LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Nebraska goes into its game against Rutgers hoping to carry over the momentum from the second half of last week's game against Northwestern.
The No. 16 Cornhuskers (6-1, 2-1 Big Ten) got off to a slow start against the Wildcats just as they did the week before at Michigan State. Unlike against the Spartans, the Huskers came back to win, outgaining the Wildcats 244-28 in the second half while overcoming a three-point deficit.
The Huskers, a half-game behind Minnesota in the West Division, are in the softest part of their conference schedule and can ill-afford a letdown with four straight West opponents lined up after Rutgers.
