With all the talk about fumbling near the goal line this week, Nebraska somehow found a way to do it twice in the first half against Northwestern.
Sophomore running back Devine Ozigbo put the ball on the ground the second time when he was fighting for extra yardage in a sea of bodies near the goal line.

The play went to review, but the referees upheld their initial ruling of a fumble into the end zone, which was recovered by Northwestern for a touchback.
The Nebraska defense forced a punt, and the Huskers quickly marched back down the field for a touchdown to take a 10-7 lead late in the second quarter.
