Tracking Nebraska's Defensive Participation Against Colorado

September 11, 2019

Last week we took a closer look at how Scott Frost and Troy Walters handled their offensive personnel against South Alabama. This week, we’re focusing on the defense.

Colorado may be more focused on running the ball under Mel Tucker, but the strength of the team is its passing attack and Erik Chinander was very aware of that. The Huskers opened in nickel and spent the majority of the game that way.

Discounting plays nullified by penalties, one kneel-down by the Buffaloes and the weird substitution infraction (the play counted but the Huskers had guys coming in and out during the snap so it’s hard to figure out who the 11 were supposed to be), I tracked 76 defensive snaps for Nebraska.
