Many people are expecting No. 8 Nebraska to have a cakewalk on Saturday against Purdue and its interim coach, Gerad Parker.
But for the first 15 seconds in Lincoln, the Huskers couldn’t get any separation from the Boilermakers.
Finally, on the second play of the game — Nebraska’s first from scrimmage — quarterback Tommy Armstrong ran in a 22-yard touchdown to put his team up 7-0 with 14:44 remaining in the first quarter.

Kieron Williams made an interception on the game’s first play to set up the Armstrong score. Purdue did counter with a touchdown drive of its own after Armstrong’s scamper to make it 7-7.
