Strange day, as usual, in Lincoln. Purdue leaves with a 42-28 win. Nebraska drops its eighth straight game, the longest skid in program history. Purdue is 2-3 with a chance to even its record in two weeks at Illinois. Bowl eligibility is within reach for one of these teams.

Nothing but polite applause from the Nebraska crowd as the Huskers head to the locker room, down 20-7 to Purdue, after a bad miss from 54 yards by Barret Pickering as time expired in the first half. The Boilermakers built their lead with a balanced attack, throwing for 132 yards and rushing for 120.

So far today in Lincoln, Purdue is more physical than Nebraska, more precise, more opportunistic and appears more confident as David Blough and his offense take the field up 17-7 early in the second quarter.

The first lead in the first quarter for coach Scott Frost and Nebraska after a 75-yard opening march against Purdue. Lots of hope among those who held the balloons that this day will mark more milestones for the coach.
