- Call Rex Burkhead’s final tote of the rock what you want, but he deserved the record for carries after his day/season.
- Speaking of Superman, he was responsible for over 72 percent of Nebraska’s rushing yardage and over 41 percent of the Cornhuskers’ entire offensive output.
- The gameplan was vanilla, but when you have a weapon like Burkhead and an opponent that can’t stop him, why mess with a good thing?
- Ameer Abdullah ran hard when he had the opportunity. Another year’s tutelage under No. 22 will only end in positive results for the young backups.
- Taylor’s touchdown lob to Kyler Reed was awfully Tebowesque.
- Martinez has improved over the season, but it’s been two steps forward, one step back.
- Props to seniors on the offensive line. This is a unit that's pulled a 180.
- Lavonte David plays like the entire opposing team has personally wronged him. In other news, the sun rose today.
- Andrew Green looks remarkably different from game one. We might see cousins playing regularly on offense and defense come next season.
- Wonder what five things Iowa wide receiver Marvin McNutt wishes he could’ve brought to Dennard Island.
- Brett Maher had a 16-yard punt and still ended the game with a near 42-yard average on seven boots.
- Bowl Prediction of the Week: Capital One vs. Arkansas.
- Nebraska and Iowa should be playing for a six-foot-long bronzed pitchfork. There, it’s been said.
