Frost Offenses Traditionally Impressive on Opening Drives
One common theme of a Scott Frost-led offense has been a fast start, and that has held true for Frost's tenure in Lincoln. Nebraska has scored points on three of seven drives in 2019.

Nebraska received the opening kickoff against South Alabama and drove nine plays and 81 yards for a touchdown to a take a 7-0 lead. At Colorado, NU drove 96 yards in five plays on its first possession to take a 7-0 lead. The Huskers opened with a field goal on the game's first drive against Northern Illinois. The opening-drive success has continued a theme throughout Frost's head coaching tenure. 

• Nebraska scored on its first possession seven times in 12 games last season, including six of the final seven games. All seven of NU's opening scoring drives resulted in touchdowns. In Frost's two seasons, Nebraska has scored on its opening possession 10 times in 19 games.

• NU received the opening kickoff nine times in 2018 and scored touchdowns on six of those drives while punting only once. The Huskers had a game-opening touchdown drive to take a 7-0 lead in five straight games during the Big Ten Conference season.

• The Huskers scored on nearly 60 percent of their opening possessions in 2018, even with a pair of drive-ending turnovers in opponent territory. Nebraska's average touchdown drive covered more than 74 yards, including one 80-yard touchdown march and five 75-yard scoring drives.

• Over the last three seasons - 2018-19 at Nebraska and 2017 at UCF - Frost's offenses have scored a touchdown on their opening possession 18 times in 32 games (56 percent). The average length of the touchdown drive in that span is 74 yards.

• In three-plus years as a head coach, Frost's offenses have scored on their opening drive 23 times in 45 games, with 21 touchdowns and two field goals. In 85 games over six-plus seasons as a play-caller, Frost's offenses have scored on their first possession of the game 44 times, putting points on the board in more than half of their opening possessions.

• Frost's Opening Drive Scoring Percentage: 52% (44 of 85 drives)    
• Frost's Opening Drive Touchdown Percentage: 45% (38 of 85 drives)

Blackshirt Defense Looks for Strong Second Half
The Nebraska defense has focused on taking a step forward in 2019, specifically causing more turnovers and big impact plays. Nebraska has shown that ability in stretches this season, particularly in home wins over South Alabama and Northern Illinois. 

• Nebraska has 11 takeaways through seven games to rank seventh in the Big Ten in that category. 

• Nebraska had five takeaways against South Alabama, including four in the second half. The five takeaways matched the most in two seasons under Scott Frost (Illinois, 2018) and was only the fourth time since 2010 that a Nebraska defense recorded five or more takeaways.

• Nebraska scored a pair of defensive touchdowns against the Jaguars–a 38-yard interception return by Eric Lee Jr. in the third quarter and a fumble recovery in the end zone by Alex Davis in the fourth quarter to cap the scoring.  The two defensive touchdowns marked the first time Nebraska scored a pair of defensive touchdowns since having two interception returns for touchdowns against Southern Miss in 2013. Nebraska is seventh in the nation in defensive touchdowns. 

• Lee's interception return for a touchdown was the first by a Husker since Marcus Newby had an interception for a touchdown against Northwestern in 2017.

• Davis' fumble recovery for a touchdown was the first by the Huskers since Josh Mitchell returned a fumble 57 yards for a touchdown against Miami in 2014. 

• Nebraska also scored on a 76-yard punt return for a touchdown by JD Spielman in the third quarter. The three non-offensive touchdowns were a first for Nebraska since the Huskers had three defensive touchdowns in a 31-3 win over Wake Forest in 2005. 

• NU's effort against South Alabama marked the 16th time in school history the Huskers have scored on offense, defense and special teams in the same game.  It was the first time since 2012 NU had accomplished that feat, and the first instance against an FBS opponent since 2009 at Colorado.

• Nebraska has added six takeaways over the past six games, including a critical interception by Lamar Jackson against Northwestern with 1:00 remaining to set up a game-winning field goal.
 
• Nebraska has averaged 2.0 takeaways in its past 11 games. Prior to that, Nebraska averaged 1.0 takeaway in its 30 previous games spanning three seasons.
 
• The Huskers have forced three or more turnovers in four of their last 12 games. Before the current stretch, NU had not forced three turnovers in 30 games dating back to game two in 2016.

• Nebraska has forced 18 fumbles in its past 12 games. Prior to that, Nebraska had forced just 14 fumbles in its previous 34 games. 

