CHAMPAIGN, Ill. – The Huskers (3-2, 2-0 Big Ten) remained undefeated in conference play with a big win over Illinois (2-2, 0-1 Big Ten) on the road Friday night. Twitter had some thoughts throughout.

Shaved my goatee off for the first time since 1994! Don't worry it was just for a few weeks. You like, yes or no? I myself am debating. pic.twitter.com/iV1i720PqM

Former Husker Josh Mitchell with a very accurate depiction of wideout De’Mornay Pierson-El following his 45-yard touchdown.

Two things. First, I will love on anything that is Friends-related. Second, yeah, pretty much.

On Lee’s only questionable throw of the night, his tight end, Tyler Hoppes, broke up what was a surefire interception from Illinois while falling down.
Give Tyler Hoppes a blackshirt.

I am all here for ball boys taunting opposing players after said players get stiff-armed into oblivion.

Breaking news out of Lincoln, interim athletic director Dave Rimington has decided to extend head coach Mike Riley through 2032 after watching the Nebraska-Illinois game.
If this Nebraska-Illinois game has taught me anything it’s that it’s probably time for another Mike Riley extension.

This wasn’t from the game, but it started circulating after the Huskers took their first lead of the game. The Nebraska family lost an important member this week. I didn’t know Brian but I’ve seen just an outpouring of love towards him and the family he leaves behind and know he’s going to be missed.

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.
