Nebraska punter Brian Buschini tags Iowa-Rutgers game with surprising 'entertaining' label
What many would deem a boring game, Nebraska punter Brian Buschini found entertaining. The sophomore said he watched the Iowa vs. Rutgers game and said “it was very entertaining,” which is not what most viewers would say about it.
"I watched that Iowa-Rutgers game and it was very entertaining…" said #Huskers punter Brian Buschini. Not a sentence uttered by all, but he was answering a question about how much he respects how many top-level punters there are in the Big Ten.

The game had just two total offensive touchdowns, the rest of the points came on field goals and defense.
Iowa quarterback Spencer Petras accounted for 148 passing yards and no touchdowns and the Hawkeyes had just 129 rushing yards. Rutgers had a slow offensive day as well with just one touchdown.
Iowa’s defense was the star on Saturday. The Hawkeyes had one fumble returned for a touchdown and one pick-6.
What Buschini found entertaining in Iowa’s win wasn’t the offense or defense, though. It was the punting.
The Hawkeyes punted the ball 6 times with Tory Taylor producing an average of 42.6 yards per punt and 4 punts inside the 20. Rutgers and punter Adam Korsak had 4 punts with 2 punts inside the 20.
