Sound waves: What others are saying about Saturday’s Husker game | Football

Scanning the wires

What other media outlets are saying:

For most teams that come into Memorial Stadium, beating Nebraska doesn’t mean as much as it used to considering the Cornhuskers’ fall from the upper echelon of college football the last two decades.

You couldn’t tell that to Illinois coach Lovie Smith after his team left Lincoln with a 41-23 win Saturday.

“You can imagine what our locker room was like,” Smith said. “I’m told we haven’t won in Lincoln since 1924 when Red Grange played. Whenever something like that happens, it’s a big deal.”

Brandon Peters threw for one touchdown and ran for another in his first game in nearly a month, Illinois had two rushers go over 100 yards and the Illini beat the turnover-plagued Huskers for their second straight win.

The Huskers flopped a week after beating Penn State for their first win.

Luke McCaffrey, making his second start at quarterback, committed the first of his four turnovers on the first play from scrimmage. Wan’Dale Robinson fumbled as the Huskers (1-3) tried to come back in the second half.
