And we went back even.Other than giving up an acutal pick-6 or scoop-score . . . I can't think of a much worse position for the Husker offense to put the defense in after ONE play from scrimmage to start the game than a fumble deep in your own territory. The game had barely started and our potato offense gift-wrapped the ball to IL in easy scoring range.
Doesn't matter if it should have been reviewed and overturned or not. It was a hideous, stupid turnover to start the game and I'm sure the defense could see the "here we go again" machine firing up.
