Huskers 'Turn a Corner' in 44-8 Win Over Northern Illinois

September 15, 2019

A week ago, head coach Scott Frost’s play-calling was questioned. In an overtime situation where seven points meant a win and failing to score meant going home disappointed, he played it safe on his first two calls, saying he didn’t want to put the ball in the air and risk an interception. 

Fast-forward to Saturday night and the Huskers have just given up a safety. It’s 23-5 and Nebraska has dominated the game in a number of ways and yet nothing feels comfortable about an 18-point lead.
