Blake Corum, No. 3 Michigan breeze past Nebraska

Heisman Trophy hopeful Blake Corum rushed for 162 yards and a touchdown as No. 3 Michigan rolled to a 34-3 victory over Nebraska on Saturday at Ann Arbor, Mich.

J.J. McCarthy completed 8-of-17 passes for 129 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for another score for Michigan (10-0, 7-0 Big Ten). Ronnie Bell caught four passes for 72 yards and a touchdown, while C.J. Stokes added 68 rushing yards on eight carries as the Wolverines rushed for 264 yards.

Michigan, which is 10-0 for the first time since 2006, plays Illinois in its home finale next Saturday before its annual showdown with arch-rival Ohio State on Nov. 26.

Nebraska starting quarterback Chubba Purdy sustained a leg injury on a running play late in the first half and did not return. Purdy still wound up as the team’s leading rusher with 39 yards in five carries.

The Cornhuskers (3-7, 2-5) were limited to 147 total yards.

Corum had 103 rushing yards by halftime as the Wolverines grabbed a 17-3 lead.

Michigan drove 80 yards in 12 plays during its first possession, capping it off with Corum’s 2-yard touchdown run. McCarthy completed a 25-yard pass to Bell during that drive.

A 28-yard completion from McCarthy to Colston Loveland and a 12-yard run by Corum set up the Wolverines’ next touchdown, a 9-yard pass from McCarthy to Bell midway through the second quarter.

Timmy Bleekrode’s 37-yard field goal put Nebraska on the board. Michigan’s Jake Moody answered that with a 30-yard field goal with one second left in the half.

A 10-play, 65-yard drive gave Michigan a three-touchdown lead late in the third quarter. Corum had 33 rushing yards in that span and McCarthy finished it off by cutting to his left on a 3-yard run.

Stokes gained 46 yards on the Wolverines’ next scoring drive. McCarthy hit Bell with a 29-yard gain but Bell fumbled just before the goal line. Andrel Anthony recovered it near the end line with 9:39 remaining.

Moody added a 43-yard field goal late in the fourth quarter to complete the scoring.

Michigan’s potent rushing duo a challenge for Nebraska

Blake Corum remains in the discussion for the Heisman Trophy. With Donovan Edwards healthy, Michigan’s rushing attack is no longer a one-man show.

Nebraska will have to prepare for both dynamic running backs when the Cornhuskers travel to Ann Arbor to face the undefeated Wolverines on Saturday afternoon.

Michigan (9-0, 6-0 Big Ten) moved up to No. 3 in the latest College Football Playoff rankings. The Wolverines now trail only Georgia and arch-rival Ohio State.

Corum entered the week ranked fourth nationally with 1,187 rushing yards and tied for first with 17 total touchdowns. Corum and the Wolverines perked up after trailing 17-10 at halftime against Rutgers Saturday night, as Michigan pulled away to a 52-17 victory.

Corum finished with 109 rushing yards on 20 carries and two touchdowns. Edwards compiled the same number of rushing yards on 15 carries and also led the team in receiving with three receptions for 52 yards and a touchdown.

“When Donovan is in the game, whether handing the ball off to him, he’s a very good blocker, runs really good routes, catches the ball really well, really good after the catch,” Michigan Head Coach Jim Harbaugh said. “I think a defense is always going to have to mind that anything’s available when he’s out there.”

Edwards missed two games due to an injury but reestablished himself as a major threat when he rushed for 173 yards and scored two touchdowns against Penn State on Oct. 15.

Edwards’ production hasn’t hurt Corum, who has rushed for over 100 yards in all six Big Ten contests. He’s scored at least one touchdown in every game.

Harbaugh believes Corum should be at the top of the list for Heisman voters.

“He’s definitely having an MVP season for us here at Michigan,” he said. “Be hard to imagine that he wouldn’t be — the way he’s going, to win the Heisman trophy. Leading in touchdowns. Leading points scored, consistently really good every game and there’s been quite a few backs who’ve won the Heisman Trophy. And I would bet my truck that Blake Corum is on pace or ahead of many of those running backs that have won that Heisman Trophy.”

The Cornhuskers (3-6, 2-4) have lost three straight and will need to win their remaining three games to become bowl eligible.

Nebraska led Minnesota 10-0 at halftime on Saturday but the Golden Gophers rallied for a 20-13 victory.

Cornhuskers quarterbacks Chubba Purdy and Logan Smothers combined for just 121 passing yards while completing 11 of 26 attempts.

