Tale of the Tape: Defending Long Runs

November 5, 2016
1,411

Nebraska's defense overall has been quite stout this season, surrendering fewer than 19 points per game this season. However, there is one big weakness that the Huskers will have to clean up if they hope to have any chance at the Horsehoe against Ohio State: limiting long runs.

Through eight games, Nebraska is in the bottom 15 in the country in runs of 30 or more yards allowed, while Ohio State is in the top 15 in runs of 20 yards or more. If the Huskers don't improve, the Buckeyes could run away from them on Saturday night.
