Not prepared? Nebraska starts Oklahoma game with 2 false start penalties
Nebraska is off to a sloppy start vs. Oklahoma.
The Huskers gave up a touchdown on the Sooners’ opening drive. Then, when it was their chance to respond offensively, they committed two false start penalties to start their drive.

Nebraska ended up moving the chains, but it’s not a good sign for the Huskers’ ability to stay disciplined as a big underdog in Norman. The offensive line ended up committing two more penalties on this drive — another false start and an unnecessary roughness penalty — before settling for a 51-yard field goal.
This game is the 50th anniversary of the “Game of the Century” between Nebraska and Oklahoma, which the Huskers won.
This is the first meeting between the old Big 12 rivals since the Huskers left for the Big Ten. OU won the previous contest, defeating Nebraska 23-20 in the 2010 Big 12 Championship Game.
Oklahoma holds a 7-3 lead over Nebraska after the first quarter.
