Mickey Joseph’s first game as Nebraska’s interim head coach is going about how everyone expected.

There’s no way anybody really expected the Huskers to legitimately compete with the No. 6 team in the country in his first true test. Perhaps his best case scenario was simply staying afloat.

Unfortunately, the Huskers are not staying afloat. Nebraska is down 35-7 heading into the halftime break.

Nebraska scored on the opening drive, seeing Casey Thompson connect with Trey Palmer for a 7-0 score. Around then is when things started to go downhill.

Oklahoma rattled off 35 straight following Nebraska’s opening drive score. The Sooners have gotten it done on the ground, rushing for 3 touchdowns by 3 separate players.
