Tommy Armstrong Jr. threw for 246 yards and ran for a career-high 132 to lead No. 20 Nebraska to a 24 -13 victory over Northwestern on Saturday night in the Big Ten opener for both teams.

Don't undervalue Nebraska's win just because Northwestern has struggled in September. Going on the road to face a stout defense, overcoming a couple early fumbles at the goal line and getting a conference victory is significant and was impressive for Nebraska. The Huskers are certainly trending in the right direction in Mike Riley's second year, and at this point they are looking like co-favorites in the Big Ten West with surging Wisconsin.

Kind of a bit awkward. Nebraska is playing Northwestern using a running back named Mikale Wilbon. Who's next AJ Adande?

Some old problems have popped up to hamper Nebraska in its Big Ten opener -- and the turnovers so far have been extra painful. The Huskers have fumbled on the goal line twice to let Northwestern and its stagnant offense hang around at halftime, though they still took a slim 3-point lead into intermission. Mike Riley won't be happy with the ball security, and the Huskers are surely going to hear plenty about it in the locker room.

Can Huskers exact revenge?
ESPN's Football Power Index indicates Nebraska will have an excellent opportunity to avoid a two-game losing streak in the series, having lost at home to Northwestern 30-28 last season.
Tennessee will wear its Smokey Grey alternates against Florida; Oregon will dress like its mascot; and Nebraska unveils a white chrome look.

Visit and commitment plans are continuing to shape up for No. 12 overall prospect Foster Sarell. The nation's No. 4 offensive tackle has already taken an official visit to Nebraska and said today that he will visit Notre Dame on Oct. 15 (Stanford game), Alabama on Oct. 22 (Texas A&M game), Washington either Nov. 12 or 19 (USC or Arizona State game) and Stanford in January. He said he wants to commit in November or December, which means he'll either commit to Stanford and take the January visit, or commit elsewhere and cancel it.
Quarterback Tommy Armstrong took a lot of the blame when things weren't going well at Nebraska, and now he deserves a lot of the credit.
What if Oregon redid these iconic uniforms? Alabama, Texas, USC, Oklahoma, Penn State, Ohio State and Nebraska would look a whole lot different.
Fallica picks Northwestern straight up
No. 20 Nebraska at Northwestern (+7.5) is the perfect scenario for an upset, writes Chris Fallica. The Huskers come off a big home win, but they are 1-4 in road openers in the past five years. Best bets (Insider)
