It was a tale of two halves.
To be more accurate, it was a tale of two-and-a-half quarters and then another quarter-and-a-half.
For the majority of Nebraska's first home conference game in the Big Ten, it looked like the game would be a repeat of the Huskers' embarrassing road loss against Wisconsin.
It was almost too much to bear for Husker fans–back-to-back beatings at the hands of their new conference mates on national television and an 0-2 start to conference play, something that hasn't happened since 1968.
Then with 7:54 remaining in the third quarter, LB Lavonte David stripped the ball from QB Braxton Miller as he fought for yardage, which provided a much-needed spark for the Huskers.
The Nebraska offense suddenly sprang to life and rattled off 28 unanswered points, thanks largely to the seemingly unstoppable Rex Burkhead and a rejuvenated Taylor Martinez.
Amazingly, the Huskers prevailed 34-27. As a result, they set a new record for the largest comeback in Nebraska football history.
Since the game felt like two games in one, there will be two sets of grades; one before the momentum shift and one afterwards.
