Heinrich Haarberg caps key drive for Nebraska with 2nd-quarter TD vs. MSU
Heinrich Haarberg and Nebraska entered Week 10 playing for a shot in the postseason with bowl eligibility on the line against Michigan State. After a sluggish start to open the game, Haarberg and the Huskers woke up in the second quarter.
After Haarberg threw an interception at the end of the first quarter, Nebraska’s defense was able to set up and force a quick 3-and-out. That established some great field position for the Huskers as the offense went to work.
On that drive, Haarberg accounted for the big gainer with a 27-yard connection to Thomas Fidone II. Emmett Johnson also delivered an 11-yard pickup on 3rd-and-10.
The drive eventually rolled inside the 10-yard line with a 2nd-and-goal from the 5. That play was a read-option with Haarberg tucking the ball and following his blocking for the score.

The Huskers will look to build on that drive moving forward, but it’s a positive sign in the second quarter.