Purdy got his first start in place of Casey Thompson, who injured a nerve in his right elbow the previous game against Illinois. Thompson is questionable to play against Michigan.

One bright spot for Nebraska has been Anthony Grant. He is the first Nebraska running back since 2018 to have five 100-yard rushing games in a season. He gained 115 yards on 21 carries against Minnesota.

Interim coach Mickey Joseph expects the team to give a full effort despite being nearly a 30-point underdog.

“We’re not going to back down. We’re not going to throw in the towel,” he said. “These kids won’t do that. These coaches won’t do that.”

Joseph acknowledges the Cornhuskers will have to play a near perfect game to keep it close.

“We know what we’re getting into,” he said. “We know the task at hand but it’s an opportunity.”

Nebraska QB Casey Thompson departs with hand injury

Nebraska quarterback Casey Thompson sustained an apparent injury to his right hand in the second quarter against Illinois in Lincoln, Neb., on Saturday and was not expected to return.

Thompson, who was coming off a 354-yard passing performance in a loss to Purdue on Oct. 15, was hurt when he was hit while releasing a pass with 6:31 left before halftime.

Illinois’ Sydney Brown intercepted the fluttering pass and returned it 37 yards to the Nebraska 11-yard line. Chase Brown later scored on a 1-yard run to vault the Fighting Illini to a 13-9 lead.

Sophomore quarterback Logan Smothers took over at quarterback for the Cornhuskers for the rest of the half, completing his only pass attempt and rushing twice for six yards.

As halftime came to an end, Thompson returned to the Nebraska sideline without a helmet and did not join the team for second-half warmups, according to the Illini Inquirer.

Redshirt freshman Chubba Purdy was at quarterback for Nebraska to start the second half.

Thompson, a junior who is in his first year with Nebraska after three seasons at Texas, went 7 of 15 for 172 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the first half.

He began the day with 4,273 yards passing in his career with a completion percentage of 63.9 percent and 41 touchdowns versus 17 interceptions.

Illinois led Nebraska 20-6 at halftime.

Purdue fends off Nebraska 43-37, wins fourth straight

Aidan O’Connell threw for 391 yards and four touchdowns, and Devin Mockobee rushed for 178 yards and a score as Purdue outlasted visiting Nebraska 43-37 in their Big Ten matchup on Saturday in West Lafayette, Ind.

The Boilermakers (5-2, 3-1 Big Ten) survived a monstrous game from Cornhuskers wide receiver Trey Palmer, who piled up 297 yards from scrimmage. He caught seven passes for 237 yards and two scores, one of them a 72-yarder from Casey Thompson that pulled Nebraska within 34-30 late in the third quarter.

However, Purdue extended its lead to 37-30 with 10 minutes left in the game on Mitch Fineran’s 34-yard field goal, his third of the game.

Nebraska’s next possession ended when Reese Taylor picked off Thompson at the Purdue 38. The Boilermakers turned that into Charlie Jones’ 2-yard TD reception, giving them some breathing room at 43-30 with 6:55 left in the game, although Fineran missed the extra point.

But Thompson again connected with Palmer, this time for 64 yards, to get to the Purdue 6. Two plays later, Anthony Grant’s 1-yard run and Timmy Bleekrode’s point-after cut the deficit to 43-37 with just under six minutes left.

The Boilermakers kept possession the rest of the way, including converting a fourth-and-1 at midfield and running out the clock.

In the third quarter, Palmer’s end-around set up Bleekrode’s third field goal, a 22-yarder, as the Cornhuskers (3-4, 2-2) crept to within 27-23.

Thompson completed 16 of 29 passes for 354 yards and two touchdowns and two interceptions.

O’Connell went 35-of-54 passing, and his four touchdowns matched a season high.

Purdue scored 17 points in a span of 5:14 late in the second quarter and led 27-13 at halftime.

Nebraska countered with the first 13 points of the third quarter, including a 37-yard scoring toss to Palmer and two Bleekrode field goals.

TJ Sheffield’s second touchdown, a 28-yard completion from O’Connell, extended the lead to 34-23 with 2:18 left in the third quarter.

The Boilermakers, who won their fourth straight game, had four sacks to none for the Cornhuskers, and had the edge in total yards (608-476), first downs (38-15) and total plays (101-52).

Nebraska continuing to change ahead of tilt with Indiana

One of the least-played matchups in the Big Ten is scheduled for Saturday night when Nebraska hosts Indiana in Lincoln, Neb.

