3 things we learned from win over Nebraska

3 things we learned from win over Nebraska”

Justin Herbert passed for 365 yards and three touchdowns to lead the OR offense.

The first half had the feel of a blowout, with the Sooners outgaining the Buckeyes 222-92; the scoreboard, however, read just 3-3 after two quarters. Williams returned the ball 27 yards to the OR 44-yard line, but the Husker got no closer than the OR 35-yard line and punted.

OR hosts Nebraska on Saturday at Autzen Stadium in a matchup of two 1-0 teams looking for a quality win before conference play kicks off.

"It was just kind of that, "next-man-in" mentality", sophomore cornerback Eric Lee said. Sophomore running back Tre Bryant injured his right knee on his 20th carry and also did not return.

NU entered the field before the game from a tunnel on the east end, meaning they ran out with their fans straight ahead of them.

They were, however, far quieter at halftime as the Huskers trudged to the locker room trailing 42-14.

"Really, really disappointing start of the game", Riley said. That ended up sparking a 10-play, 95-yard drive that ended with a 23-yard touchdown pass from Lee to De'Mornay Pierson-El. But Willie Taggart's group responded with a 35-7 scoring run that ensured its memory would be diluted. Herbert has validated Taggart's decision to keep him atop the depth chart by shredding the Ducks' first two opponents for 646 passing yards and four passing touchdowns against just one interception on 42-of-54 passing. It was Oregon's most points in a single game since 1916. Fellow senior Kani Benoit's two career 100-yard games came previous year against the Huskers and last week.

The explosive OR offense, led by quarterback Herbert and running back Royce Freeman, went on to score a total of five touchdowns in 30 minutes of gameplay. Charles Nelson had 117 yards receiving.

The storm caused damage throughout the region, flooding homes and leaving at least 30 dead. The National Guard has been on stand-by since Harvey first made landfall.

"They may like what they saw in the game film", Riley offered Thursday, "But my guess - I probably shouldn't even go this far, because who knows - my guess is that they have good runners and they want them to run the ball".

For his part, Lee had a tepid showing.

The Huskers scored on their first two possessions in the second half with a pair of touchdown passes from Lee to wide receiver Stanley Morgan. Nebraska offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf said the Huskers should be ready.

Nebraska won the toss and deferred to the second half.

The Blackshirts, meanwhile, forced two turnovers and other turnover on downs to redeem themselves from a first half in which OR (2-0) amassed 409 yards and scored 21 straight points to close the second quarter.

Nebraska, trailing 35-14, took possession with 2:40 remaining, but Graham intercepted Lee on a third-and-15 pass, giving OR the ball at the Huskers' 34-yard line. "I think that's why he was a great player, he took pride in it every single day".

On the second play of the fourth quarter, Graham intercepted Lee again, this time on a third-down attempt, and returned the ball to the Nebraska 31-yard line.

Nebraska was unable to slow OR down in the first half, but halftime adjustments gave the Huskers a chance at the end.
