coach for 25 years, 21 of the 25 years nebraska played in a bowl game that was a new year's bowl game. they have only played in three since. how big would it be for mike riley? tommy am strong, gets outside. turns the corner, first down and more. flag down. >> referee: holding number 83 on the offense. ten-yard penal from the spot. second down. >> brock: thates alonzo moore. he can feel tommy armstrong. he is at the top. nearly a face mask. both of the teams, bob,
just not trusting your fundamentals and techniques. so much happens, as the environment gets bigger and the game is faster, you're not trusting your fundamentals. >> bob: a net gain after a couple yards. ozigbo has a first down to about the 47 yard line. >> brock: this is where you have to really start to manage this tommy armstrong, this is not just take five minutes. you still need to have tempo. they would love nothing more than four yards, five yards, six yards, be methodical. continue to run at the under belly of the defense. >> bob: ozigbo caught behind the
manu. a big tackle. and that is a loss of yards. >> brock: he may have missed the previous tackle. in the previous set of downs. did not miss that time. and i have said this now for 20 minutes on ever game action. when is a double move going to come? as aggressive as the corners have played and as aggressive as they are going to be, when is a double move going to hit them? >> bob: only one deep safety here. oregon they bring five. armstrong pulls it down to the 48 yard line. it will be third down and about nine. nebraska has all three time-outs. still a lot of time on the clock. over 4 minutes. but would it be four-down territory? would they will able to keep the defense on the field if they fail to pick up the third and nine? >> brock: i think you do.
and when they needed him the most. >> bob: armstrong, tries to beat the blitz. floats it to his tight end, cethan carter, can't hall it in. reggie daniels delivers the blow and the hit was clean. despite the fact that carter is shaken up and now a huge deon and if they go for it on fourth down, they will be going for it without arguably their best pass catches weapon in this situation. carter has to come off the field for at least a play. >> brock: you can see armstrong having a difficult time-out with the kramcramping and driving th ball. that ball has to be driven to your tight end. and reggie daniels did what
wide receiver from football in the touchdown pass. and that time, the center field safety daniels did just that. the legs, the cramping, the amount of energy that tommy armstrong has extended, you would have loved to see him plant his foot and drive the ball between the 1 and 1 of cethan carter. >> bob: the offense is not walking off with him. they are 1 for 2 on fourth down today. so here is that question. do you not trust your defense? do you try to punt it deep with four time-outs and try to get a stop? mike riley is basically saying he feels like his offense has to continue to the drive. that's going to give them their best chance. what do you think, brock?
nature. there is no hesitation. i would punt. >> bob: armstrong on fourth down. looking at a four-man rush. fires one over the middle and it is a strike to westerkamp. a fourth down conversion for the huskers keeps it drive alive in front of robinson. >> brock: mike riley has been consistent. he was aggressive in the first half. just enough protection for tommy armstrong. he loves it. he's times. he lost too many. the last seven against them. he wanted to trust his offense. >> bob: armstrong on a keeper. to the 34 yard line for a gain of four. tonight after texas and cal finish up, it's "sportscenter" at night. that's tonight on espn streaming
>> bob: nebraska leads by three. >> brock: tommy armstrong, an iv on the bench. a senior that has been through the ups and downs and right now, his team on the drink of maybe his biggest victory ever. what's it like to ben i got the power to know who's coming and when if i break down. you must be gerry, hey... in means getting more from your car insurance with drivewise. it's good to be in, good hands. ? ? ?

>> bob: nebraska leads by three. 2:30 left to go. oregon about to get the football back and they will deal with the atmosphere of memorial stadium when they do. it's a touch back. tommy armstrong, this touchdown run putting nebraska on top. >> brock: the ultimate team game so often comes down to one on one battles. look at ozigbo, and he wins his battle and allows armstrong to
>> bob: keeper for dakota prukop. to the 28 yard line. now you have a senior transfer quarterback unlike an en before. >> brock: never heard the noise in my headsets like i'm hearing right now. >> bob: play action. outside, wide open charles nelson. he is a speedster and has an extra gear all the way out to midfield. a good throw outside the numbers for prukop. >> brock: good throw. you move the chains and look
critical and nebraska having a tough time even getting lined up. >> bob: slant, bobbled, charles nelson. he's got another. there is aidan schneider. he has not attempted a kick of any kind today. prukop. lowers his shoulders and picks up the first down. and only another three or four yards or so would move oregon into what they believe is schneider's field goal range. >> brock: if this moment would be too big, he has proven to you in the second half, it is not.
he's got a first down if the play stands. >> referee: holding number 85 of the offense, ten-yard penalty from the spot of the foul. second down. correction, first down. >> brock: told you earlier, the indicators the back judges and side judges look for. are the arms out? are you reaching outside the frame? i don't know, in a moment like this, i'm letting the players dictate. i don't see a brutal hold. and i see every indicator to a referee to throw that flag. but what a critical penalty.
yards now for the ducks. first and 20. prukop. that ball's tipped and falls incomplete, intended for carrington. chris jones got a hand in. second down and 20 from midfield. >> brock: a team that has played 82 consecutive games with a touchdown pass. does not have one on the board and a quarterback who has yet to turn the ball o season, can't afford one now in the final 64 seconds. >> bob: they don't need a first down to get in to field goal range. four-man rush. prukop escapes the pocket, districts traffic. heaves a deep one. he's got a man. jump ball and it's broken up! williams got in front of charles nelson at the last moment. but nelson was behind the defense.
