Oh, and now Nebraska wants to score, too?
Thanks to a couple of big plays — a 33-yard sprint up the middle by Rex Burkhead and a nifty 24-yard catch and run by Niles Paul — the Cornhuskers got the ball moving down the field, and managed to get an Alex Henery field goal to tie this game up at 6-6 with under nine minutes left in the fourth quarter.
Some things don't change, though: Bo Pelini is haranguing the officials once again, this time after a flag for potential pass interference on a third down was picked up, forcing the Huskers to kick a field goal for a tie rather than try to run it in with a goal-to-go set of downs.
It hasn't helped Pelini yet tonight, but the fiery coach may just be trying to make deposits in some sort of passion bank, hoping for a withdrawal later. Me, I'd be worried about trying to get my anemic offense untracked. But I don't get paid to coach.