• Defensive coordinator Erik Chinander has a history of producing disruptive defenses. In 44 games as a defensive coordinator (UCF, Nebraska) Chinander's defenses have scored 11 touchdowns.

Bootle and Jackson Break Up Opponent Passing Games
Junior Dicaprio Bootle and senior Lamar Jackson team up to give Nebraska one of the Big Ten's top cornerback tandems. Jackson has two interceptions and a team-high nine 11 breakups in 2019. Bootle ranks second on the team with five breakups. 

• Jackson is tied for fourth in the nation in passes defended at 1.9 per game and is second nationally with 11 breakups. Jackson had his second interception of the season with 1:00 remaining against Northwestern. His pick and 11-yard return set up Nebraska's game-winning field goal. 

• Jackson had a career-high four breakups against Northern Illinois, bettering his previous career high of two breakups in a single game. He has posted two breakups in three additional games this season. 

• Jackson is two breakups shy of the top 10 in Nebraska single-season breakups. He is within striking distance of the school record of 17 PBU by DeJuan Groce in 2000. 

• In 2018, Bootle broke up 15 passes and had 39 tackles in his first season as a starter. Bootle helped Nebraska rank 34th nationally in pass efficiency defense. 

• Bootle ranked ninth nationally in breakups and 16th nationally in passes defended per game (1.3) in 2018. His 15 pass breakups ranked second on Nebraska's season chart and were the most since Groce's school-record 17 PBU in 2000. 

• Bootle earned third-team All-Big Ten honors last year, becoming the first Husker cornerback to be honored by the conference in four seasons.

Safety Cam Taylor-Britt joins the cornerback tandem as a play-maker in the Nebraska secondary. Taylor-Britt began the season at corner before shifiting to safety. He has caused four fumbles this season, the most by a Husker in seven seasons. His four forced fumbles rank fourth in the nation. Taylor also has 32 tackles, four tackles for loss, two interceptions and two pass breakups.

Husker Offense Showing Versatility
The 2019 Nebraska offense has shown the versatility to both strike quickly and drive the length of the field. 
 
• Against Colorado, Nebraska had two touchdown drives of 95 yards or longer (95 and 96). That marked the first time the Huskers have had two 95-yard scoring drives in the same game since the 2000 Fiesta Bowl against Tennessee (97- and 99-yard touchdown drives). 

• Through seven games, Nebraska has 14 scoring drives that have covered 75 yards or more. 

• Nebraska had two long scoring plays at Colorado with touchdown passes of 65 (Martinez-Spielman) and 75 yards (Martinez-Washington). That marked the first time the Huskers had multiple 65-yard pass plays in the same game since 2006 against Kansas. 

• Nebraska flashed its quick-strike ability and explosiveness against Northern Illinois. Nebraska produced nine plays of 20 yards or more against the Huskies, including eight before halftime. The eight first-half chunk plays matched Nebraska's combined total in its first two games. 

• Nebraska had a pair of 60-yard runs against Northern Illinois. Dedrick Mills had a career-long 61-yard run in the first quarter, and Maurice Washington had a personal-best 60-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. That marked the second time since last November that Nebraska produced a pair of 60-yard runs in the same game. 

• The Huskers had a season-high 14 plays of 20 yards or more against Illinois. In the process, Nebraska topped 300 yards in both rushing and passing to mark just the second time in school history the Huskers have reached that milestone. 

• Nebraska's 674 yards of total offense at Illinois was its most against a conference opponent since posting 710 yards against Kansas State in 2007. 

Spielman Continues to Climb Husker Charts
Junior wide receiver JD Spielman has already made Husker history as the only player in program history to have a 200-yard receiving game. Spielman is also leaving his mark on Nebraska's career record book. He has 145 career catches for 2,117 yards, ranking fifth at Nebraska in career receptions and sixth in career yardage. 

• Spielman reached 2,000 and 1,000 career receiving yards faster than any other Husker. He hit 2,000 yards at Illinois on Sept. 21, breaking the 2,000-yard barrier in 25 games. He reached 1,000 career yards in only 15 games, eclipsing Heisman winner Johnny Rodgers (16 games).
 
• Spielman needs 45 catches and 630 yards to become Nebraska's all-time leader in both categories. He averaged 61 catches and 842 receiving yards per season in his first two years. On a per-game basis in his 28-game career, Spielman averages 5.2 receptions and 75.6 receiving yards. 

• Spielman is the only player in school history to record 100 catches prior to his junior season.

