Huskers Shut Down Cowboys

Lincoln, NE-The Blackshirts are back!.  What a debut for new Huskers' defensive coordinator Bo Pelini and the Nebraska defense.  The Big Red turned 5 Oklahoma State turnovers into 14 points, thus propelling Nebraska to a 17-7 win.  The key play came in the 3rd quarter when junior linebacker Barrett Ruud recovered a Tatum Bell fumble and returned in 15 yards for a touchdown that gave Nebraska a 10-7 lead.  Judd Davies scored on a 2 yard touchdown runner a little later to cap off the scoring.  The Huskers will be at home again on Saturday September 6th when Utah State comes to Lincoln.
