Switch Goes Off For Huskers In Unraveling Loss

What started out as a dream quickly became and ended as a nightmare for 91,471 fans at Saturdays Nebraska home game versus 16th ranked UCLA.

After building a 21-3 lead late in the second quarter, Nebraskas offense and defense went dormant and sleep walked against UCLAs potent offense in the second half.

As a result, the Bruins scored 38 unanswered points the remainder of the game handing the Big Red its first loss of the season while snapping the Cornhuskers 10-game home winning streak.

There are several reasons as to why this collapse took place.

Defensively, the Cornhuskers couldnt do a good enough job of tackling in the open field. When tackles are missed bad things usually happen and they did on Saturday.

Nebraska had no answer for UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley. Nebraskas pass rush couldnt slow down Hundley who passed for 294 yards and three touchdowns.
