Bay Area Huskers E-News 10/21/11

Hey Bay Area Husker Fans!

Sorry for the late delivery this week.  It was nice to have a bye week, but now I’ve got more stuff to pass along and what seems like less time to gather it…better get with it!

What a comeback!  As the announcers said in the game, this was the largest deficit (21 points) comeback in Husker history!

We only need one more win to become Bowl Eligible, so this week’s game against an old rival, Minnesota, could be the one to make the difference.  Of course there are 6 more games to play so its always better to look on the bright side and hope for an 11-1 season and a rematch against Wisconsin in the Big 10 Championship game.  Oh well, gotta do what the coaches always say…take ‘em one at a time!  Go Huskers, Beat The Gophers!

Go Big Red, White and Blue,

Watch Parties:
All watch sites will be able to pick up the game this Saturday.  ABC is broadcasting the game regionally, and ESPN2 will cover those areas that televise another game.  Kickoff is at 12:30 Pacific Time so get there early, grab some lunch and cheer on the Huskers!


Game 7: Nebraska at Minnesota
Oct. 22, 2011 | TCF Bank Stadium
Minneapolis, Minn. | 12:30 p.m. Pacific Time

The Matchup

After a bye week at the midpoint of its 2011 schedule, Nebraska begins the second half of its regular season this Saturday afternoon when the Huskers travel to Minneapolis to take on the Golden Gophers. The game from Minnesota's TCF Bank Stadium will be televised regionally on ABC with kickoff set for shortly after 12:30 p.m. PT. The game can be seen on ESPN2 in markets not carrying the contest on ABC affiliates.

The Series

Nebraska has played Minnesota more times than any other Big Ten opponent. Saturday's game will be the 52nd all-time meeting between the two schools, but the first since 1990. Nebraska has won 14 straight in the series, but Minnesota holds a 28-21-2 overall edge.


Lincoln, Neb. - Darkness had long since fallen, and the rain was falling steadily in Memorial Stadium on Saturday night. A hush had also fallen over the more than 85,000 strong after visiting Ohio State went up 27-6 early in the third quarter.

Then Lavonte David made arguably the biggest play of the season for the Huskers. On what appeared to be another first-down carry for Buckeye quarterback Braxton Miller, David stripped the ball and recovered a fumble that set up the Huskers' struggling offense with a short field at the OSU 23.

Two plays later, Taylor Martinez and the Big Red offense were struggling no more, as the sophomore quarterback sprinted 18 yards untouched for a touchdown to cut Ohio State's lead to 27-13 and give the NCAA-record 315th consecutive sellout crowd at Memorial Stadium reason for hope.

Within an hour, hope had turned to euphoria as Nebraska rolled to the biggest comeback in school history with a 34-27 victory over Ohio State for the Huskers' first-ever Big Ten Conference victory. NU's Homecoming win moved the 14th-ranked Huskers to 5-1 on the season, including 1-1 in the Big Ten. Ohio State slipped to 3-3 overall and 0-2 in the conference.

David, who led the Huskers with 13 tackles, played one of the hero roles for Nebraska, while the sophomore quarterback Martinez and junior I-back Rex Burkhead played heroic roles on offense.

Martinez and Burkhead joined forces for the 69th dual-100-yard rushing effort in school history, despite the NU offense struggling to just 37 rushing yards in the first half. Burkhead, who finished with 119 yards and a score on a career-high 26 carries, rushed for 96 yards in the fourth quarter alone. Martinez finished with 102 yards and a score on just 17 carries, including 93 yards on 12 carries after halftime.

Martinez also completed a season-high 16 passes on 22 attempts for 191 yards and two touchdowns to finish the night with 293 total yards. Burkhead added a career-high five catches for 59 yards and a score.

On the Blackshirts' defensive series following David's forced fumble, linebacker Sean Fisher made a big play by taking on a Buckeye blocker to stop Miller. The hit also sent Miller, who had rushed 10 times for 91 yards including several key third-down conversions on scrambling runs, to the sideline with an injury.

With Miller on the sideline, Joe Bauserman and the Buckeye offense stalled. The Huskers got another defensive stop, and Martinez pulled the Big Red within a touchdown by finding Quincy Enunwa on a 36-yard scoring strike to cut the OSU lead to 27-20 with 1:44 left in the third quarter.

The Blackshirts continued to stifle Bauserman and the Buckeyes, and the Huskers tied the score on Burkhead's career-long 30-yard touchdown reception from Martinez with 7:44 to play.

Converted wide receiver Stanley Jean-Baptiste then made the biggest play of his Husker career in his first appearance as a cornerback, producing a leaping interception to give Nebraska a shot at the victory.

Martinez and Burkhead capitalized again, as Burkhead capped NU's four-play, 78-yard game-winning
drive with a 17-yard scoring burst down the Ohio State sideline with 5:10 left in the game.

