Awesome game for the Huskers! By far the best bowl game so far this year. Turns out Mark May (ESPN Gameday analyst) was 12 or more points short in his prediction. He and really nobody else gave NU a chance to win this game let alone make a good game of it. May said Michigan would blow out NU and score in the 40's. 14 of Michigan's points came off of turnovers and NU had one touchdown called back. Our running game was juiced up as RB Cory Ross ran for 166 yards, an Alamo Bowl record. Junior QB Zach Taylor, who's body is probably packed in ice right now (he got drilled a good 15 times and spent a good chunk of time on his keister), won the player of the game with three TD passes. Great win against a great Michigan team. The extra practice time and closing the season with three wins just about puts us back where NU football belongs...playing BCS caliber teams on New Years Day. Next up, USC on September 16, 2006 in Los Angeles. Whoaaaaaa Nellie!
