    Cornhuskers '14

    In Coach PipeHitter5331's first game at the helm, the #3 ranked 'Skers needed a pick-6 with 3 minutes left in the game to take the lead over an extremely scrappy KSU squad. These rivals went toe-to-toe before the Blackshirt defense sealed the game. Drew Patterson was 15-22 for 226 and 3 TD's, however he had one of his 2 int's returned for a TD. The EMAW defense also returned a fumble for a TD. Coach PH is confident that his running game will come around.

    Down 7-3 in the first quarter, Nebraska looked to be imploding as a Cowboy DB raced 90+ yds for a pick 6. Unfortunately for Poke fans, there was a roughing the passer call that negated the INT. Even more unfortunately for the Pokes, the Blackshirt defense decided that would be the end of it, holding OSU to 160 yds of total offense for the game. Junior RB Preston Weldon went 25 carries for 161 yds and a pair of touchdowns. The gameball was given by Coach PH to the Blackshirt Defense.

    After allowing the Mizzou passing attack to run willy-nilly for an opening drive score, Coach PH was seen devouring the hindparts of the Blackshirt defense. The 'Shirts responded by shutting down the 5-wide set and even housing a pick-6 with less than 2:00 to seal the game.

    Offensively Marcus Young and Preston Weldon were Lightning and Thunder tallying nearly 200 yds on the ground. Coach PH awarded the game ball to the Offensive Line as a unit for overpowering the pesky Tiger D-Line late in the 4th.

    The weather was perfect on a Rivalry Weekend with nearly 10 top recruits in attendance.

    In a game in which both offenses were God-awful, the Blackshirt defense rose to the challenge to hold off a scrappy Aggie offense in College Station. Mark Wallace and Bryan Thomas both had 10 tackles, while Jake McNair, Erik McNeal and Josh Nance all picked off Dave Slaughter passes. The Aggies were held to 215 yards of total offense as the #5 ranked Cornhuskers improve to 8-1 on the season. Coach PH gave the game ball to the Huskers nickel package, who held the Aggies to 2 for 12 on third down conversions.

    The Blackshirts were the Whiteshirts in this one as Nebraska donned all white uni's to keep from looking like their opponent. Soph TE John Mitchell was told by Coach PH right before the game that he was going from 2nd string to starter because he's shown great tenacity and improvement in practice. He responded by catching 6 passes for a career best 107 yards. Preston Weldon took it from there punching in 3 scores on the ground. Coach PH actually sent the game ball to the Pack locker room for Herschel Walker, er, Kris Lee who was unstoppable on the ground, gaining 152 yards on 18 carries for 1 TD of his own. The Blackshirt defense intercepted 2 passes and returned both for scores, proving to be the difference in the game. Huge rivalry game next week against CU, which will be watched by most of the Huskers top recruits. Should be a good one.

    Nebraska finished off the conference play and punched their ticket to the Big XII Championship by knocking off rival Colorado in the driving snow. There was no passing game to speak of for either team and Nebraska's O-line manhandled the Buffaloes front 4. Weldon and Young were Thunder and Lightning once again, accounting for 191 yds rushing and a TD. The Blackshirts held CU to a sparse 172 yards of total offense, with most of their points coming on a goal line interception that was returned 99 yards for a TD, only after the defender broke SEVEN TACKLES. Next stop, a rematch with the team responsible for Nebraska's sole loss due, in large part, to the fact that Coach PH had a brain malfunction and didn't bother to play the game. That won't happen again.
