Over- 38-9! The streak in Lincoln is over and the ghost of games past have been exorcised in a game that the Cats dominated in almost every facet. Not since 1968 have the Wildcats known victory in Lincoln and today the long awaited victory was finally secured. Seventeen, we can say it. Seventeen wins straight for the Huskers in Lincoln and it all came to a halt this evening in Ell Roberson's final game as a Wildcat away from Manhattan.

Ell threw for two second half TD's and ran for another in a performance befitting a senior that has waited so long to beat the Huskers on their home Turf. What better way to punctuate a career then going out in style beating the Huskers in front of a sold out crowd on Red? Although not flawless, Ell went 15 of 28 for 315 yards through the air and 2 TD's and he did it playing in pain. Taking a shot in the first half, Ell looks to have injured his left elbow/arm and at times looked pained as he made play after play. Many times he looked pained as he threw the ball but in the end, Ell's gritty performance put the final touches on an excellent career in the Purple and White.

When the dust had cleared, the Cats rolled up 557 yards of total offense and 38 points.

In a see saw battle that went to half-time tied at 7-7- the Cats took control at halftime and never looked back. Dominant. Dominant in almost every way possible as the Cats steam rolled the Huskers in front of a sold out Memorial Stadium and a Sea of Red.

The running game was clicking and the passing game came up big in moving the ball right down the middle of the Husker defense often going to the TE's. The bright spot for the Huskers is they do have one heckuva a punter and I would suspect he will need an ice pack.

Wildcats win and they Win Big!
