    OVERVIEW

    With little more than the College Baseball World Series and a handful of minor league affiliates, for decades Nebraskans have hoisted their football program as a reminder that the state was indeed relevant in the sports universe. While the groundwork for dynastic success was laid by the legendary Bob Devaney, it was Dr. Tom Osborne who transformed the program into one of the most decorated in college football history. Following Osborne's retirement, the Husker program endured a sharp decline that has been in effect for the past decade. Last year, Nebraska took a significant step towards restoring some of its lost lustre by falling just short of its first conference title in more than a decade. While improvement is nice, Husker Nation demands a return to national prominence on a yearly basis. The dynamics of college football seem to be irrevocably changed in 2010, making it impossible for Nebraska to amass enough talent to consistently challenge for a national title. Instead, the Huskers will focus on winning the Big XII North on a yearly basis while joining Texas and Oklahoma as superpowers in the Big XII.

    Week 1

    #8 Nebraska - 69
    Western Kentucky - 13

    Nebraska celebrates the start of the 2010 season by slaughtering a sacrificial lamb from the Sun Belt Conference. The tone of the game was set on the first drive, as Heisman candidate Roy Helu took a handoff 78 yards untouched for a 7-0 lead. After scoring 48 points midway through the second quarter, the Husker starters on offense were replaced by the backups. The WKU offense was overmatched by the Blackshirts, who forced 6 turnovers and put consistent pressure on the opposing QB. As impressive as the defense performed, it was unable to secure the shutout as the second string defense surrendered consecutive 4th quarter scores to WKU. Next week, Nebraska travels to Gainesville to face the Gators.

    Stats-NU

    QB Zac Lee: 6/11 - 138 Yards - 2/0
    HB Roy Helu: 4 Carries - 86 Yards - 2 TDs

    DT Jared Crick: 9 Tackles - 3 Sacks

    Week 2

    #8 Nebraska - 14
    #6 Florida - 42

    The Huskers suffered a serious setback this week, losing big on the road to a talented Gator squad. The first half was competitive, as a fumble by HB Roy Helu in the redzone kept the Gators ahead by 7 going into the locker room. During halftime, the Gators made adjustments and exploded for 21 unanswered points in the 3rd quarter. The key to this game was the speed of the Gators. The Huskers simply couldnt keep up with Gator backfield, which scored on long TDs runs without so much as being touched by the opposition. For the game, the speedy Florida RBs accounted for 317 yards on the ground and 5 scores. Egos brusied, the Huskers must now pick up the pieces and focus on competing for the Big XII title.

    QB Zac Lee: 20/28 - 274 Yards - 1/1

    DE Pierre Allen: 4 Tackles - 2 Sacks

    Week 3

    #13 Nebraska - 27
    Washington - 8

    One week after being humbled by the Gators, the Huskers traveled to the West Coast to face an improved Husky squad. The Huskers defense had a lot to prove this week and for the most part they were up to the task. Star QB Jake Locker was held in check by the Blackshirts and threw for only 164 yards. The rush defense still appears flawed but limited UW to 113 yards rushing - a vast improvement from last weeks dismal effort. On offense, NU wasn't spectacular but used a balanced attack to move the chains and put points on the board.

    Stats - NU

    QB Zac Lee: 14/30 - 229 Yards - 1/0
    HB Roy Helu: 20 Rushes - 106 Yards - 2 TDs

    DE Pierre Allen: 1 Sack

    Week 4

    #12 Nebraska - 14
    #2 Ohio State - 20

    The Huskers offered the Buckeyes all they could handle but fall just short of pulling off the upset in front of the home crowd at Lincoln Memorial. OSU jumped out to a 10-0 lead early in the game, but Nebraska responded with two big scores to put the Huskers on top 14-10 at half. In the second half, OSU controlled the clock by pounding the rock and was able to score 10 unanswered points to pull to a 6 point lead. On their final possession, Nebraska got all the way down to the 11 yard line but Zac Lee threw his second pick inside the redzone and ended the Huskers chances at victory.

