Nebraska’s defense looked pretty good most of the game, their offense had one really good drive, but suffered from turnovers and penalties. They may have lost one of their best receivers tonight, we’ll have to see what the injury report is like. Fortunately, Illinois played a lot worse, and though Nebraska gave them numerous chances to get back in the game, they couldn’t complete another drive.
We had a chat room running, one participant called it nearly 4 hours of mediocre offense.
Nebraska has a week off and then plays Northwestern, might be a hard game to predict. Which teams’ players will show up ready to play?
Illinois’s offense looked awful most of the night, one drive that failed at the 1 foot line and a TD drive that showed some signs of life, but not enough. Might be a rough season in Urbana.
