1st Quarter Recap

By Mike Marut

Nebraska started out strong with running back Ameer Abdullah getting 4 carries for some strong yards and wide receiver Kenny Bell getting one 29 yard reception but Northwestern fought off the Cornhuskers forcing two punts and a missed field goal, only the third missed field goal by kicker Drew Brown this season.
The Wildcats responded with a touchdown of their own after essentially a 96 yard drive, a holding penalty forced NU to start at the 6 yard line rather than the 11 yard line. Six players contributed positive yardage on the scoring drive.
