The Dundy County Stratton Tigers came to Cambridge to take on the Trojans Friday, October 12th. It was a game that had District Championship and State Playoff implications at hand. If the Tigers were to win they would be the district champs with Southwest having lost earlier in the day. Cambridge needed to win this game and then win again next Thursday against Hitchcock County. 

The Trojans opened the game with the ball and would drive 58 yards on 6 plays with quarterback Paxton Ross taking it the last 10 yards for the TD. Preston Carbaugh added the extra point to put the Trojans up 7-0. After a DCS punt the Trojans would have the first of their 3 first half turnovers as Lane Shillington intercepted a Paxton Ross pass and returned it to the Cambridge 12 yard line. The Tigers would return the favor 3 plays later as Preston Carbaugh would intercept Quade Myers pass at the 2 yard line. Cambridge would capitalize on the DCS turnover driving 78 yards on 7 plays and Drew Sprinkle would cap it off with a 12 yard touchdown run. The PAT failed and the Trojans led 13-0. The Dundy County Stratton would get on the board on their next possesion as they went 54 yards on 5 plays and Serbondo Diaz scored the first of his 3 touchdowns, this one from 34 yards out and after the 2 point PAT the score was 13-8. Cambridge started their next drive at their own 15 and it would only take one play as Paxton Ross hit Deryk Huxoll for a 65-yard touchdown. The Trojans were successful on the 2 point PAT and led 21-8 after the first quarter. 

The Tigers would open the second quarter with a 7 play 60-yard drive which saw Serbondo Diaz get his second TD this time from 31 yards away. After a successful 2 point PAT it was 21-16. The Tigers would get their first lead of the night when Dominic Sis intercepted Paxton Ross and took it 21 yards for the pick 6, the PAT failed but the Tigers were up 22-21. Cambridge would answer with a TD of their own as Paxton Ross and Deryk Huxoll hooked up for the second time from 21 yards away to put Cambridge up 27-22 capping a 4 play 47 yard drive. Serbondo Diaz took the kickoff and returned it to the Cambridge 34. DCS took 8 plays to go the 34 yards and Quade Myers would score from 9 yards out to give the Tigers the lead 28-27. Paxton Ross got his second rushing touchdown of the game on Cambridge's next possession as he went 54 yards to give the Trojans a halftime lead 33-28.

DCS scored first in the second half as the went 66 yards in 11 plays and Diaz got his final TD from 8 yards to give the Tigers the lead 34-33. The Tigers got a turnover on downs and were driving from down the field when Preston Carbaugh intercepted Quade Myers in the end zone. 

The Trojans first possession of the 4th quarter started at their own 15 and they went 65 yards in 8 plays and Spencer Rice would score the TD from 7 yards out to put the Tojans up 39-34. The Tigers had one last chance. Starting from their own 25 the Tigers drove down the field and Serbondo Diaz crossed the goal line from 9 yards for what looked like the go-ahead touchdown, but a holding penalty would nullify the score and Cambridge would sack Myers on the next play to end the threat. The Trojans were able to run out the clock and get the win 39-34.

LINCOLN, Neb. | PORTLAND, Ore. – The University of Nebraska Huskers and adidas Football today unveiled the new adidas Primeknit A1 ‘Memorial Tribute’ alternate uniforms, which will make their on-field debut for the Cornhuskers’ game against Illinois on Saturday, November 10.

2018 marks 100 years since the culmination of World War I (WWI). The new adidas Primeknit A1 ‘Memorial Tribute’ alternate uniforms pay tribute to the 100th anniversary of the end of the WWI and celebrates Memorial Stadium. The venue was originally named Memorial Stadium to honor more than 700 Nebraskans who died in WWI and those who served in the Civil War, Spanish-American Wars. Memorial Stadium also honors Nebraskans who served in WWII, Korea, Vietnam and more.

In collaboration with University of Nebraska Athletics, the new adidas Primeknit A1 ‘Memorial Tribute’ alternate uniform was specifically inspired by the first team to play in Memorial Stadium and continues the school’s age-old tradition of honoring Nebraska’s veterans. The field hosted its first football game on October 20, 1923 and this will be the Huskers’ 96th season at the stadium.

Similar to the 1923 Huskers’ jerseys, the 2018 Nebraska ‘Memorial Tribute’ uniform features a throwback tonal, paneled front. The buff-colored pant is designed to resemble the first façade of Memorial Stadium, which was also a characteristic of the 1923 uniform. Additionally, the newalternate uniform showcases key aspects of the 85,000-seat arena, including the numbers and fonts which were inspired by the original clock in Memorial Stadium.

Four quotes are inscribed on each corner of Nebraska’s stadium that communicate honor and glory of the state’s fallen heroes. University of Nebraska Athletics chose to showcase the quote in the Southwest corner, which is centered above each number on the new jerseys. It reads, “Not the victory but the action; Not the goal but the game; In the deed the glory.” The words have gone on to become famous among Husker Nation and are a motto for the team.

