Under Mike Riley, Nebraska’s worst loss was 10 points.
On Saturday, it was 59.
Here’s what Riley had to say after Nebraska’s 62-3 loss at Ohio sTate.
- What it looked like to me, I didn’t feel we played very loose. I thought we were tight early. But the fact of the matter is is we couldn’t do a lot offensively and we couldn’t get them off the field defensively.”
- We were beaten thoroughly in all the phases and it really didn’t remind me of our team.”
- On if Tommy Armstrong will play next week: “It’s too early to tell. The good situation was he came back out.”
- On the plan for quarterback: “Probably we’ll find out what plan we should make tomorrow.”
- On the message in the locker room: “The message was really of concern. Not too much of change of plans of how we were playing. It was fundamental parts of the football that was lacking. Tackling, position of blocks. Just getting back to getting to play football and running a play. Offense, defense, special teams– making it look like football. It came out of the blue to me.”
- On if his team will respond: “I think it will be up to both the coaches and leaders on the team to really kinda get back to having a good week of practice and prep and emphasized the fundamentals of what we need to do to win a game. Its been a couple of weeks since we’ve won.”
- “This team will respond. And it’s pretty raw right now to say that and I know it probably doesn’t look very good. But we’ve played through hard games, hard times, we’ve played our best ball in the fourth quarter. I’m just going to believe that’s how we’ll respond for getting ready for the next game.”
- “We don’t control our own destiny anymore but that doesn’t mean we can’t win our own division.”