• Spielman owns the only two 200-yard receiving games in Husker history (200 yards vs. Ohio State in 2017 and 209 yards at Wisconsin in 2018).

• Spielman is the only wide receiver in school history to have two career games with double-digit receptions (11 vs. Ohio State in 2017 and 10 vs. Purdue in 2018). Running back Marlon Lucky is the only other Husker to have two career games with double-digit catches.

• Spielman had more than 800 receiving yards in each of his first two seasons, joining Johnny Rodgers and Stanley Morgan Jr. as the only Huskers with two 800-yard receiving seasons. No Husker has ever had three 800-yard receiving seasons. With 469 yards in seven games, Spielman is on pace to reach that plateau again in 2019. 

• Spielman had more than 50 catches in each of his first two seasons, joining Johnny Rodgers, Kenny Bell and Stanley Morgan Jr. as the only players in program history with multiple 50-catch seasons. No Husker has ever had three 50-catch seasons.

• Spielman opened the 2019 season with a 76-yard punt return for a touchdown against South Alabama, marking his second career punt return score. He had a 77-yard punt return touchdown last season against Bethune-Cookman. He also had a 99-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in his first career touch against Arkansas State in the 2017 season opener. Spielman is one of only eight players in program history to return both a punt and kickoff for a touchdown.

• Spielman had a 65-yard TD reception at Colorado, his sixth career touchdown of at least 65 yards. The 65-yard catch at Colorado was one of four Spielman receptions of at least 40 yards in 2019. 

• Spielman had seven catches for 160 yards at Illinois, marking his third-highest receiving total at Nebraska. It was his sixth career 100-yard receiving game. 

Robinson Making Big Impact in Freshman Season
Freshman receiver Wan'Dale Robinson provides Nebraska with an explosive receiving, rushing and return threat in 2019.

A true freshman from Frankfort, Ky., Robinson keyed Big Ten wins against Illinois and Northwestern. At Illinois, he was called on as a running back and had 19 carries for 89 yards and a touchdown, while also catching eight passes for 79 yards and two touchdowns. His play in the 42-38 win earned him Big Ten Freshman-of-the-Week Honors.

Against Northwestern, Robinson again won the Big Ten freshman weekly honor. He totaled 186 all-purpose yards, including seven catches for a career-high 123 yards, the most receiving yards ever by a Husker true freshman. He had a career-long 42-yard touchdown run in the first quarter, a career-long 49-yard catch in the third quarter and a key 32-yard catch on Nebraska's game-winning drive. 

• Robinson ranks third nationally among all freshmen and leads all Power Five Conference freshmen in all-purpose yards per game (105.4 ypg).

• Robinson's 336 receiving yards and 27 receptions are the most ever by a Nebraska true freshman.

Lincoln, Neb. – The Nebraska baseball team took an early 1-0 lead, but allowed seven runs in the last five innings to fall to Kansas, 7-1, in a 12-inning exhibition game at Hawks Field on Saturday afternoon.

Spencer Schwellenbach put the Huskers on the scoreboard in the bottom of the first when he blasted a solo home run to left center field. It was one of eight hits for the Big Red on the day.

Starting pitcher Colby Gomes tossed 2.0 no-hit scoreless innings as one of 11 Husker pitchers to make an appearance against the Jayhawks. The two teams held each other scoreless during innings 2 through 7, as Cade Povich, Max Schreiber, Caleb Feekin, Sayer Diederich and Trey Kissack each threw 1.0 scoreless frame.

Kansas took its first lead of the game in the top of the eighth with a pair of runs. NU allowed three hits, including a home run, during the frame. In the bottom of the eighth, Drew Gilin laced a leadoff double and advanced to third on a wild pitch. But he remained stranded, as each of the next three Husker batters produced outs.

KU tacked on one run in the top of the ninth on a solo home run. Seeking to trim the deficit, Keegan Watson hit a one-out single up the middle before advancing to second on a groundout. He made it to third on a wild pitch, but remained stranded.

The Jayhawks plated one run in the top of the 10th to extend their lead to 4-1. In the bottom of the 10th, Leighton Banjoff and Luke Roskam managed back-to-back singles to open the frame. However, three consecutive outs kept the Big Red from scoring.

Kansas added three runs on three hits in the top of the 12th to extend their lead to 7-1.

