Nebraska had more than one defining moment against Kansas State.
Lincoln Journal Star
Defensively, the Huskers may have played their best game ever, according
to Coach Tom Osborne. The key play may have been the first of the game.
Nebraska was called for being offsides before the first play. Then, on the
next play, Terrell Farley blitzed and sacked KSU quarterback Brian Kavanagh
for a 4-yard loss. ''It was all downhill from there for them,'' NU cornerback
Eric Stokes said.
Offensively, NU arose with a classic 17-play, 80-yard scoring drive that
ended with Ahman Green scoring on an 8-yard run on fourth down. Quarterback
Scott Frost hit 3 of 4 passes for 34 yards, Green ran five times for 18
yards and caught a shovel pass for 13 yards. Freshman DeAngelo Evans rushed
three times for 13 yards.
''That long drive in the second quarter was a good one and gave our offense
a shot in the arm,'' Tom Osborne said.
The drive was NU's longest of the season and ate up almost seven minutes.