Merging style and innovation, the Huskers’ new adidas Primeknit A1 ‘’Memorial Tribute’ alternate football uniform redefines the compression silhouette and takes the innovation and design of football jerseys and pants to the next level, with an emphasis on full range of motion, fit, form and function.

A new body-mapping jersey design features an all-new ribbed knit pattern on the chest and shoulder pads to produce a refined fit, while knit engineered mesh channels feature Climacool technology to provide enhanced breathability and cooling zones. The development of a new innovative chevron pattern on the chest of the jersey aligns with a player’s shoulder pads and generates increased durability for high-contact zones for protection and the inside of the jersey features silicon grip patterns on the shoulders to lock the pads in place.

Delivering a clean, iconic look, Primeknit finishes inspired by the adidas UltraBOOST and NMD are incorporated into the collar, while sleeve cuff and hem for added comfort and a new infinity neckline eliminates distractions and allows for a full range of motion. Additionally, the revolutionary Primeknit A1 football pants have been re-engineered with just two seams and bonded pockets for added comfort and a clean compression look and feel, along ribbed Primeknit on the knees for added durability.

To complete the head-to-toe look, the team will wear a replica 1923 helmet with a contemporary form, complete with cream-white stitched strapping details, along with traditional black adizero 5-Star and FREAK cleats.

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - The fifth-ranked Nebraska volleyball team fell 3-2 (22-25, 25-11, 26-24, 23-25, 9-15) to No. 9 Penn State at Rec Hall on Saturday night. 

The Huskers (15-3, 6-2 Big Ten) suffered their first loss to the Nittany Lions (15-3, 6-2 Big Ten) in eight matches dating back to 2014. Penn State won its 21st straight match at home dating back to its Sept. 22, 2017 sweep at the hands of the Huskers. 

Lexi Sun had 20 kills, her most in a Husker uniform, to go with nine digs. Mikaela Foecke added 17 kills and 18 digs. With her 17 kills, Foecke moved past Virginia Stahr to No. 8 on Nebraska's all-time career kills chart with 1,412.

Jazz Sweet had 10 kills, and Lauren Stivrins had 10 kills and five blocks while Callie Schwarzenbach had six kills and seven blocks. Nicklin Hames put up 49 assists with 18 digs for her fourth straight double-double. 

Kenzie Maloney had 23 digs to move to No. 9 on Nebraska's career digs chart, passing current director of operations Lindsay (Wischmeier) Peterson with 1,127. 

Nebraska had a .210 to .172 edge in hitting percentage. The Huskers also out-blocked Penn State 13-10, reaching double-digit blocks for the fifth straight match. 

Nia Reed led the Nittany Lions with 20 kills, though the Huskers held her to .171 hitting. Taylor Leath had 10 kills and hit .087. 

Set 1: A 6-1 Husker run put them up 8-5 early, but Penn State tied the set at 12-12 as both teams struggled to find any rhythm on the attack. Penn State used a kill and a block to go up 16-15, but an ace by Hames and a block by Sun and Schwarzenbach put the Big Red up 19-17. The Nittany Lions answered with the next two points to make it 19-19. The teams traded sideouts for six rallies before Penn State ended the set on a 4-0 run to win 25-22. 

Set 2: Nebraska scored first off a Sun kill and never trailed, taking a 15-7 lead after a 5-0 run keyed by two Sweet kills and an ace by Sun. After Penn State ended the run for one rally, the Huskers continued to build steam with a kill by Schwarzenbach, a block by Stivrins and Foecke, a kill by Sweet and a block and kill by Foecke to make it 20-8 via a 10-1 run. Foecke tacked on two more kills and an ace as the Huskers won 25-11, hitting .448 in the set and posting five blocks. 

Set 3: Penn State built a 9-6 lead after scoring on five of six rallies. The Huskers drew even at 12-12 after Sun recorded three kills and Schwarzenbach hammered down an overpass. The teams then played 16 straight rallies of sideout volleyball before the Huskers held serve on a Foecke kill to go ahead 21-20. Nebraska led 23-22, but a pair of errors gave Penn State set point first at 24-23. After a timeout, Sun kept the Huskers alive with her 13th kill, and Hames served an ace to give NU set point at 25-24. After a Penn State timeout, Sun tipped down her 14th kill to give the Huskers the set, 26-24. 

