Husker Enunwa chalks up big plays against Northwestern
One guy that came up huge in the Huskers most recent win over the Northwestern Wildcats is wide receiver Quincy Enunwa. The junior from Moreno Valley, California had six catches for 110 yards including three fourth quarter receptions during the two touchdown drives that allowed the Huskers to defeat the Wildcats 29-28.
He and Kenny Bell both had six catches as Taylor Martinez completed 27 passes to 9 different receivers.
"Q" knows since Kenny grabs much of the opponents attention, he provides another great target for Taylor.
Quincy's 31 yard catch preceeded Taylor's touchdown throw to Tariq Allen cutting the Wildcats lead to 28-23. On the next drive, Ben Cotton caught the winning touchdown pass.
"Q" left the game with a shoulder injury in the first half, but returned to be a clutch player.
Coming into the game against Michigan, the Huskers are a very respectable 3rd in the Big Ten is passing averaging 233 yards a game with 16 touchdown passes by Taylor Martinez and four interceptions. Michigan is first in the league in pass defense averaging only 142 yards a game so Nebraska will be challenged by the Big Blue.
