Remember that 73–7 win for Nebraska last season over Idaho State?
You might now, but in 10 years
There's a good chance you won't
The games that will stick in your cranium ...are the big ones
Against ranked opponents ...when the stakes are the highest
And in those contests under Bo Pelini
The Huskers are an underwhelming ...8 and 14
Yet another big game disappointment
For big red ...as the Huskers ...looked sloppy as ever
Turning it over 5 times in a 41 to 28 loss to #16 Michigan State
Ending their chances of a return trip to Indianapolis for a big ten championship
"It's a tough loss, you know. We wanted it so bad. You could just tell in the locker room after the game. It's hard but at the same time, you got to let it go."
"We still got two games left. We got to finish out the season strong. I know we are out of the race but that doesn't mean the season is over and we still got two more games and a bowl game left to finish out strong and that's what we intend on doing."
"Everybody in that locker room I think has a pretty good understanding of what is going on. You got to stay mentally tough and the way you do that is circle the wagons around the guys you love. The guys that do it every single day."