Set 4: After a pair of kills by Sweet to begin the set, Penn State reeled off a 7-0 run including a pair of aces by Kendall White. Foecke produced a kill and a block with Stivrins, and Stivrins then combined with Hames for a block to pull the Huskers within 9-7. The Huskers cut it to one on numerous occasions and finally tied the score at 13-13 on a block by Sweet and Schwarzenbach. Another block by Schwarzenbach made it 14-13 Huskers, and NU went ahead 19-16 after back-to-back kills by Sun. Penn State fought back to take a 22-21 lead after an ace serve by White trickled off the top of the net and dropped. But a service error tied the set at 22-22, and Foecke posted a kill for a 23-22 Husker lead. The Nittany Lions answered with a Reed kill and a block to grab set point at 24-23. A Husker hitting error handed Penn State the 25-23 win.

Set 5: Penn State ran out to a 5-2 lead, but kills by Foecke and Sun cut it to 5-4. The Nittany Lions then scored the next two to go back up by three, 7-4. After Sun pulled the Huskers within 8-6, Penn State scored four of the next five to take a 12-7 lead. The Nittany Lions finished off the match with a 15-9 win.

Evanston, Illinois – Sophomore kicker Drew Luckenbaugh made a 37-yard field goal in overtime, and Northwestern came from behind for a stunning 34-31 victory over Nebraska on Saturday at Ryan Field.

Nebraska (0-6, 0-4 Big Ten) had leads of 28-14 and 31-21 in the fourth quarter, but Northwestern (3-3, 3-1) rallied late in regulation to force overtime and win its first home game in four attempts this season.

The Huskers had possession first in overtime, but on fourth-and-1 from the Northwestern 16-yard line, a fumbled shotgun snap resulted in a scrambling Adrian Martinez throwing a pass in the end zone that Northwestern defensive back JR Pace caught for his second interception of the game.

Northwestern, which entered overtime with 29 rushing yards, kept the ball on the ground for three plays in setting up the field goal for Luckenbaugh, who had made a 31-yard attempt but missed from 42 yards in regulation.

Nebraska lost to Northwestern in overtime for the second consecutive season and has lost four straight overtime games, dating to a 2014 win at Iowa.

Martinez, a freshman quarterback, completed 25 of 35 passes for 251 yards and one touchdown and became just the second freshman quarterback in Nebraska history to reach 1,000 passing yards in a season, joining Taylor Martinez.

Senior running back Devine Ozigbo ran 22 times for 169 yards to surpass 100 rushing yards in a game for the second time this season, as Nebraska finished with 231 rushing yards.

Down 10 points, Northwestern drove to the Nebraska 13-yard line before settling on a 31-yard field goal by Luckenbaugh to pull the Wildcats within seven points.

Nebraska senior linebacker Luke Gifford fielded an onside kick at the Northwestern 47-yard line with 2:26 remaining. The Wildcats responded by using all three of their timeouts, as Nebraska ran the football three times and only took 15 seconds off the clock. But junior punter Isaac Armstrong pinned the Wildcats at their 1-yard line with 2:02 remaining.

Northwestern answered by covering all 99 yards, the key play a 32-yard completion from senior quarterback Clayton Thorson to senior wide receiver Nagel to the Nebraska 32-yard line. Thorson tied the game with 12 seconds to play with a 5-yard touchdown pass to freshman receiver JJ Jefferson, and Nebraska kneeled out the clock to force overtime.

Northwestern took the opening kickoff of the second half and drove to the Nebraska 41-yard line, but safety Antonio Reed intercepted Thorson on a deep pass, giving the Huskers possession at their 4-yard line. That was Reed’s second career interception.

Nebraska responded with its longest scoring drive of the season, covering 97 yards in 15 plays. Martinez sparked the series with a run of 12 yards on a third-and-8 draw play. On the next play, Martinez connected with senior receiver Stanley Morgan Jr. for a 26-yard gain over the middle, then hit sophomore receiver JD Spielman on a 13-yard swing pass, as the offense picked up the tempo. Spielman finished with eight receptions for 76 yards.

Ozigbo carried four times thereafter, including a 1-yard touchdown run that gave the Huskers a 20-14 lead with 7:07 remaining in the third quarter.

The Blackshirts responded with a quick three-and-out. Sophomore defensive end Ben Stille sacked Thorson and Gifford pressured Thorson into a third-down incompletion, forcing a Northwestern punt. Gifford finished with a team-high 3.5 tackles for loss.

Northwestern regained possession at its 20-yard line after a turnover, and the Wildcats drove to the Nebraska 24-yard line. But the Huskers forced a stop on third-and-long, and Luckenbaugh missed a 42-yard field attempt.

Nebraska responded with a 37-yard run by Ozigbo to end the third quarter with the Huskers leading, 20-14. Ozigbo began the fourth quarter with gains of 21 and 4 yards, and Washington carried for 11 yards before scoring a 3-yard touchdown run with 13:40 remaining. Martinez ran for a two-point conversion and 28-14 lead.

Northwestern answered quickly. On the third play of their ensuing series, the Wildcats scored when Thorson hit Flynn on a 61-yard pass to cut Nebraska’s lead to 28-21 with 12:31 to play.

