back into Ohio Stadium during the third quarter. Armstrong had left the stadium via ambulance in the first half after being briefly knocked unconscious.
   Ohio State dominated from beginning to end, outyarding Nebraska 590 to 204. The 59-point margin of defeat was the second-worst in Husker history (2004, 70-10 vs. Texas Tech).

Let’s hope the Huskers’ inept performance was deceptive, and that its character rises to the top.”

The Huskers still have a whole lot to play for, but that may not be the case if they can’t find a way to recover in a hurry.”