It will be the third time the Cornhuskers and Hoosiers have played since Nebraska joined the Big Ten in 2012, the last meeting happening in 2019. Indiana won 38-31 on the road, one of many one-score losses during the recently ended tenure of Scott Frost at Nebraska.

The Cornhuskers (1-3, 0-1) are coming off a bye, having lost 49-14 at home to then-No. 6 Oklahoma in the debut of interim coach Mickey Joseph. Since then, Joseph has parted ways with defensive coordinator Erik Chinander, whose unit had allowed 35.5 points and a conference-worst 514 yards per game.

“Chinander is a good man and a good coach, but the numbers did not add up,” Joseph said. “I did not see us getting better. For four weeks, I did not see us getting better from week one to week four. I had to make a decision, the best decision for the kids because it is about the boys.”

Indiana (3-1, 1-0) is coming off its first loss, a 45-24 setback at Cincinnati. The Hoosiers had won their first three games by a combined 19 points, all at home.

“Our first road game last week, we didn’t handle the situation the way we needed to early for sure,” Indiana coach Tom Allen said. “This gives us a chance to be able to go do that again, have the same flow, same schedule in regard to the travel piece of it. We’re going to change up things we do this week with our guys to try to be able to create a faster start for our team. That is going to be happening on a daily basis.”

Indiana has the second-lowest rushing average in the conference, at 114.8 yards per game, but faces a Nebraska run defense that’s last in the Big Ten at 233.5 yards allowed per contest. That includes 214 yards and two touchdowns in the week zero loss in Ireland to a Northwestern team that’s lost three straight games since.

Nebraska, which has sold out a record 385 consecutive home games dating back to 1962, has dropped its last six at Memorial Stadium against FBS opponents. Indiana has dropped five in a row on the road and six straight conference road games.

No. 6 Oklahoma tramples Nebraska

Dillon Gabriel threw for 230 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another score as No. 6 Oklahoma blew out Nebraska 49-14 on Saturday in Lincoln, Nebraska.

It was the Sooners’ biggest scoring output ever in Lincoln.

After Oklahoma struggled early on both sides, the Sooners (3-0) took control and dominated the rest of the way in a renewal of the longtime Big Eight rivalry.

The Mickey Joseph era could not have gotten off to a much better start at the outset of the game.

Joseph was named the Cornhuskers’ interim head coach earlier in the week after Scott Frost was fired.

The Cornhuskers forced the Sooners to punt on the game’s first drive, then needed less than two minutes to drive 77 yards to take an early 7-0 lead on Casey Thompson’s 32-yard pass to Trey Palmer.

Oklahoma faced third-and-seven from its own 39 on its second drive, and got a strong rush. But Gabriel eluded the would-be tacklers and found plenty of room to run, going 61 yards for a touchdown.

Beginning with Gabriel’s career-long run, the Sooners scored touchdowns on seven of nine possessions.

After that early touchdown, things turned sour for Nebraska’s offense as well.

The Cornhuskers (1-3) had just 76 yards in the first half after the initial drive, being outgained 355-148 before half.

Eric Gray ran for 113 yards and two touchdowns for the Sooners for his second 100-yard game this season.

Thompson was 14 of 20 for 129 yards and a touchdown for Nebraska, but the Sooners sacked him four times in the first half.

Thompson, whose father, Charles, was a star quarterback for the Sooners, started against Oklahoma for the second time in two seasons after playing for Texas last season.

Oklahoma outgained Nebraska 580-327, with the Sooners rushing for 315 yards. The Sooners came into the game struggling on third down but went 10 for 16 on third.

The Sooners turned the ball over for the first time this season late in the game, but won the turnover battle 2-1.

Oklahoma turned to some trickery early in the second quarter when tight end Brayden Willis took a lateral, then found Marcus Major downfield for a 24-yard touchdown reception.

No. 6 Oklahoma offers no respite for regrouping Huskers

Mickey Joseph once was the center of a recruiting war between Nebraska and Oklahoma.

Now he’ll begin his Division I head coaching career for Nebraska (1-2) against the sixth-ranked Sooners (2-0) when the teams face off Saturday in Lincoln, Neb.

Joseph ultimately chose the Cornhuskers over the Sooners.

But in the wake of Scott Frost being fired following Nebraska’s 45-42 loss to Georgia Southern last week, Joseph took over as the interim head coach this week, 10 months since arriving from LSU to become the Cornhuskers’ associate head coach and passing game coordinator.

Joseph said Nebraska’s players have responded well to the week of change: “They handled it like champs.”

