On the off chance you haven't rage quit and thrown your phone, iPad or laptop at a wall yet and shut off all access to the internet, here's the top tweets from the game to try and give you a little humor in these dark times.
There was this after quarterback Tanner Lee tossed his second pick-six of the first quarter.

While Husker nation was melting, four-star wide receiver commit Joshua Moore offered a saving grace.
Too real, Kevin.
Having Zac Taylor in attendance doesn't mean Tanner Lee needs to take a Zac Taylor-like beating #Huskers

This was tweeted before the game ended. Hilary can see the future too, apparently.
A lady in our section tried cheering "Go Huskers!" but coughed half way through and that's the best metaphor for this game I can think of.

After Lee scored on a quarterback keeper for the Huskers’ first points of the game, former quarterback Tommy Armstrong with the wheels chimed in.

Why? Because Les Miles.
Realizing the Mad Hatter is in the booth rooting for Nebraska on the broadcast kinda makes the insanity of this game more believable

David perfectly sums up the Huskers’ season to this point.
Your weekly dose of Schaefer.
All of the sudden it's a firework show for Nebraska fans.

As we all expected Jack, as we all expected.
As expected, every TD in this game is either a Tanner Lee rush or a Tanner Lee pick 6.

Finally, this from a former Nebraska kicker. Laugh through the pain Husker fans.
I just kicked footballs so I have know idea what needs changing 🙍🏼♂️

Nebraska plays Rutgers at home on Sep. 23 with the chance to get back to .500 on its season.
Derek is a newbie on the Hail Varsity staff covering Husker athletics. In college, he was best known as ‘that guy from Twitter.’ He has covered a Sugar Bowl, a tennis national championship and almost everything in between (except an NCAA men’s basketball tournament game… *tears*). In his spare time, he can be found arguing with literally anyone about sports.
