Huskers secondary ices Idaho
By ESPN.com staff
Knowing they couldn't hang with Nebraska on the line of scrimmage, I figured Idaho would try to throw it around a little bit, a move that would get them in trouble against a talented and opportunistic Huskers secondary that is among the nation's best.
That's been the case in the second quarter, as Husker defensive backs DeJon Gomes and Rickey Thenarse have intercepted Idaho's Nathan Enderle and returned both for touchdowns to put the Huskers up 31-3 at halftime.
The Vandals won't be coming back from that.
The Huskers could use a few of those plays from the secondary when they meet up with Jake Locker and Washington next week.