After Frost was fired, Cornhuskers edge rusher Ochaun Mathis told the Lincoln Journal Star there was a “losing culture” around the program that needed to change.

Joseph pushed back against that characterization Tuesday.

“We haven’t been winning, OK, but I wouldn’t say it’s a losing culture,” Joseph said. “A losing culture are kids who don’t come to work. These kids have played in a lot of tight games. Now we’ve got to figure out a way to get them over the hump.”

Nebraska went 5-22 in one-score games during Frost’s tenure, including last season’s 23-16 loss to the Sooners in Norman, Okla.

When Joseph played for the Cornhuskers, Nebraska-Oklahoma was one of the top rivalries in college football, regularly determining the Big Eight winner while often serving as something of an elimination game among national championship contenders.

In 17 of the 31 seasons from 1971 through 2001, both teams were ranked in the top 10 when they squared off.

But when the Big Eight became the Big 12, the teams landed in separate divisions, and the game became less frequent. And with Nebraska’s 2011 move to the Big Ten, the teams stopped playing until last year’s 23-16 Oklahoma victory.

This home-and-home series was set up to commemorate the 1971 “Game of the Century” between the teams.

Saturday’s meeting doesn’t have that kind of importance, but with Nebraska going through the coaching transition and No. 6 Oklahoma looking to bolster its hopes for a College Football Playoff appearance, there’s still plenty to play for on both sides.

Sooners coach Brent Venables is plenty familiar with Nebraska quarterback Casey Thompson.

Thompson’s father, Charles, was a quarterback for the Sooners in the 1980s and was around the Oklahoma program during Venables’ stint as the defensive coordinator there from 1999 to 2011.

Venables tried to get Casey Thompson to follow in his father’s footsteps this past offseason when Thompson entered the transfer portal from Texas.

“Really pulling for him,” Venables said. “Except this week.”

The Sooners instead added Central Florida transfer Dillon Gabriel at quarterback after Caleb Williams left for USC. Through two games, Gabriel has completed 70 percent of his passes for 529 yards and has five touchdowns with no interceptions.

Oklahoma has yet to commit a turnover, the first time since at least 1936 that the team hasn’t turned the ball over through the first two games of a season.

“Continuing to take care of the rock, again, that’s where it’s all going to start for us,” Sooners offensive coordinator Jeff Lebby said of Gabriel. “Proud of him from that standpoint. We’ve created some explosive (plays). The biggest thing is making sure we’re not taking unnecessary sacks.”

On the other side, the Sooners have allowed just 16 points through two games, handling UTEP 45-13 and Kent State 33-3.

Their level of competition will take a leap on Saturday. Even though the Cornhuskers have dropped games to Northwestern and Georgia Southern, the offense has still been potent, averaging 36 points a game.

Nebraska looking to build momentum, hosts Georgia Southern

Teams led by coaches with plenty of experience operating on the hot seat meet Saturday in Lincoln, Neb., when Nebraska hosts Georgia Southern in a nonconference game.

Nebraska coach Scott Frost is high on most lists of college football coaches likely to be fired this season, a spot solidified when his Cornhuskers opened the season by blowing a two-score lead and a loss to Big Ten foe Northwestern. The Huskers evened their record at 1-1 last week with a 38-17 home win over North Dakota, though the game was tied at 17 in the third quarter.

“Looking back on the game I thought there was a lot of good things we could take from it,” Frost said. “Usually when you watch tape nothing’s as good as you think or as bad as you think. It’s been a process to get everyone on the same page.”

Georgia Southern opened its season with a 59-7 home win over Morgan State, making for a solid debut under new coach Clay Helton. Helton was hired by the Eagles last November after he was fired by USC two games into his seventh season as head coach.

Helton’s USC tenure involved several seasons on the rumor mill as the Trojans never achieved the national heights expected at USC — much like Frost’s experience at Nebraska.

Following their season-opening pratfall, the Cornhuskers rushed for 244 yards and three touchdowns against North Dakota, more than doubling their ground production from the first game. Junior Anthony Grant ran for 189 yards and two scores, earning Big Ten Offensive Co-Player of the Week honors.

Georgia Southern got 367 passing yards and four TD passes from quarterback Kyle Vantrease, a 6th-year senior transfer from Buffalo who tied the school record for TDs and had the Eagles’ first 300-yard passing game since 2008.

