Nebraska football needed a win to start getting back on track and the Huskers got it, but this team’s problems aren’t solved just yet.
Nebraska was able to get a much-needed win, but things weren’t exactly perfect when the Huskers took on Fordham. From a couple fumbles to a slow start, things were rough at times for Nebraska before the Huskers eventually ran away with the game.
And sure, they still ran away with the game, but the Huskers have a long way to go before things are fixed.
The Huskers, somehow, fumbled the ball a total of four times when they faced Fordham. Cam Taylor-Britt, Logan Smothers, Brody Belt, and Adrian Martinez all fumbled the ball. The Rams were able to recover two of those fumbles.
Nebraska can’t afford to keep making these sorts of errors.
On the note of that slow start, while the Huskers ended up winning the game 52-7, the Nebraska football team got off to a really slow start. Nebraska only scored seven points in the first quarter. The Huskers didn’t jump out to a decent lead until they scored a couple touchdowns with four minutes remaining in the first half.
Nebraska will return to action when the Huskers face off against Buffalo. If the Huskers can carry over the momentum that they got going against Fordham then they should win that game as well.
And that game will also give Scott Frost and the Nebraska football team some more time to get things figured out as the Huskers try to salvage this season.
