Second-half transformation not enough as Huskers fall in Oregon

Second-half transformation not enough as Huskers fall in Oregon

The Nebraska Cornhuskers' (1-1) first trip to OR since 1952 consisted of a first-half melee and a second-half clash.

It showed how far a newly installed defense still has to go.

Next week, OR takes on their last non-conference opponent in quarterback Josh Allen and the Wyoming Cowboys. The Ducks needed only three plays to score, with Herbert hitting Dillon Mitchell on a 17-yard touchdown pass for a 42-14 lead.

Colorado 37, Texas State 3: Laviska Shenault Jr. ignited lethargic Colorado with a 55-yard score when he picked up a teammate's fumble on a punt return and the host Buffaloes (2-0) rolled late over the Bobcats (1-1), who were a 35-point underdog.

OR improves to 2-0 this season with a victory against Nebraska at Autzen Stadium. "We just have to push through next time".

Tanner Lee could be the second coming of Johnny Unitas and even that wouldn't be enough to overcompensate for the opened floodgate.

Bryant rushed for gains of 25 yards and 10 yards on back-to-back plays to ignite Nebraska's ensuing series. Nebraska brought their fans and about an eighth of the Stadium was Red.

"They're pretty unflappable", Riley said.

"As disappointing as a lot of that was, we'll have a hard time watching film", Riley said. But Willie Taggart's group responded with a 35-7 scoring run that ensured its memory would be diluted. Lee finished the game with 252 yards and completed 19 of his 41 passes with three touchdowns. The current Tennessee Titans starter was photographed in a foreshadowing Heisman pose during Oregon's blowout win in 2014, which was Riley's final game in Corvallis.

Offensively, Nebraska football averages 43.0 points and 463.0 total yards, 238.0 in passing and 225.0 in rushing per game.

Instead, Ducks sophomore quarterback Justin Herbert threw touchdowns on both downs, a 32-yarder to Brenden Schooler on the first and an 8-yarder to Charles Nelson on the second, accounting for Oregon's first 14 points.

"I'm very proud of the defense, they made some very tough stands", said running back Royce Freeman.

For his part, Lee had a tepid showing. Another junior came at the top, wide receiver Stanley Morgan caught five balls for 102 yards and one score.

"We were so up and down at times", offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf said. "We have to tackle a little better". With just over two minutes remaining, the offense trotted onto the field with a chance to tie with a touchdown. "Jordan and Austin are going to be big-time players for us".

The Ducks' first-year coach described himself as a "jughead" for drawing an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty and admitted that Texas A&M's epic collapse at UCLA last Sunday was on his mind during the second half. "Everybody knows that. Then they go to the play action off of that, and their quarterback can really throw the ball".

Nebraska had a horrendous first half, falling behind, 42-14.

"I thought that they kept fighting after halftime, which was encouraging that we didn't just fold it up and run out of the stadium", Diaco said.
