There was little drama about the outcome, too, a nice change from Week 1, when BYU stunned the Huskers with a last-second Hail Mary to snap their nation’s best 29-game winning streak in season openers.

Whatever the case, Nebraska is 1-1, following its 48-9 rout vs. South Alabama at Memorial Stadium.

Don’t think the Huskers forgot about the importance of the win. They presented their new coach with the game ball in the locker room, with quarterback Tommy Armstrong doing the honors.
