Last game: 35-21 win vs. Indiana
Next game: Oct. 7 @ Rutgers

Nebraska football seemed like they needed that week off last week before taking on the Hoosiers in a game that totaled 23 penalty flags and 203 penalty yards. The Cornhuskers had a great showing offensively and finally seemed to figure out the run defense, limiting the Hoosiers to just 67 rushing yards.

Now the Huskers will get on the road to take on Rutgers and Purdue in consecutive weeks with a good chance to get above .500 over the next two weeks. After changing head coaches to start the season, Nebraska has a real chance to turn their season around with Casey Thompson and Trey Palmer offensively carrying the load.
