Nebraska Falls To Northwestern 21-13 And Start Season 0-2

 The Nebraska Cornhuskers gave a great effort but fell short again this time by a score of 21-13 to the Northwestern Wildcats. Give Northwestern credit because in the second half they did not let the Cornhuskers score after down 13-7 at halftime. Nebraska had plenty of chances to pull this game out, but could not get the job done. Let's look at some of the problems the Cornhuskers encountered in this game.

Just like Ohio State, Nebraska had too many penalties that hurt them. Turnovers also were a problem as you must protect the ball. Adrian Martinez played three quarters and Luke McCaffery played the fourth quarter, but both quarterbacks made mistakes, so nothing has really changed in that department.

Nebraska still struggles to stretch the field. They have no wide receivers that they can count on play after play. The wide receivers we have need to be more consistent and get better separation from the defense. This would make it easier on the quarterbacks when it comes to throwing the ball.

In the end, Nebraska did not make enough plays to win this game. Nebraska played hard all game long so they have nothing to hang their heads about. They gave a great effort, but it just was not enough to win this game. Compared to last year this team has improved a lot. Scott Frost is getting this team competitive week after week and that is all you can ask.
