A big win for the defense as the Huskers handled Southern Miss 56-13. The Blackshirts held the Golden Eagles to 284 yards, only 62 on the ground.
On offense, Taylor Martinez was 15-of-23 for 170 yards and three touchdowns, including a 26-yard touchdown pass to Sam Burtch. Taylor took the rest of the night off and that led to the debut of Tommy Armstrong. He didn’t throw the ball, but he carried four times for 23 yards. Armstrong had Southern Miss as one of his final schools.