Picked to finish fifth in the Sun Belt’s East Division, Georgia Southern is 0-2 all-time against the Big Ten with losses at Indiana (2017) and Minnesota (2019). The Eagles are 2-30 against current power-conference teams, the last win coming at Florida in 2013 when they were still at the FCS level.

Nebraska is 15-2 against Sun Belt schools, most recently losing at home to Troy in 2018 — Frost’s first season, when the Cornhuskers started 0-6. Nebraska is now 16-30 under Frost.

Nebraska hopes for new start against North Dakota

Nebraska will look to bounce back from a demoralizing season-opening loss to Northwestern when it hosts North Dakota on Saturday in Lincoln, Neb.

The Cornhuskers, who were hoping for a breakthrough season under fifth-year coach Scott Frost, fell apart in the second half against the Wildcats in a Big Ten game in Dublin, Ireland, and lost 31-28.

Northwestern scored two touchdowns in the final 24:37 to deal the Cornhuskers their seventh straight loss dating to last season.

The Cornhuskers are the first major-conference team in the AP Poll era, which goes back to 1936, to drop seven straight contests by single digits, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

“We’ve just lost too many close games,” Frost said. “These guys need something to believe in. We need to believe in ourselves as a team. I think they do.”

Casey Thompson went 25-for-42 for 355 yards and a touchdown with two interceptions, both of which occurred in the fourth quarter that derailed any hopes of a comeback. Anthony Grant had 19 carries for 101 yards and two touchdowns and Isaiah Garcia-Castaneda had four catches for 120 yards and a score.

Defensively, the Cornhuskers allowed 528 yards of total offense, including 314 through the air, against a Northwestern team that Nebraska defeated 56-7 last year.

Nebraska hopes a turnaround from last year’s 3-9 season — its fourth straight losing season under Frost — will start with a win over North Dakota, a I-AA school that won two of its final three games last year to finish 5-6.

The Fighting Hawks return quarterback Tommy Schuster, who completed 65.1 percent of his passes for 2,493 yards with 13 touchdowns against seven interceptions.

He’s complemented by receivers Bo Belquist (535 yards, five TDs), tight end Adam Zavalney (303 yards, four TDs) and running back Isaiah Smith, who had 52 carries for 356 yards — an average of 6.8 yards per carry — to go with a pair of scores last season.

“We are excited about the progress we are making,” North Dakota coach Bubba Schweigert said. “Our season is full of huge possibilities. We are excited to play a Big Ten opponent because this is a tremendous opportunity for our team.”

Noah Ruggles kicks No. 5 Ohio State past Nebraska

Noah Ruggles kicked four field goals for the second straight game for the struggling Ohio State offense Saturday to help the No. 5 Buckeyes hold on to defeat Nebraska 26-17 in Lincoln, Neb.

Ohio State (8-1, 6-0 Big Ten) led 17-10 at the half and Ruggles made field goals of 46 and 35 yards in the third quarter to increase the lead to 23-10.

Nebraska (3-7, 1-6) responded with a 75-yard drive to pull to within 23-17 in the final minute of the third quarter on a 1-yard keeper by Adrian Martinez, one play after a 53-yard catch by Somari Toure.

But that would be as close as the Cornhuskers could get even though they got the ball back and reached the OSU 13-yard line before Chase Contreraz missed a 31-yard field goal.

Ohio State made it a two-possession game when Ruggles added a 46-yard field goal with 1:29 remaining, which made it 26-17. The graduate transfer from North Carolina is 15 for 15 this season.

Ohio State quarterback C.J. Stroud was 36 of 54 for 405 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.

His favorite target was Jaxon Smith-Njigba, who had one TD while setting a school record with 15 receptions that totaled 240 yards, second-most in school history.

Martinez was 16 for 31 for 248 yards, a touchdown and an interception, which ended Nebraska’s last drive at midfield with 56 seconds remaining. Toure had four catches for 150 yards.

Nebraska, which had lost each of its previous six losses this season by one score, played the Buckeyes tight throughout.

Ohio State was held scoreless in the first quarter for the second time this season, the other being in the 35-28 loss to Oregon in the second game.

A 26-yard field goal by Ruggles at 1:25 of the second quarter gave the Buckeyes a 3-0 lead and a 2-yard TD pass to Chris Olave made it 10-0 6:41 before halftime.

Nebraska made it 10-3 on a 39-yard field goal from Contreraz before the teams swapped explosive scores.

First, Smith-Njigba caught a 75-yard pass for Ohio State with 3:34 left in the half, then Toure’s 72-yard reception for the Cornhuskers 41 seconds later made it 17-10.
