    They do. It's never an easy place to play. Pat Fitzgerald gets a lot of effort out of his guys.

    Should have been a 3 score win. It seems like a broken record saying we have to clean stuff up.

    Win and move on. Goal of being 7-0 and heading to Madison is intact.

    Coach Riley always great interviews...sound bites. Love the teaching opportunity response, "...need to take better care of the ball down near the end zone." HCMR said it all when he said that those two scoring opportunities could've "...saved us a lot of the anxiety at the end."

    4-0 Plenty to clean up, but a W against a team that has a knack for kicking NU in the nards is a good thing.

    Here's the biggest shocker ... Nebraska with zero 4th quarter points.

    Left a lot of points on the field with bad mistakes. But . . . winning when you are struggling like that is key. Wouldn't have happened last year. Move on and try to keep cleaning things up.

    The "run the damn ball" community should be pretty happy through our first four games. DL's gameplans and dedication to stick with the run even when the going gets tough is nice. I think it'll pay off more and more as the season progresses.

    Great win!!! For a second I was worried it was going to be like 2009 Iowa State (when that invisible force field kept stopping us from carrying the ball into the end zone), but the Huskers overcame it! GO BIG RED!

    I agree. Seems like DL is really more in tune with his players' strengths...and how/when to use them.

    One game at a time, but a 7-0 start is looking likely. Wisconsin is looking tough, but their schedule is brutal leading up to our game.

    Nebraska Post-Game Notes

    Nebraska at Northwestern, Sept. 24, 2016

    4 ––Nebraska improved to 4-0 for the second time in three seasons (2014) and this marks the fourth time Nebraska has started 4-0 since 2010.

    • Nebraska’s win improved the Huskers to 4-2 in Big Ten openers.

    • Nebraska won its first Big Ten road game for the first time since 2013 at Purdue.

    • Nebraska’s victory improved the Huskers to 7-3 all-time against Northwestern, including a 4-2 record against the Wildcats as Big Ten foes.

    • Nebraska’s win marked the fifth time in six games the road team has won the Nebraska-Northwestern game, dating back to 2011.

    132–– Quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr. rushed times for a career-high 132 yards in the game, bettering his 131 rushing yards vs. McNeese State in 2014. Tonight’s game marked Armstrong’s second career 100-yard rushing game. He rushed for 95 yards last week against Oregon.

    1,500 –– With his 132 rushing yards, Armstrong increased his career rushing total to 1,558. He is the seventh Nebraska quarterback with 1,500 career rushing yards.

    9,000 –– In addition to his 132 rushing yards, Armstrong passed for 246 yards and one touchdown and accounted for 378 yards of total offense. Armstrong increased

    his career total offense to 9,210 and became the second Husker with 9,000 career yards of total offense. He trails only Taylor Martinez’s school-record 10,233 career yards of total offense.

    • Armstrong topped 300 yards of total offense for the 12th time in his career, continuing to extend his own Nebraska record.

    200––The Huskers are now 7-0 under Head Coach Mike Riley when rushing for at least 200 yards, including 3-0 in 2016.

    Langsdorf had a great day calling plays. Clean up some of the execution and NU wins going away.
