Nebraska earns first win of Matt Rhule Era!

 Published On Sep 18, 2023

Nebraska Beats Northern Illinois 35-11. 

Bob and Jay break down strong defense, reliable special teams, an emerging quarterback Heinrich Haarberg and low penalties add up to a strong first win for Coach Rhule.  Trev Alberts gives Coach Rhule the game ball.
The slow rebuild of the Matt Rhule era takes a positive step with a Northern Illinois team that has showed they can be dangerous beating Boston College, who in turn took Florida State to the mat.

Even the offense showed well late in the game with 95 yards in the fourth quarter.  There is a lot to like in this game.  Injuries take a toll though with the loss of Gabe Ervin and Rhamir Johnson.