The Buckeyes were unable to mount any offensive threat, and the Husker offense ran out the clock before taking a knee at the OSU 24 to end the game.

Ohio State struck first, marching 56 yards on 13 plays in 7:44 culminating with Drew Basil's 41-yard field goal to make it 3-0 Buckeyes with 7:16 left in the first quarter.

Nebraska answered with Brett Maher's 50-yard field goal just 1:52 later, which was setup by Ameer Abdullah's 38-yard kickoff return.

Ohio State closed the quarter by driving 80 yards in seven plays, capped by Braxton Miller's 32-yard touchdown pass to Jake Stoneburner to carry a 10-3 lead into the second quarter.

The Buckeyes firmed their grip on the lead with Carlos Hyde's 63-yard touchdown run to score on a one-play drive and give OSU a 17-3 lead with 12:46 left in the half.

Maher trimmed to the Husker deficit to 17-6 with a 34-yard field goal with 2:44 left. After the Blackshirts forced a three-and-out by the Buckeyes, the Huskers threw an interception on a deep route with 15 seconds left in the half.

Ohio State capitalized on Basil's 35-yard field goal as time expired in the half to send the Buckeyes to the locker room with a 20-6 advantage.

OSU had 246 total yards at the half, including 178 rushing yards, while NU had just 117 yards, including just 37 on the ground. Martinez completed 10-of-13 passes in the half for 80 yards, including 10 straight to open the game, but did throw one interception.

Miller completed 4-of-6 passes for 68 yards for the Buckeyes and rushed seven times for 79 yards in the opening half.

Nebraska finished the game with 423 yards of total offense, including 232 rushing yards and 191 passing. Ohio State managed 351 total yards, but just 105 in the second half. OSU finished with 243 rushing yards, but just 65 after halftime.

Nebraska will enjoy the weekend off before returning to Big Ten Conference road action at Minnesota on Saturday, Oct. 22.

Nebraska Athletic Director Tom Osborne says the Huskers' 34-27 triumph over Ohio State last weekend was the school's greatest comeback ever, and he wants to make sure Big Red fans get credit for their role in the outcome. "It looked pretty grim early in the third quarter," Osborne as he prepared to host his monthly radio program Tuesday night on the Huskers Sports Network.

"We realized it (coming back) could happen, but the odds seemed to be slipping away that we would get back in the game," Osborne said. "Then we got that fumble recovery when Lavonte David stripped the ball, followed by a couple of quick touchdowns. All of a sudden, the momentum shifted. The crowd got back into it, and it became a fairly electric environment."

The crowd helped the Huskers keep fighting. "We have great fans, and we need to acknowledge that and commend them for their loyalty," Osborne said, adding that the Huskers are going to need that same fever-pitch level of support as Nebraska competes to win the Legends Division and a chance to play in the first-ever Big Ten Conference Championship Game in Indianapolis.

"There's a lot to play for, and we're going to need everybody's support," Osborne said.

"What we can't have is a lot of division. You don't want to see a lot of nit-picking. I mean, you can always find something wrong. It seems like we've finally gotten to the point where we're obsessed with the defense or the offense or the passing game or the kicking game or this individual or that individual. We can't spend all of our time talking about those things. There are so many other things that go into winning."


A total of 30 former Huskers were on an NFL roster this weekend for week six of the season. The group was led by former linebacker Scott Shanle, who finished with six tackles and two PBU's for the New Orleans Saints in their loss to Tampa Bay.

In one of the more anticipated games of the weekend, Ndamukong Suh and Kyle Vanden Bosch couldn't get the Detroit Lions over the hump against the San Francisco 49ers, falling by a score of 25-19. Both Suh and Vanden Bosch recorded two tackles, while Vanden Bosch also tallied a sack for seven yards.

Roy Helu touched the ball four times against division rival Philadelphia, gaining six yards on two carries and 11 yards on two receptions for the Washington Redskins. Alex Henery was perfect for Philadelphia, connecting on both field goals (28, 24) and both extra point attempts in the Eagles' 20-13 victory.



Nebraska Head Coach Bo Pelini has issued the following statement on senior defensive tackle Jared Crick:

"After further examination on Tuesday, it was determined that Jared Crick has a torn pectoral muscle and he will be out for the remainder of the season.

"I feel extremely bad for Jared. He is a young man who has represented this program in a first-class manner throughout his career. He made an unselfish decision to come back to Nebraska for his senior year and earn his degree, which he did this summer. He has also been a leader on and off the field and a young man who has made a positive impact in our community. Jared has a bright future in front of him on the field at the professional level. I know he will bounce back from this, and become a stronger player and person.

"It is a tough blow for our football team to lose a player of Jared's caliber, but we have players that are capable of stepping up and filling the void."

