GETTING A RISE FROM THE CROWD

Gabe Ervin opened the scoring for the Huskers on Saturday. And he wasn’t done after this 2-yard run in the second quarter got fans on their feet. He added a 1-yard TD run in the fourth for his first two touchdowns as a Husker. Though Ervin’s runs were short, the Huskers had several long plays that gave them some breathing room in beating Buffalo 28-3. Adrian Martinez ripped off a 71-yard run and found Samori Touré for a 68-yard TD. It was the first time in seven seasons Nebraska had two 60-plus-yard plays in the same game. And the Huskers did it against a team that hadn’t allowed a 100-yard rusher (Martinez finished with 112) in its past 16 games. Touré also eclipsed the 100-yard mark, making him the first Husker receiver to post consecutive 100-yard games since 2018. But it wasn’t all about offense. After allowing seven points to Fordham the previous week, the Blackshirts didn’t give up a touchdown Saturday to record back-to-back single-digit point totals for the first time since 2010.
