No doubt the MVP for this Husker team is running back Ameer Abdullah. He leads Big Ten in rushing, but as you hear from offensive lineman Brent Qvale, seeing a player like Abduallah every day, makes it fun to come to play. Another player singing high praises for Abdullah is quarterback Tommy Armstrong.
Armstrong is receiving some high praise himself. Offensive coordinator Tim Beck said when it comes to Armstrong, he has the “it” factor that he carries with confidence in each game he plays in. Beck also talked about the Michigan State defense that leads the nation in rushing defense, pass efficiency defense, total defense and opponent third-down percentage, but was encouraged by the offense’s late-game performance in a come-from-behind win at Michigan last Saturday.
