Yes, Nebraska was able to come up with a win over Indiana but it wasn’t able to run the ball.
It ripped off runs in chunks against North Dakota and Georgia Southern,
but it couldn’t do anything against Oklahoma and it was stuffed too much by the Hoosiers.
Rutgers got run over by Ohio State, but that’s Ohio State.
Against everyone else the Scarlet Knight defensive front was a brick wall. Granted,
it didn’t deal with anyone who could pound, but beating Boston College and holding up against Iowa isn’t horrible.
Combine that with a strong secondary and lots of plays on third downs, and Nebraska will stall way too often
The Huskers finally got to exhale a bit.
The pressure was off, they had too weeks to let everything calm down, and what did they do?
They were able to win a tight game for once. It was 21 all against Indiana in the fourth quarter,
and everything was set up for yet another close loss when the team turned into Jell-O.
