Nebraska’s struggles also had a lot to do with Illinois’ success. Quarterback Luke McCaffrey threw two interceptions and lost a fumble.
McCaffrey did carry the ball 20 times for 102 yards and a touchdown in the first half, but his lack of passing ability will limit the Huskers’ chances of a comeback in the second half. McCaffrey completed just 7-of-16 passes before the break.
Nebraska has won the last four meetings in this series.