    Stats - Nebraska

    Week 6 - Rivalry Game

    #17 Nebraska - 41
    Kansas State - 3

    Nebraska triumphs in its conference opener against the rival Wildcats on the road. KSU jumped to a 3-0 lead early but could generate no more offense, as the Huskers scored 41 unanswered points to walk away with the easy win. QB Zac Lee, still lacking confidence after costing Nebraska a victory against Ohio State, continued to struggle and was ineffective all game long. On the other hand, HB Roy Helu displayed why many think he's one of the best in the country by gashing the Wildcat defense for nearly 150 yards. On defense, the Huskers intercepted QB Chase Coffman on three occasions and put him on the ground on multiple plays. Overall, a nice way to start the hunt for a Big XII title.

    Stats - Nebraska

    QB Zac Lee - 19/35 - 211 Yards - 0/2
    HB Roy Helu - 14 Rushes - 133 Yards - 4 TDs

    DE Pierre Allen - 2 Sacks
    LB Will Compton - Interception Returned for TD

    Week 7

    #15 Nebraska - 35
    #4 Texas - 42

    In a possible preview of the Big XII Championship Game, Texas prevails on the road to defeat the struggling Huskers by 7 points. Down 35-14 in the second quarter, the Huskers mounted a serious rally to pull within a score but a dropped pass by WR Niles Paul on the team's final possession saved the Longhorns from an embarrassing loss. As in the Florida and OSU games, the Huskers inability to stop the run proved too much to overcome. With the loss, Nebraska drops to 3-3.

    Stats - Nebraska

    QB Zac Lee - 16/31 - 248 Yards - 3/2
    HB Roy Helu - 19 Rushes - 204 Yards - 1 TD

    WR Niles Paul - 4 Receptions - 70 Yards
    LB Matt May - 1 Sack - 1 Fumble Recovery

    Week 8

    #19 Nebraska - 48
    Oklahoma State - 15

    The Huskers get back on track by winning on the road in Stillwater. The Cowboys' attempt to throw Nebraska off its game with the no-huddle was largely unsuccessful, as QB Brent Weeden threw for just 133 yards in this contest. All-American HB Kendal Hunter figured to have a huge game against the feeble Husker run defense but could only gain 44 yards on the ground. The weather conditions made it hard to pass, so the Huskers concentrated on pounding the rock. HB Roy Helu rose to the occasion and ran for 163 yards on 29 carries. At 4-3, the Huskers are down but far from finished.

    Stats - Nebraska

    QB Zac Lee - 13/20 - 217 Yards - 1/0
    HB Roy Helu - 29 Rushes - 163 Yards - 3 TDs
    HB Dontrayevou Robinson - 8 Rushes - 72 Yards - 1 TD
    WR Niles Paul - 5 Receptions - 106 Yards - 1 TD

    Week 9 - Rivalry Game

    #18 Nebraska - 52
    #19 Missouri - 22

    In week 9, Nebraska notches its first win over a ranked opponent, beating the rival Tigers by 30 in front of a packed house in Lincoln. Going into the game, Mizzou put its defensive focus on stopping HB Roy Helu. Helu often saw stacked fronts and was unable to generate much offense on the ground. However, by focusing on Helu, the Tigers left their defense wide open to the Nebraska passing attack. QB Zac Lee rose to the occasion and had a career day against the Tigers by throwing for over 450 yards with 5 TDs. On defense, the Huskers had a tough time stopping QB Blaine Gabbert but the Tigers let the Huskers off the hook by failing to convert on key third downs throughout the game. With the primary competition in the Big XII North (KSU and Mizzou) out of the way, the Huskers can focus on improving as a team in order to upset Texas for the conference title.

