Nebraska-Fresno State wasn’t the prettiest game to watch for one half. For the most part Nebraska tried to run a bastardized version of the UCLA game plan. Heavy, diverse run game with a substantial role for Tommy Armstrong’s legs. A key penalty, plus a DPE fumble, killed what otherwise could have been a productive scoring first half.
In the second half, Nebraska made some nice adjustments and generally cleaned up the mental mistakes. When they did, Nebraska owned Fresno State’s front 7 with a large helping of extra tight ends. Let’s see how the Husker offense did it over their 63 offensive plays.
