Cardiac Cornhuskers Come From Behind Once Again
Posted: 12 November, 2012
LINCOLN (AP) - At this point, the Nebraska Cornhuskers don’t care how they win as long as they win. Nebraska (8-2, 5-1) erased a 14-point halftime deficit to beat Penn State 32-23 Saturday, the Huskers’ fourth come-from-behind win in six games.
Receiver Kenny Bell says he knows people knock the Big Ten, but to win four games the way they have is a great accomplishment. A win at home this week against Minnesota (6-4, 2-4) and one at Iowa (4-6, 2-4) would let the No. 16 Huskers make good on coach Bo Pelini’s public challenge to win out after that blowout loss at Ohio State on Oct. 6. According to STATS LLC, Nebraska is among only three teams since 2000 to have come back from four second-half deficits of 10 or more points to win. The others are Arkansas in 2008 and UCLA in 2005. North Carolina State did it six times in 2000.
