Some interesting observations made by author Pete Fiutak:
- "Best Offensive Player: Junior TE Mike McNeill"
- "Key Player to a successful season: Junior WR Niles Paul"
- "Key Game: Nov. 14 @ Kansas"
- "The season will be a success if.....the Huskers win the North."
- "...with the great defense, decent promise on offense, and one of the nation's best kickers in Alex Henery, there's no reason this can't be the year Nebraska gets back to the Big 12 title game and is more than just a speed bump against the South champion."
- - Fourth quarter scoring: Nebraska 155 - Opponents 52
- - Fumbles over the last two years: Nebraska 40 (lost 28) – Opponents 32 (lost 8)
- - Time of possession: Nebraska 34:01 - Opponents 25:59
- - Penalties: Nebraska 94 for 800 yards - Opponents 64 for 477 yards
Fix those two things and this season will be a success - as Pete says.
