Nebraska vs. Northern Illinois live stream

Nebraska's offensive line is getting next-to-no protection for quarterback Tanner Lee, causing Lee to throw two early pick-six's. In the season opener, Nebraska came away with a 43-36 victory at home against Arkansas State that failed to inspire much confidence in the Huskers out of the gates. It did, to the point where the Huskers grabbed a 17-14 lead in the fourth quarter.

Lee completed 15 of 26 for 147 and the two turnovers in the first half. I-back Mikale Wilbon led the Nebraska backs with 90 yards on 24 carries.

The Huskers were cruising on its first drive with relative ease until a second-and-3 from the 10-yard line. Johnson intercepted Lee on a third-and-9 and took it back 25 yards to put the Huskies up 14-0. Yes, Northern Illinois is now 4-1 in their last five games against the Big Ten, but this doesn't look as strong as some past Huskies' teams.

Bob Diaco's defense has looked stellar so far, allowing just 88 yards of total offense, with an even 44 yards through the air and 44 on the ground.

The Huskers had been hoping that Lee, who struggled at Tulane but was being hyped in the offseason as an National Football League prospect, would be a better fit for Riley's offense. The Huskies were far from flawless, however, committing 15 penalties for 194 yards, while Hagan had field-goal attempts from 39 and 30 yards blocked. The Huskers ran into the halftime locker room down 14-0 to the sound of boos.

John McCain this week canned legislative plans to authorize deeper military ties between the US and Myanmar. She told him she was working toward securing immediate and improved humanitarian access to the region.

This was nothing new for Nebraska; the team has been outscored 82-40 in first halves this season, often waiting until the final 30 minutes to make a charge on the scoreboard.

A fumbled snap and a sack by Nebraska defensive lineman Khalil Davis killed the drive, forcing Northern Illinois into a 4th and 29.

Sophomore running back Tre Bryant has been solid with 51 catches for 299 yards and two touchdowns, and is expected to be able to play though a knee injury against the Huskies. A home game against the Mid-American Conference's Northern Illinois Huskies was supposed to be the ideal chance for a rebound, but the Huskies did not show up to be pushed around by a Big Ten team looking to regroup before heading into conference play.

The Huskers then took their first lead of the day on Lee's one-yard touchdown run with 11:14 left in the game to cap a six-play, 63-yard march by the Big Red.