Crick ranks eighth on the Nebraska career sacks list with 20, including 9.5 in both 2009 and 2010. He also has 35 career tackles for loss and 167 career tackles. Crick was a first-team All-Big 12 selection in both 2009 and 2010.

From the Colmbus (Ohio)

Rob Oller's observations on yesterday's game:

The game at hand

Short-attention-span synopsis: Speechless. Brax down and out. Boz up and (way) over. Silver bullets early, BBs late. Nebraska defense does quick-change act from Black Skirts back to Blackshirts.

Pregame buzz: One word: Gulp. After watching what happened to the offense last week against Michigan State, it wasn't entirely clear whether the Buckeyes could move the ball against the Little Sisters of the Poor, much less Nebraska. But nobody expected the Cornhuskers to come out playing like "nones." Then Braxton Miller grabbed his right leg, and the Huskers grabbed the game.

Worth the trip? True, you can see mile after mile of cornfields without leaving Ohio, but for a while, it was quite the treat for traveling fans to watch their Buckeyes shuck the Huskers. Then things changed, and those happy travelers became horrified Children of the Corn.

PENNY POST CARDS FROM NEBRASKA….a visit down memory lane…

Check out the post cards from your home county!



With Crick out, DTs try to fill void
The promising backups who have helped transform Nebraska's defensive tackle spot into one of the team's deepest position groups will now be relied upon to collectively replace a star. Defensive tackle Jared Crick will miss the remainder of his senior season after tearing a pectoral muscle, NU coach Bo Pelini announced in a statement Wednesday.

McKewon: A huge win, and a great opportunity
Like manna from heaven, Lavonte David's strip-and-fumble recovery against Ohio State swung Nebraska's fortunes in a game — and season — as much as any single play in recent Husker memory. It triggered the biggest comeback in school history. It gave Taylor Martinez the chance to engineer that comeback. And it juiced a Memorial Stadium crowd like it hasn't been since 2009 Oklahoma.

Barfknecht: Peevish postgame does NU no favors
It's time, again, to address the Nebraska football program's elephant in the room. Or, more accurately, the guy at the podium, head coach Bo Pelini. On Saturday night, after the biggest comeback in Husker history and an incredibly important win over Ohio State, Pelini short-answered the media and acted peeved that a World-Herald writer had the gall in a column last Friday to analyze his coaching and his quarterback's play

David sets tone on sideline, then forces key turnover
Before the historic, unforgettable, rain-soaked comeback in Nebraska's first Big Ten home game — before quarterback Taylor Martinez rose above the boos to a career-defining moment — there was No. 4, preaching hope. Ohio State had just taken a 27-6 third-quarter lead over the Huskers. Defensive coordinator Carl Pelini threw up his arms in frustration, then crouched on the turf with his miniature white board, furiously scribbling solutions.

54 minutes to save a season
It was 9:16 p.m. An historic night at Memorial Stadium was turning into a disaster. The Huskers were staring at another embarrassment in prime time, an 0-2 Big Ten start and countless national punch lines. What had gone so wrong? And where would a once-promising season go from here? Ohio State led 27-6 with 8 minutes left in the third quarter. It was third-and-5 at the Buckeyes 17-yard line. Braxton Miller took the shotgun snap.

TCU accepted an invitation to join the Big 12 on Monday night, seizing an opportunity to be a part of a conference with natural geographic rivals despite the league’s recent instability. The board of trustees unanimously approved the move and Chancellor Victor Boschini Jr. made the expected announcement in front a packed room of more than 200 people.

* Nebraska has record comeback in 34-27 win over Ohio State

   Ohio State lost its quarterback, lost its cool, lost its lead and
   then lost to No. 14 Nebraska as the Huskers claimed a 34-27
   comeback-victory over the Buckeyes in their first Big Ten conference
   home game.  So: Was this a break out game for the Huskers, or did NU
   get lucky when the Buckeyes' quarterback got hurt?

* GOP redistricting worked: Obama less likely to carry 2nd District in 2012

   Nebraska’s Republican-dominated Legislature succeeded in making it
   a lot tougher for President Obama to compete for one of Nebraska’s
   five electoral votes in 2012,  according to new poll data.

* Ohio State fans say they got a great welcome in Nebraska

   After Saturday's game at Nebraska, Ohio State alumni, fans and even a
   former player and Heisman Trophy winner all agree — it's great to
   have the Cornhuskers in the Big Ten conference.  This story from
   Columbus by Pat Brennan quotes some Ohio State fans who visited
   Lincoln - and love the experience.

* Governor wants assurance Nebraska can determine Keystone XL Pipeline route

   Take a deep breath. Now, try to follow Gov. Dave Heineman's latest on
   the proposed Keystone XL pipeline, that would haul crude sand-tar oil
   from Alberta in Canada to the Gulf Coast of Texas.