    Stats - Nebraska

    QB Zac Lee - 28/39 - 459 Yards - 5/1
    HB Roy Helu - 26 Rushes - 79 Yards

    WR Niles Paul - 3 Receptions - 111 Yards - 1 TD

    Week 10

    #16 Nebraska - 54
    Iowa State - 7

    The Huskers dominated both sides of the ball and walk away from Ames with an easy win over perennial doormat ISU. The big news from this game is that QB Zac Lee was hurt in the first quarter and will miss 2 weeks minimum. However, if this week's game was any indication, the Huskers shouldn't miss a beat because QB Taylor Martinez was phenomenal in relief of Lee. HB Roy Helu continued to run all over the Big XII competition, this time amassing over 150 yards on 21 carries. WR Mike McNeil, a converted TE, hauled in 3 TD passes from Martinez in route to a career game. On the defensive side of the ball, Pierre Allen is making a strong case for All-American honors. Against the Cyclones, the senior DE tallied 3 sacks and made QB Austen Arnaud's job a joyless experience. Next week, the Huskers (minus Zac Lee) take on the Kansas Jayhawks in Lincoln.

    Stats - Nebraska

    QB Taylor Martinez - 16/20 - 329 Yards - 3/0
    HB Roy Helu - 21 Rushes - 184 Yards - 2 TDs

    #16 Nebraska - 54
    Kansas - 0

    Nebraska notches its first shutout of the season in front of yet another sold out crowd in Lincoln against the Kansas Jayhawks. The much-maligned defense played a magnificent game and gave the Jayhawks little opportunity for success. Kansas threw everything it could at the Huskers but to no avail as the Jayhawks managed a mere 3 First Downs for the entire game. QB Taylor Martinez, filling in for the injured Zac Lee, continued to play great football and threw for over 300 yards. On the ground, the Huskers had no problems moving the chains as 2 backs went for over 100 yards. Next up, the Huskers head south to face the Texas A&M Aggies.

    QB Taylor Martinez - 17/23 - 301 Yards - 4/1

    Week 12

    #14 Nebraska - 63
    #20 Texas A&M - 13

    Nebraska took to the road in week 12 for a game in College Station against the Aggies. Although A&M came out firing and jumped to a 7-0 lead, the Huskers' talent won out in the end as Nebraska cruised to a huge win. Roy Helu continued to dominate conference foes, gaining 139 yards on the ground against a physical Aggie defense. Zac Lee returned from injury and played decent football but looked rusty after 2 weeks away from the field. On defense, MLB Will Compton led the way with 13 tackles, while SS PJ Smith aided to the cause with 11 tackles and a defensive score. Next week, the Huskers close out their regular season schedule at home against the hated Buffaloes.

    Week 13 - Rivalry Game

    #13 Nebraska - 63
    Colorado - 0

    Well folks, they don't call the day after Thanksgiving "Black Friday" for nothing. Black Friday was an apt description of today's game which the Colorado Buffaloes can only hope to soon erase from their memories. The Huskers played by far their best game of the season, while Colorado played uninspired, and the end result was a 63 point thrashing by the Huskers in front of a bloodthirsty crowd at Lincoln Memorial Stadium. The Blackshirts earned their nickname today, as they held Colorado to 13 yards total offense - OUCH! Junior DT Jared Crick probably played his way out of Nebraska today by amassing 4 sacks to raise his total for the season to 12. This writer believes that Peyton Manning pulled a sick joke on the Buffaloes and decided to don a red #5 jersey for the Huskers, because we have never seen Zac Lee play even close to this level in his career. For the game "Lee" was 16/17 for 270 yards with 2 TD passes. With Brandon Saine on the mend, HB Roy Helu took over the top spot in rushing yardage by running for 176 yards and 5 scores. What a game for Nebraska! With three weeks off until the Big XII championship game, Coach Pelini will have to keep his team focused and ready to clash with the Longhorns.

