Stanley Jean-Baptiste, CB, 6: It wasn’t Nebraska’s pass coverage that let NU down defensively, and Jean-Baptiste took advantage of his opportunity to play reasonably well.
P.J. Smith, S, 5: Smith did have eight total tackles, but much of the responsibility for slowing down Ohio State’s quarterback counter fell on the safeties, and the Buckeyes tortured Nebraska with that play throughout the second half.
Daimion Stafford, S, 5: Stafford had a missed interception which could have affected the momentum of the game and struggled along with his fellow safeties to corral Braxton Miller.
Josh Mitchell, CB, 5: Mitchell has struggled throughout the season in both pass coverage, and both of those deficiencies were on display against Ohio State on Saturday.
Ciante Evans, NICK, INC: Evans’ injury makes it difficult to judge his score overall, but Nebraska’s struggles in his absence suggests he is an important part of Bo Pelini’s plans.
