A double reverse by the Huskers that eventually ended up in the hands of freshman De'Mornay Pearson-El. There was no gain because a Miami defender was properly positioned, but it's a play that could pay big dividends during Big Ten play.
WHAT WAS THAT?
A pass late in the third quarter by Miami quarterback Brad Kaaya went left, but the only Hurricanes anywhere close were Jon Feliciano and Sunny Odogwu. One problem: Both are offensive linemen. There were no flags for illegal men downfield or intentional grounding. Three plays later, Josh Mitchell scooped up a Miami fumble and returned it for a 57-yard touchdown.
Randy Gregory living rent-free in the head of Hurricanes offensive lineman Ereck Flowers midway through the fourth quarter. As they returned from a play that went Nebraska's way, Gregory kept clapping his hands above his head and right behind Flowers'. This eventually got to Flowers, who slapped at Gregory's arms in an attempt to quiet the noise. The woofing continued and Flowers eventually was awarded an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty near the end of the game.
Ameer Abdullah was the clear star, but don't forget the offensive line, which seemingly had its way with a big Miami defensive front.
