The road losing streak ends at 8 games—Nebraska beats Illinois, 42-38, in another wild game

-It seems to never be easy for Nebraska—4 fumbles on their own side of the field, a 14-0 deficit early on, and more than 100 yards in penalties….but the better team did prevail eventually, with strong defense and an offense that put up a lot of yards and finally started to get more points on the board from it as the game went on

-Adrian Martinez was shaky in the first half, but was dialed in for the second half, as Nebraska ended up just shy of 700 (!!) yards of offense, and the defense held Illinois to less than 300 yards, even with a busted defensive play to start the game to give a long TD run to Reggie Corbin. The stats (outside of turnovers) indicate a Nebraska rout, yet the game was always in question, to the very end. The more things change, the more things stay the same…
