Nebraska got a big break on Saturday.
Oregon star RB Royce Freeman left the game with a right leg injury and did not return. He was holding an ice pack on his right shin and had a towel over his head. The Huskers won 35-32.
OC Matt Lubick got emotional when asked about status of Royce Freeman and Devon Allen:"I’m very proud, I’m very proud of those guys."