reach him. >> brock: incredible -- what an incredible game and incredible moments we're seeing down the stretch. just under thrown. williams, just enough speed to distract the incredibly tough nelson. it was third and 26 last quarter. third and 20 now. >> bob: only about 12 yards necessary to be in field goal range. prukop hit from behind. it's scooped up. running with it and brady aiello and the guard gets to the 46 yard line. well, that's not field goal range. now it's fourth down. >> brock: and freedom akinmoladun, the defensive end, both defensive ends for mike riley tonight, burdened by the scheme sbft the speed, finally has a opportunity to get home.
redshirt freshman. no tyrell crosby, knocked out of the game. and a redshirt freshman, the biggest moment of his life. unable to contain. if we think it's loud, and my ears are reverberating the way it is for 59 minutes, i can't imagine -- and mike riley, look at his face. this is why he came to nebraska. he wasn't looking to leave he gets a play here, this game's over.
nebraska brings a blitz. prukop is brought down! michael rose-ivey, all but ends the game for the huskers. >> brock: 1-5 were the cornhuskers last year. and as much as i despice rushers on third and 26, sign me up for pressure on fourth and 15. you had a mind set all game long to get after prukop. huh a mind set to go for it on fourth down in the first half. fourth and nine, four minutes to
on the line when it mattered the most. and i love that mind set. >> bob: it's victory formation. looks like he is going to call it a day rather than even use his time-outs. mark helfrich football. >> brock: curious move. they could have run the clock out with the three snaps. how about that guy? what must he be feeling right now? what a game. >> bob: it is official. a field goal win for nebraska over oregon. and the bath and the hug for
win against his old nemesis. >> brock: bob, you said earlier, the fans remember the past and they so badly want to get back to what they have done. they played a critical game. the noise, the environment played a huge role. >> bob: let's >> allison: coach, congratulations. what is going through your mind right now? >> boy, what a great game. both teams fought back. it was back and forth. really, really proud of our team. kept our poise. i thought we were really nervous at the sport. it didn't look like we were crisp at all. but really tough minded down the stretch. >> allison: what the emotions you're feeling right now to beat oregon? >> i love it. this team right now this is
everything they have done for us at this stage, it is awesome. to be 3-0 going into the big ten conference. >> allison: you told us that oregon is bold. how did you have to be bold to win this game? specifically going for it on fourth down in the fourth quarter? >> well, i thought that might be the last time we see the ball. and somebody told me that fortune favors the ball. we had to just leave it out here today. our kids fou we might as well goer it. >> allison: tommy armstrong requiring an iv late in the game. what happen he did show you today? >> he loves football. he is really tough. he competes like crazy. it's awesome. he played a great football game. >> allison: coach, thank you so much. >> thank you. >> bob: fortune favors the ball, brock. they go for it on fourth down and get it. two-point conversions hurt oregon.
>> brock: this place was rocking this afternoon. >> bob: win for nebraska and effort for the ducks as well. usc/stanford at 8:00 on abc. so long from lincoln. we go back to the studio. guys, welcome in, stan verrett along with mack brown and mark may. at nebraska, he puts out the win. >> more importantly, they lost the games last year. and huge win for mike riley and the cornhuskers. >> the crew that called the game did a terrific job. and the great point they made, after the two-point conversion after a touchdown, just kick the extra points. if they do, they win the game. >> they are going to have a good team and they lost freeman today. hopefully he will get back. >> nebraska out to 3-0.
this game tonight, usc and stanford gives you a look at christian mccaffery, the abc. that is coming up at 8:00 eastern. in progress right now, nick saban and alabama taking on mississippi. ole miss beat alabama the last two years. nobody has ever beaten nick saban three times in a row since he's been at alabama. downyoungblood has it and going with it. >> gets to the quarterback. scoop and score.
>> turnovers were a problem last year. and deron payne with a defensive touchdown frp the tide. >> alabama's going to win because they played great defense and they force the turnovers for scoreses here. >> second and three. damian harris, 67 yards and finally drag him down. say he was down at the 1. so two plays later, it will be scarborough who will finish the job for a one yard touchdown. >> ne tide. >> tide just added another defensive touchdown. jonathon allen, 290 pounds. >> look what i pounds. >> looks like mark may runs for a touchdown. >> with a jet pack on my back. >> he would have gotten cramps. >> the tide in control, 48-30 as they head down to four minutes to go in the game.
what jumped out at you looking at it? >> alabama is a complete team. young quarterbacks getting better. they are the number one team in the country. in trouble, a time that eas had their number on the road. they come out and dominate. >> hostile environment for alabama. and when you look at jalen hertz on the road, in e has made big plays. he has settled down. >> jalen hertz making an impression. and de'andre francois, from florida state, on the road with his team from louisville. honoring muhammad ali and the butterfly decal on the field. and lamar jackson, floating and stinging himself. >> he is so special. we do it himself. he can run, he can pass.
made him a better passer. >> and smith on the receiving end of the touchdown pass. >> the speed, the finesse and able to get to the there for a tackle. >> 362 total yards. five total touchdowns. louisville, 63-20. michigan, they were down early in the game, the wovm reens come back to win 45-28. and speight, 229 yards and a usc and stanford. christian mccaffery is where we start. >> nobody is able to stop him. receiving the ball, rushing the ball or special teams. that is one thing that usc has to slow down. if they can't stop him, they have to slow him down. >> usc has to do what? >> he has to give it to him in space. he has tremendous speed. >> all right. usc and stanford, getting ready to go.
