Husker Football The New "Comeback Kids"
Posted: 07 November, 2012
LINCOLN (AP) - Nebraska switched to the no-huddle offense last year with the idea of dictating tempo and wearing out defenses.
The system also has proved valuable when the 18th-ranked Cornhuskers have had to play from behind. This past weekend’s 28-24 victory at Michigan State marked the third time the Huskers have won after wiping out double-digit deficits in the second half. Quarterback Taylor Martinez says he and his mates take a business-as-usual approach when the clock is running down. That’s because the two-minute offense is just about the same as their normal offense. Without come-from-behind wins over Wisconsin, Northwestern and Michigan State, the Huskers (7-2, 4-1 Big Ten) wouldn’t be in control of the Legends Division heading into Saturday’s game against Penn State (6-3, 4-1).
