Welcome Husker nation and college football fans alike.
Week 3 of the college season is behind us. Some called it road test weekend with a large number of top teams going on the road to tough environments.
Defending champion Auburn faltered to a good Clemson team in Death Valley, possibly overrated Arizona State was up ended in Campaign Ill., and the Buckeyes laid and egg in Miami.
The No. 10 ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers were at good old sold out Memorial stadium though. Welcoming the Washington Huskies to town for the third matchup in 364 days.
The first two meeting saw the highs and lows of last season. Game one went the way of the Huskers, as Nebraska went into Huskie stadium last year and throttled the Huskies in nearly all aspects winning 56-21. Game two was the Holiday Bowl in San Diego; Washington went to the opposite direction as Nebraska last season and capped it off with a sluggish win 19-7.
Washington came to Lincoln riding a six game winning streak. The Huskie offense under new QB Keith Price seem to be more of a complete offense, not missing a beat with the loss of Jake Locker to the NFL. Cris Polk continued to his impressive season by rushing for 130 yards on 22 attempts with a touchdown.
On Saturday Tim Beck's all option all the time offense finally opened up and the Huskers sent the Huskies home with a big loss in a high scoring affair 51-38.
There was some good things to take from this win but there is still plenty of work to be done before the road trip to Madison on Oct. 8.