    Conference Championship Game

    #11 Nebraska - 23
    #13 Texas - 14

    After a years of disappointment, Nebraskans can finally let out a collective sigh of relief. The Cornhuskers won its first Big XII title in over a decade by defeating the Texas Longhorns in front of a hostile crowd in Dallas. Going into this game, these two teams appeared to be going in opposite directions. Nebraska, after starting the year 3-3, had won 6 games in a row while playing its best football of the season over the past month. Texas, on the other hand, started off 10-0 and in good position to secure a BCS title game berth before losing 2 straight to close out its regular season schedule. Although Texas came out and hung an easy 7 on the Huskers to start the game, the Nebraska defense regained its composure and held Texas scoreless until the fourth quarter. On the other side of the ball, Texas stacked the defensive front to thwart All-Amercian Roy Helu and challenged QB Zac Lee to beat them through the air. Lee did just that by completing 17 of 19 passes with a score and no turnovers. Despite the play of Lee, Nebraska often settled for field goals and kept the Longhorns in prime position to pull off the win. Nebraska's fortunes would change late in the third quarter when, up 13-7, CB Alfonzo Dennard intercepted a Garrett Gilbert pass and returned it inside the 20 yard line. A couple of plays later, Helu would punch it in on a sweep and extend the Huskers lead to 20-7 in the fourth. Texas fought back and scored a TD but Nebraska responded with a field goal to ice the game by making it a 2 possession game with under 2 minutes to play.

    Stats - NU

    #10 Nebraska - 54
    #9 Boise State - 7

    Nebraska ends its season on a high note by laying waste to WAC powerhouse Boise State in Tempe. Going into this game, a couple of commentators had speculated that Nebraska would be unable to check the high powered Boise State offense. These worries were well founded, as QB Kellen Moore has sliced apart WAC defenses with the precision of a surgeon. However, against the Huskers, the heralded QB struggled mightily - completing only 6 passes for the entire game. Moore's poor output can be attributed to a great performance by the Nebraska secondary - which blanketed the Bronco receivers all game long. To make matters worse, All-American DE Pierre Allen played an excellent game, tallying 3 sacks and a safety. On offense, the Cornhuskers fed the ball to All-American Roy Helu who responded with 178 yards on the ground. When the Huskers did pass, Zac Lee kept his composure and frustrated the Bronco defense with short passing game that was highly effective. Nebraska ends 2010 with a 9 game winning streak. Although the Huskers will probably lose too much talent to make a run at the 2011 national title, the results of the past 2 months confirm that the the Huskers are back!

    #5 Nebraska - 34
    #9 Florida - 31

    Lets cut to the chase - the Huskers have had this game circled on their calendars since the 2011 schedule was released. Last year, the Huskers traveled down to Gainesville and were humbled by the speed of the Gators. This game started off well for Nebraska, as Matthew May intercepted a pass and took it to the house for a TD. However, the Gators came to Lincoln ready to play and kept pace with the Huskers throughout the game. Florida scored late in the 4th to tie up the score at 31, but Cody Green was able to drive the length of the field and set up the game winning field goal to give Nebraska a huge win early in the season. Although the Huskers gave up plenty of passing yardage, they did hold Jeff Demps to 46 yards rushing.

    Nebraska survives a tough game against an unranked Wolverine team and improves to 3-0. Michigan jumped to a 10-0 lead and looked poised to pull off the upset until it lost its starting QB and HB for the game. This allowed the Huskers to get back into the game and take a 16-13 lead late in the game. Michigan responded with a drive of their own to tie up the game at 16 but, as in the previous game, Cody Green drove Nebraska down the field and the Huskers kicked the game winning field goal.

    #2 Nebraska - 45
    #9 Ohio State - 42

    Nebraska heads on the road and comes out a winner in week 4. OSU jumped to a 21-7 lead thanks to a defensive TD off an interception. However, the Huskers have proved their resilience over the past 2 weeks and were far from willing to give up. Cody Green took it upon himself to get Nebraska back into this game and moved the offense up and down the field against a talented OSU defense. Green had a career game, passing for 481 yards and 3 scores. The Huskers rode this offensive explosion to take a 10 point lead into the fourth quarter. Although OSU scored late to cut the lead to 3, it was unable to recover the onside kick and the Huskers emerged the victor.

