Mickey Joseph took over a Nebraska that was struggling to find any momentum. However, the program has finally seemed to find solid ground after being in a collapse where things just kept getting worse.

Joseph won his first game as interim DC in Week 5 against Indiana, and team is buzzing.

Joseph addressed the mood of the team following the win (via the Lincoln Journal Star):

“Kids these days, they have to see it,” he said. “I think (the players) are in a good place mentally right now,” he said. “I think they turned over a new leaf. They finally got it done Saturday night. I think now they can see it.”

Casey Thompson made some clutch plays in the fourth quarter while the new defense under Bill Busch was able to come up with some big stops down the stretch. Now, Nebraska has a spark of momentum to revive its season.

First, they have to win a B1G road test against Rutgers. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. EST Friday on FS1.