Set 1: Sun had three kills on three swings early in the match, the third of which started a 5-0 run that put Nebraska ahead 10-6. Schwarzenbach put away a joust at the net, and Sweet had a kill between Maryland hitting errors. After Maryland cut the lead to 11-10, a Terps' service error and a kill by Kubik made it 13-10 Big Red, and Schwarzenbach added her third, fourth and fifth kills to give NU a 20-15 lead. Sweet had a kill a pair of kills and teamed up with Stivrins for a block, and Nebraska took the first set, 25-19. Schwarzenbach had five kills on .571 hitting to lead the Huskers in the set.  

Set 2: NU trailed 5-4 when Stivrins terminated a kill to start a 4-0 run. She combined with Hames for a block, and then Hames dumped a kill to the floor before Kubik hammered an overpass for an 8-5 lead. Kills by Sun and Kubik put the Huskers up 12-7, but Maryland cut the lead to two at 12-10. Sun, Kubik and Stivrins added kills as the Huskers went up 17-12. Sun, Stivrins and Kubik helped the Huskers pull away down the stretch to a 25-16 win.   

Set 3: The Huskers began the set with a kill by Sun, a solo block and a kill by Sweet and an ace by Hames for a 4-0 lead. Kubik posted back-to-back kills for a 7-1 lead, and Stivrins pounded a kill before Hayley Densberger served an ace and Sun added another kill for a 13-5 advantage. Hames dumped her third kill, and Schwarzenbach combined for back-to-back blocks, one with Sun and one with Sweet, to keep the Huskers up eight at 16-8. Sweet and Stivrins posted NU's fourth block of the set, and Megan Miller served an ace for a 22-11 lead. The Huskers' dominant third set ended the match, 25-13.

The McCook Community College volleyball team closed out the home schedule Saturday at the Peter and Dolores Graff Events Center sweeping Trinidad State Junior College, 25-20, 25-21, 25-18. In doing so the Lady Indians reach the 20-win mark for the third straight season.

“I’m happy that the sophomores could leave the Peter and Dolores Graff Events Center with a win on their record in their last game here,” said MCC Coach Hayley Kobza.

Sophomore Mallory Brown, (Colorado Springs) led MCC with 12 kills and freshman Fernanda Canedo, (Cochabamba, Boliva) had 10.

“Mallory Brown played a big game, especially in the third set, she showed what she is capable of doing and we’ve got to get her on a rhythm to do that all the time,” Kobza said.

Sophomores Bailey Honn, (McCook) had five kills and Maddie Kleewein, (North Platte) three.

Freshmen Kallie Cathcart, (Holly, Colo.) had four kills and three block assists and Jayceea Hanson, (McCook) had a pair of kills.

“Chandler Nelson set for us in our 6-2 offense, she came in and I thought she did a fabulous job,” Kobza said.

Trinidad State falls to 7-21 and 1-6 in the Region IX south division.

MCC improves to 20-9 and 4-3 in south sub-Region IX. Next up for the lady Indians are three straight road sub-region games starting Friday at Lamar (3-18, 0-5) then Saturday at Northeastern Junior College (16-7, 2-2). MCC knocked off the Plainswomen at home Oct. 5.

“We’ve got four days until we travel for the weekend and we’ve got a lot of things to fix and we’ve got to get our groove back because we’re not playing the best volleyball that we can play,” Kobza said. “We’ve got four matches before regionals so we’ve got to give it all we got.”

After a Halloween night game at Scottsbluff against 16th-ranked Western Nebraska, the Lady Indians will close out the regular season Nov. 2 at Concordia, Kan. for a non-conference game with Cloud County.

The Region IX Tournament is set for Nov. 7-9 at Sterling, Colo.

1 Singles-Zion Moyer, 3-1, 5th Place Medalist

Def B. Ingracia, Lincoln Christian 6-4, 6-2
Lost to #7 C. Barrett, Skutt Catholic 5-7, 5-7
Def #6 H. Wingrove, Waverly 8-1
Def #8 L. Power, Hastings 8-3

Zion had a solid state tournament going 3-1.  He showed a lot of heart and perseverance playing through a injury to his lower leg.  He got tested right at the get go, with a athletic player from Lincoln Christian.  They played out some long points and Zion got moved around a lot.  But he was able to settle in and pick up a win.  
He then played a lefty form Skutt Catholic.  He had a powerful forehand and effective serve.  Zion played him tough, but just couldn't get a break to take a lead of any amount.  Friday Zion played Waverly and came away with a nice 8-1 win.  He played well and was focused.  He got some mobility back and that made a big difference in the match outcome.  
In the 5th place match, Zion defeated a common opponent from Hastings. Zion played with confidence and focus and worked his way to a 8-3 victory. It was great to see Zion close out his career with a win and a nice showing at state with a 5th place medal.  His final record at 1 singles was 27-6 and 34-7 overall including doubles.     

