Tanner Lee threw two touchdowns in first quarter … to Northern Illinois

Nebraska showed little resistance in allowing the Ducks to race out to a 28-point halftime lead last weekend, then held OR scoreless thereafter before their fourth and final turnover sealed their fate in a 42-35 loss. The veteran now has more interceptions than touchdowns between the four he threw in Autzen Stadium against OR and the three he tossed this week against Northern Illinois. "They just had a flawless defense, I took a gamble and they blitzed the corner who jumped that bubble throw and took it to the house".

Three series later, Lee was hit while throwing and the Huskies' Jawuan Johnson returned the flutter ball 25 yards for a 14-0 lead. Their lone touchdown on offense came on a run in the fourth quarter that gave them the lead. Things started to turn when they got 17 back on us, but there was never a panic in the defense.

The following week, Nebraska dug themselves a huge first half hole by trailing OR 42-14 at halftime before the Ducks eased up in the second half. In the last two games, he has attempted 88 passes and suffered seven interceptions - one nearly every 12 attempts. "We definitely needed that offensively, it got us going".

Combined with last week's 42-35 loss at OR, the Huskers have trailed at halftime in their last two games by the total score of 56-14.

Nebraska marched 71 yards on 15 plays, ending the drive with a 36-yard field goal from Brown.

Meanwhile, detectives were combing through the Hollywood facility where eight elderly residents died amid sweltering heat. Nursing homes in Florida are required by law to file an emergency plan that includes evacuation plans for residents.

"We're trying to come out of a hole", Riley said.

The Huskers' first-half offensive struggles culminated with Drew Brown's 37-yard field goal attempt being blocked on the final play of the half.

Nebraska got two more chances with the ball, advancing to the NIU 33 on the first drive before the Huskie defense - as it had nearly all day - stood strong with Mycial Allen defending the fourth and seven attempt and linebacker Kyle Pugh providing pressure.

The Huskies led 14-0 at the end of the first quarter, despite only 32 yards of offense.

Running back Mikale Wilbon, starting in place of the injured Tre Bryant, rushed for 90 yards on 24 carries for the Cornhuskers (1-2). He said he planned to have his defensive line coach, Brett Diersen, prep the team and coaching staff. Diersen was a Nebraska coaching intern under Bo Pelini from 2008-10. "I think we just began pressing, made mistakes and did uncharacteristic things", he said. The Cornhuskers attempt to put together a more complete game and pick up some steam heading into Big Ten play Saturday when they host Northern Illinois. "I would say that it was more execution". Luke Gifford led the Huskers with eight stops. A blueblood program writes a big check to an FCS or Group of Five conference school (often both in the same season) to visit one of the game's great cathedrals for what will likely be an easy blowout victory for the home team.
