The Huskers’ road trip to West Lafayette did not result in the upset any eternally-optimistic Nebraska fans were hoping for.
Riding a seven-game losing streak heading into Saturday’s showdown with the Purdue Boilermakers, the Husker faithful were looking for any sort of fight remaining to keep the tourney dreams alive. Unfortunately for those fans, and Tim Miles’ job security, that fight did not last the entire game.
One thing to note, however: it did show up for the first half.