    Nebraska wins big at home against the 19th ranked Aggies. Nebraska was led by Heisman hopeful Cody Green, who threw for 6 TDs against a blitz-happy Aggie defense. Green's main target, fellow Sophomore Ben Cotton, had a career day by hauling in 4 TDs and accumulating 192 yards. On defense, Jason Ankrah pressured the Aggies all game long and tallied 4 sacks and a forced fumble. Easy win for the Huskers but next week will be no easy task. To stay in the national title hunt, Nebraska must travel to Austin and defeat a Longhorn team aiming for revenge.

    Week 9

    #2 Nebraska - 35
    #6 Texas - 38

    Nebraska entered this game with a #2 ranking because the team had shown a knack for winning the close games in 2011. The Huskers defeated Florida, Ohio State, and Michigan by a field goal in each contest. Thus it was only appropriate for Nebraska to lose by a field goal in this contest. Although Nebraska jumped out to a 7-0 lead, Texas owned the first half and built a 14 point lead due to some uncharacteristic mistakes by Heisman hopeful Cody Green. Down by 2 scores on the road in the second half, the Huskers fought back valiantly to tie up the game late in the fourth. In the end, Nebraska's defense failed to take advantage of a poor decision by Texas QB Garrett Gilbert and Texas was able to move into field goal range and kick the game winning score. Although this loss hurts the Husker's national title chances, Nebraska will get its chance at revenge and repeat as a Big XII champs in a couple of weeks down in Dallas.

    Week 10

    #6 Nebraska - 55
    Kansas - 19

    Life goes on. One week after losing a close game to Texas, Nebraska wins a sloppy game against Kansas on the road. Although Nebraska moved the ball all game long, offensive miscues and blown coverages on defense kept the Jayhawks within striking distance for three quarters. The play of the game occurred late in the third. Down by 14 and looking to cut the score to 7, KU QB Kale Pick (shitty name for a QB) lived up to his name by throwing an interception in the endzone which was returned 103 yards for a Nebraska score. Next week, the Huskers host the dirtbags from Kansas State.

    Week 11 - Rivalry Game

    #7 Nebraska - 41
    Kansas State - 10

    Today's game was a tale of two halves. In the first half, Kansas State traded blows with the Huskers and looked poised to upset the heavy favorite. Down 10-7 with a minute in the second quarter, K-State QB Klein missed a wide open receiver in the endzone so the Wildcats had to settle for the tying field goal. We can only imagine the halftime speech Coach Bo Pelini gave to his squad, as the Huskers came out swinging in the third quarter. QB Cody Green, who gave an inconsistent effort in the first half, was lights out for the remainder of the game and put K-State at too much of a disadvantage to mount a comeback. Although the uneven effort must concern Coach Pelini, he will surely take the win over the alternative. Nebraska has two weeks to prepare for its last regular season game of the year at Colorado.

    Week 13 - Rivalry Game

    #6 Nebraska - 48
    Colorado - 31

    Nebraska wraps up its regular season by defeating arch rival Colorado in Boulder. Although the Huskers struggled moving the ball on the ground, QB Cody Green picked up the slack on offense and had a productive game. The defense had a tough time containing the Buffaloes but came up with a couple of big plays to secure the victory. Next up, the Huskers travel down to Dallas to play the Texas Longhorns in the Big XII Championship game.

    Stats - NU

    QB Cody Green - 16/25 - 248 Yards - 3/1 (55 Yards Rushing)
    HB Rex Burkhead - 23 Rushes - 57 Yards - 2 TDs
    WR Khiry Cooper - 4 Receptions - 86 Yards - 1 TD
    TE Kyler Reed - 3 Receptions - 30 Yards - 2 TDs
    DT Jared Crick - 2 Sacks
    FS Eric Hagg - Fumble Recovery for TD
