Huskers reflect on win over Badgers
For a second straight week it is a Prime Time nationally televised game for the Huskers. They'll go to the stadium known as the "Horseshoe" to face the Ohio State Buckeyes in Columbus and their outstanding quarterback Braxton Miller.
Bucky the Badger was at Memorial Stadium Saturday night and happy his team was up 27-10 in the second half before the Huskers stormed back with 20 consecutive points to take this Big 10 opener 30-27.
We'll remember 4th and one near midfield, time running out, Wisconsin needed the first down and they didn't get it as Alonzo Whaley shot the gap, hit Montee Ball who never had the ball in the first place, and the Husker victory was secure.
"It's a good feeling knowing everything you set out to work for is taking place in front of your eyes and it essentially came down to one play, but at the end of the day our team played well the whole second half," said Whaley.
"Got to be able to convert on those 3rd and ones, obviously. At the end of the game that was a 4th and one and it's 11 guys trying to execute. It's not just one guy. There's some breakdowns throughout and its something we have to make sure we emphasize in practice this week," said Badger Coach Brett Bielema.
Now it's the Ohio State Buckeyes ahead of the Huskers, the unbeaten Buckeyes at that. If, just if the Huskers can go to Columbus and get the win this coming Saturday night, they'll be 5-1 and most importantly 2-0 in Big Ten play before going to Northwestern October 20th.
"It all runs through their quarterback, but they have got some good players, they have some good backs, they're physical well coached up front, and they have some wide receivers that can hurt you down the field," said Husker Coach Bo Pelini.
It's not good news for the Buckeyes is that Ohio State running back, Jordan Hall, who suffered a knee injury in the win over Michigan State Saturday is doubtful to play against Nebraska Saturday. We'll see if it makes any difference.
