Yipee! Another strong performance by the Nebraska Cornhuskers, with a win over the Arkansas State Red Wolves. The final score of this game was a 38 to 9 victory in Memorial stadium. This was also the 299th consecutive sell out game for the Huskers in Memorial stadium. I will be fortunate enough to be able to go to the 300th consecutive sell out game on September 26th when the Huskers play Louisiana- Lafayette, this is also their homecoming game. I expect to be in a huge flood of red at this milestone game, and enjoying every minute of it.
Now back to reviewing todays game. The Huskers came out strong right on their first drive, and went down the field to score a touchdown. The Blackshirts, the Huskers defense nickname, stopped the Red Wolves on their first drive, or lack there of. The Huskers would again march down the field and score another touchdown. After this score the Huskers could have been done because their defense only allowed nine points for the entire game, and the Huskers led 14 to 0 before the end of the first quarter. The Huskers would again score a few more times, and let the Red Wolves score a touchdown, but they missed the extra point far right. Nebraska led the whole game and never looked back. Some key players of todays game for the Huskers were their quarterback, Zac Lee, who threw for four touchdowns and 340 yards, receivers, Niles Paul and Mike McNeill, who picked up some touchdowns, and lastly Ndamukong Suh, who had tackles for a loss of yards and 1.5 sacks.
For next weeks game the Huskers are going to have to travel to Number 14th ranked Virginia Tech. By the way the Cornhuskers are ranked 22nd. This will be their most difficult game so far this year because of Virginia Techs rating and because this will be their first away game. Good luck to them in their hopeful upset.
