Nebraska returner Pierson-El stars on offense too

October 19, 2014

Nebraska's De'Mornay Pierson-El quickly established his reputation as one of the nation's top punt returners.

This freshman can do more than special teams.

Knowing that Pierson-El has returned two punts for touchdowns, Northwestern mostly kicked away from him Saturday. That didn't stop him from hurting the Wildcats in other ways in the Cornhuskers' 38-17 road victory.

EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) — Justin Jackson got off to a fast start, and Northwestern looked ready to avenge its heartbreaking loss to Nebraska from a year ago.

Then Ameer Abdullah got going in the second half, and the Wildcats fell apart.

Northwestern managed just 28 yards in the final two quarters and Abdullah had three of his four 1-yard touchdown runs in the second half, helping the 19th-ranked Cornhuskers roll to a 38-17 victory on Saturday night.

Huskers, Northwestern brace for another tight game

October 17, 2014

EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) — The last time Nebraska played at Northwestern two years ago, so many Cornhuskers fans packed the stadium that the home team had to go to a silent count on offense.

Coach Bo Pelini wouldn't be shocked if a similar scenario unfolds again.

No. 19 Nebraska visits Northwestern in a game that matches two teams that played absolute thrillers the previous three years. They also are trying to keep pace in the Big Ten West race, and Pelini wouldn't be surprised if the Cornhuskers got another assist from their fans.
