Check out how each unit did in the Nebraska football team's first win of the regular season

NFL

The Nebraska football team got its first win of the season. They upended the Minnesota Golden Gophers 53-28 after taking a 28-8 lead at the half. Despite the win, there were a couple of units that still needed some improvement. Check out our grades for every unit of the Huskers for the whole game.

1

Quarterbacks (A)

It would have been harder for Adrian Martinez to have a better game. He completed 25 of 29 passes for 278 yards and three touchdowns. He also carried the ball 15 times for 125 yards and another TD. He did have one fumble on a bad snap. That's why he isn't getting an A+, but honestly he had the best overall game we've seen from a Husker quarterback in recent memory. Maybe ever?

2

Running backs (A+)

Devine Ozigbo had TD runs of 40 and 59 yards. He finished the day with 152 yards on just 12 carries. He added three catches for 25 yards. Maurice Washington played most of the second half and logged 109 yards on 14 carries and a touchdown of his own. Combined, the running backs went for 261 yards and three touchdowns. They averaged 10.03 yards a carry. For the game. The running backs averaged a first down per carry.
