Huskers miss several opportunities in the second half losing 21-13
EVANSTON, Ill. (WOWT) - Second half turnovers cost the Huskers in a 21-13 loss at Northwestern.
Off the forced bye, there was what appeared to be some rust for Nebraska. It took Nebraska a quarter to get going against 2-0 Northwestern.
Northwestern opened up with a touchdown on its first drive, Drake Anderson ran it in from 41 yards out, his longest of the year. The Wildcats took an early 7-0 lead.
The Huskers had a great second quarter with two Myles Farmer interceptions. Myles made his first career start after Cam Taylor-Britt and Deontai Williams out for the first half following targeting calls against Ohio State. One of those interceptions led to a Dedrick Mills three-yard touchdown run.
The Huskers also added two Connor Culp field goals in the quarter.
Northwestern scored the only touchdown in the third quarter and Adrian Martinez threw an interception in the endzone. The seventh of the year for the Wildcats.
Adrian was pulled after that play, Luke McCaffrey took over. After another Northwestern touchdown Nebraska had the ball inside the five with six minutes. Luke McCaffrey threw a pass over the middle, it was deflected and picked off. A second Northwestern interception deep in their end in the second half.
That was it, Nebraska moves to 0-2, Northwestern improves to 3-0. Huskers at home against Penn State next Saturday.
