Strength in Simplicity for Huskers Run Defense Looking to Bounce Back

October 23, 2019

This season began with promise that the Huskers’ run defense, often times a significant impediment to winning games over the last few seasons, was instead going to be something to lean on in 2019. No one ran for 100 yards in the first three weeks, but more than that, Nebraska was only giving up 2.18 yards per run on the ground. 

Then Illinois ran for 6.5 yards per carry, adjusted for sacks, in Week 4. Then Ohio State ran for 7.8, again adjusted for sacks, in Week 5. Minnesota hit for 6.
