The Huskers laid an early knockout blow in their 55-19 win at Fresno State, jumping out to a 14-0 lead in the first three minutes and Bo Pelini talked about how that kind of took the life out of the stadium. 562 total yards including 127 of those in the first three minutes of the game. A 70 yard pass to Jordan Westerkamp and a 57 yard run by Ameer Abdullah.
Defensively, the Huskers saw a lot of passing, had to play a lot of dime coverage, which means six defensive backs which will help down the road. It was also the return of Randy Gregory, who had three tackles. Just coming back from knee surgery, really saw his first significant playing time and it was so hot out there, Pelini said Gregory battled and played well. The conditions and flow of the game made it tough for the entire team.
