Saturday night was a familiar position we’ve seen this team in before. The Huskers offense came out firing on all cylinders and then in the blink of the eye the game changes and the team ends up getting embarrassed on national TV, losing at Ohio State 63-38, in front of the largest crowd ever for a Buckeye’s home game.
At this point, Bo Pelini said what’s done is done, but if this team wants any hopes of playing for a shot at the Rose Bowl, they have to win out. This three game swing will pretty much tell the season for NU. They’re at Northwestern, they host Michigan and then travel to Michigan State.

Leading rusher Rex Burkhead injured his left knee early in the third quarter after rushing for 119 yards on 14 carries, but did not return. We’ll know more later today and this week.
The Buckeyes moved up to 8th and the Huskers went from 21st to dropping out of the top 25 following Saturday’s 68-38 loss. Michigan is back in at 25.
