(The Huskers trailed 27-6 midway through the third quarter.) But before Miller was forced out of the game, Husker LB Lavonte David, made arguably the Defensive Play of the Year.He stripped the ball from Miller, putting Nebraska in scoring position.And Burkhead's late fourth-quarter TD that gave the Huskers the lead and the win should rank as the Huskers' Offensive Play of the Year.
The Huskers are playing in a January bowl, have a chance at a 10 win season and a Top 15 finish.
Had it not been for the "Cornhusker Comeback," who knows what would have happened?
It's just proves how one game -- one win -- really changed the year for Nebraska.
Speaking of the number nine (my apologies to Herman Cain), did you know that nine Husker opponents are playing in bowl games this year?
So when Bo Pelini took over in '08, he was "expected" to restore the nine-win tradition. Not surprisingly, when the Huskers beat Iowa in the regular-season finale to go 9-3, there was a collective sigh of relief coming from Husker fans (and we suppose even Pelini himself). Husker fans had expected more from this year's team.
