College Football World Reacts To Nebraska's Showing Today

No. 5 Oklahoma just wrapped up a 23-16 win over Nebraska in a game that was much closer than many expected it to be.

Nebraska fans aren’t really in the business of moral victories, but they should be encouraged by their team’s performance. Quarterback Adrian Martinez (289 passing yards, two total touchdowns) played one of his best games, and the Husker defense made life hard for OU quarterback Spencer Rattler and company.

In fact, if not for a pair of missed field goals and an extra point that was blocked and returned by the Sooners for two points, this game might have had a different finish. Anyway, considering Oklahoma was favored by more than 20 points, it is impressive Nebraska remained in the hunt until the final minute.

Not surprisingly, the postgame reactions from around the college football world were overwhelmingly positive.

I will say, I was impressed by Nebraska today. The performance from Scott Frost and his team deserves kudos 👏🏾

Also, this Nebraska team is much better than given credit. That is my point. They’re good. Just immature at times. @joelklatt said it best. They’re about to turn the corner. Big step toward that today against the #3 team and a 22point spread.

— Greg Hamer (@GregHamer2) September 18, 2021

That’s the most fun I’ve had watching a Nebraska game in 10 years. Battled and should have beat the #3 team in the country.

Proud of this team.

Nebraska has outplayed Oklahoma.

Can Nebraska and OU play every year now? You know, like a rivalry.

Unfortunately, by losing today, the Huskers kept an unflattering streak alive. The program has now lost 11-straight games against teams ranked in the top five of the AP poll.

That’s a skid they no doubt want to snap sooner rather than later.

Nebraska has now lost 11 straight games vs AP top-5 teams.

At 2-2 after four games, Nebraska now moves into the rest of its Big Ten schedule. The Huskers dropped their conference opener against Illinois on August 28.

They will take on a rising Michigan State team next Saturday night at 7 p.m. ET.
