Huskers tie it up against Miller-less OSU
By Adam Rittenberg
LINCOLN, Neb. -- We've got a new ballgame.
Nebraska has erased a 21-point deficit and tied the game behind a resurgent offense led by Taylor Martinez. The Huskers look like a completely different team on both sides of the ball, while Ohio State seems stunned since the departure of top quarterback Braxton Miller.
Senior Joe Bauserman has struggled in relief of Miller, badly misfiring on several passes. It's hard to see the Ohio State offense scoring with Bauserman in the game, and the Buckeyes wasted a good chance when they reached Nebraska territory but opted not to set up a more manageable field-goal try.
It's tied at 27-27, but the Huskers have all the momentum right now.