2 Singles-Mason Michaelis, 4-0, State Champion

Def D. Stein, O/B/T 6-1, 6-1
Def #7 A. Hammer, York 6-2, 6-0
Def #3 C. Norris, Skutt Catholic 6-4, 6-0
Def #4 William Mallisee, Mt. Michael 0-6, 6-3, 7-5

Mason had a super run to the championship match.  He breezed through his first two matches Thursday with not much of a challenge.  On Friday, Mason faced a good challenge from Skutt Catholic.  he won a close first set, but then overpowered his opponent to close out the match and advance in straight sets.  
In the championship, Mason got off to a tough start.  he struggled with the wind and his opponent played a very consistent set.  In the second set Mason jumped out to a good lead and had little trouble closing out the set 6-3.  In the third set Mason again jumped out to a nice lead at 4-1.  His opponent them went on a run and took a 5-4 lead.  Mason regained his composure and went on a 3-0 run to win the match and singles championshp 7-5.  
Mason closes out the season with a 37-3 singles record and 44-4 overall record along with a state singles championship.  Mason also earned a milestone mark, with his 100th career win with a first round win at state.  He had a pretty special season.
  
1 Doubles-Logan Barenberg/Isaac Hinze, 3-1, 2nd Place Medalists

Def H. Goodwin/E. Mins, Lexinton 6-2, 6-1
Def #6 M. Neville/K. Holm, Ralston 6-1, 7-5
Def #2 P. Rosenfels/E. Pentel, Mt. Michael 6-4, 3-6, 6-4
Lost to #1 H. Royal/H. Royal, York 7-6 (4-7), 6-0, 4-6

Logan and Isaac played with great focus on Thursday, running through their opponents in straight sets.  On Friday they met up with the #2 seed from Mt. Michael in the semifinal match.  they got off to a solid start taking set one 6-4.  In set two they saw Mt. Michael up their play and got behind early.  It's tough to comeback on a team of that caliber.  In the third set, the boys played awesome.  They jumped out to a quick 4-1 lead and never let up.  They closed out the match with a 6-4 third set score, which set up a championship showdown with top seeded York.
Set one was very evenly contested and York took the set in a tie-breaker.  Logan and Isaac really stepped up their play and cruised to a 6-0 second set win.  With the momentum on their side, they built a early lead.  York then got hot and took a 5-4 lead.  We had our chances to close them out, but York refused to give up.  It was a fun match to watch, as Logan and Isaac really elevated their play and almost came away with a championship.
They close out their season with a 34-6 doubles record and second place medal at state.  Logan went 40-9 overall and Isaac went 43-6.  
    
2 Doubles-Brandan Eckhardt/Evan Humphrey, 0-1

Lost to #11 D. Saathoff/Z. Zimmermann 4-6, 4-6

Brandan and Evan drew a re-match with Beatrice, a team they just played the Saturday before state.  Beatrice played us tough and the outcome was close.  We just couldn't get a lead and had to play catch up the entire match.  I commend Brandan and Evan on their play, as they battled and gave it their best shot.
They close out their season with a 20-10 mark.  Brandan compiled a 29-15 overall record and Evan established a 29-11 overall record.

For the second straight Friday, The McCook Community College volleyball team lost a straight-set home match to a sub-region opponent. Otero Junior College dumped MCC 25-17, 25-18, 25-19.

“I don’t feel like we came out and played MCC volleyball and we just have to go on from here especially since we have a match tomorrow,” said MCC Coach Hayley Kobza.

Freshman Fernanda Canedo, (Cochabamba, Boliva) led MCC with 12 kills.

Sophomores Mallory Brown, (Colorado Springs) and Bailey Honn, (McCook) each had four kills and freshman Kallie Cathcart, (Holly, Colo.) had three.

“We had some players lose a little bit of confidence in themselves and we can’t have that at this point in the season,” Kobza said. “We need to be able to build ourselves up on our own and not rely on everybody else around to cheer us on.”

MCC is 19-9 on the season and 3-3 in the south sub-region. Otero improves to 17-7 and 5-1 in sub-region play.

“Tomorrow’s a new day and we’re going to come out and with a completely different attitude and bring everything we have,” Kobza said.

The Lady Indians will take on 7-19 Trinidad State at 4 p.m. for the final home match of the season.
