Tanner Lee threw two touchdowns in first quarter … to Northern Illinois

Nebraska's Mikale Wilbon

The 2017 season has not gone well for Nebraska at all.

Saturday the Huskers were victims of a MAC attack.

However, Nebraska's lead was short-lived, as Northern Illinois quarterback Daniel Santcaterina moved the Huskies 75 yards in just six plays to put NIU back in front 21-17 with 8:52 remaining. Then he doubled down on his poor outing, throwing a 25-yard pick-six to Jawuon Johnson, which gave the Huskies a 14-0 lead over Nebraska.

Nebraska came back with 10 points in the third quarter. A home game against Rutgers next weekend should work as a soothing enough balm. Sep.

That's not the way to get a win at home.

Riley, who was given a one-year extension through the 2020 season earlier this week, has a 16-13 record with the Cornhuskers. We have to better identifying quality. "It was also evident that we just didn't really run the ball consistently, either". One alum expressed his displeasure on social media. With an average weight advantage of 42 pounds on the offensive line, Nebraska gained 85 yards rushing on 36 attempts.

Nebraska fans are starting to lose it on the transfer signal-caller. In the last two games, he has attempted 88 passes and suffered seven interceptions - one nearly every 12 attempts. Junior receiver Stanley Morgan Jr. ranks inside the top five among Big Ten players in catches (12), receiving yards (205) and receiving touchdowns (three). "That was a tough way to start".

"I want to make sure folks understand we've got to get that fixed, and we have to get heading in the right direction, and we have the right coach to do it".

"We really found something to work with after that OR game and we knew we wanted to get going from the jump", Nebraska linebacker Luke Gifford said.

In fact, the 112 yards returned the other way trumped Lee's 96 yards passing in that first quarter.

The visitors missed a 39-yard field goal and muffed a punt that Nebraska recovered at the 2-yard line to help the Huskers score their first TD. Tanner Lee is worst QB in Husker history.

Northern Illinois began the second quarter with the ball and drove all the way to the Nebraska 22-yard-line. The halftime score was the same 14-0, but the Huskers chipped away and grabbed a 17-14 lead just after the start of the fourth quarter. A scoring drive against the Blackshirts to regain the lead appeared unlikely.

Nebraska outgained Northern Illinois by 160 yards and dominated time of possession, but all three of Lee's interceptions came with heavy consequences. A pair of freshman, Patrick O'Brien and Tristan Gebbia, sit behind Lee on the depth chart.

Lee was sacked three times in the game. Northern Illinois' linebackers and secondary not only tackled well but provided sticky pass coverage.

Riley said at his weekly news conference Monday.

It was a sad performance for Mike Riley's team as they struggled on the road. We're so far from that.