The Wildcats regained possession, but senior safety Tre Neal intercepted Thorson at the 50 and returned the ball to the Northwestern 36. That led to a 34-yard field goal by freshman Garrett Pickering with 5:41 remaining for a 31-21 lead.

Nebraska opened the game with an impressive 75-yard touchdown drive that needed only four plays.

Ozigbo got the Huskers into Northwestern territory with a 33-yard run, and on the next play, Martinez hit Spielman on a crossing route, and Spielman scored on the 42-yard catch-and-run for a 7-0 lead.

The Blackshirts forced a Northwestern punt after the Wildcats gained one first down on their opening possession. Nebraska put together a 12-play drive that covered 52 yards but stalled at the Northwestern 42-yard line, and Pickering hit the right upright on a 45-yard field goal attempt.

Nebraska led 7-0 after the first quarter, its first lead after the opening period since last season’s game at Purdue, which was also the Huskers’ last victory.

Northwestern tied the game 7-7 with a nine-play drive that covered 80 yards. Thorson had two 17-yard completions on the series, to Flynn and Jefferson, and then completed a 21-yard touchdown pass to Nagel on third-and-8.

The Wildcats took the lead late in the second quarter when the pocket collapsed on Martinez, who fumbled as he succumbed to a sack. Sophomore defensive end Earnest Brown IV picked up the loose football and ran 10 yards for a touchdown and 14-7 lead.

Nebraska answered with an impressive touchdown drive that covered 83 yards in eight plays and covered 2:11. Martinez hit junior receiver Mike Williams on a 24-yard pass that pushed the Huskers into Northwestern territory.

Ozigbo then gained 18 yards on a catch-and-run before capping the drive with a 12-yard touchdown run up the middle with 42 seconds remaining in the second quarter. The extra point, though, was no good, and Northwestern held a 14-13 lead at halftime.

Nebraska fell to 8-5 all-time against Northwestern and dropped to 4-2 all-time in Evanston. The loss snapped the Huskers’ four-game win streak at Ryan Field.

Nebraska returns home Saturday to play Minnesota. Kickoff is 2:30 p.m. at Memorial Stadium.

UNK Becomes First Team to Have a Rushing TD Vs. Northwest Since 2016
 
Kearney, Neb. - Thirteenth-ranked Northwest Missouri State scored 21 first quarter points, made some defensive stops in the second half and recovered an onside kick to hold off Nebraska-Kearney, 27-13, Saturday afternoon in Maryville.

The Bearcats (6-1) are now 12-3 all-time against the Lopers (4-3) and push its overall record to 117-15 over the last decade.

UNK got off the mat after it found itself down 21-0 just 13 minutes into the game. Northwest's first three drives all resulted in touchdowns and covered 75, 75 and 79 yards. The last score was "trick play" as freshman receiver LaTroy Harper threw a 67-yard strike to junior back Brody McMahon.

However, the Lopers controlled the next two quarters and closed within 21-13 with 10:36 remaining. Junior quarterback Alex McGinnis (Crete) ran for a three-yard score, on third and goal, at the 4:31 mark of the first half and then added a five-yard TD run early in the fourth. Northwest hadn't allowed a rushing TD since a 2016 NCAA playoff semifinal win over Ferris (Mich.) State, a string of 19 games and 647 carries.

The Lopers could've had more points at this time of the game but failed on fourth and six from the Bearcat 43-yard line early in the second quarter. They then failed on fourth and five from the Northwest 15-yard line to start the second half and a McGinnis pass on fourth and nine fell incomplete on fourth and nine from the Bearcats 28-yard line. That also came in the third quarter. Overall, UNK ended up 2 for 5 on fourth down.

After McGinnis's second TD run, UNK tried an on-side kick. Northwest unfortunately recovered the loose ball at its own 48-yard line. Eight plays later sophomore Parker Sampson booted a 21-yard field goal to make it a two score game. Prior to this field goal, Northwest had amassed just 39 yards over seven drives. Those possessions ended with five punts, a turnover and a fourth down stop by the Lopers.

UNK tried to come back after the field goal but Northwest picked off McGinnis on the next two drives. The first led to another short field goal by Parker with the second coming in Bearcat territory.

The 'Cats out gained the Lopers 366-331 yards while UNK had the ball seven more minutes. Kearney managed 132 rushing and 199 passing yards with Northwest seeing Elkhorn native Braden Wright go 13 of 26 for 177 yards and one TD. The one-time Loper commit also rushed 11 times for 55 yards and a score.

McGinnis finished 11 of 30 for 199 yards and those two late INT's. He was UNK’s top rusher, carrying the ball 16 times for 44 yards and two TD's. Next, redshirt freshman receiver/back Montrez Jackson (Trenton, Fla.) had his best day in a Blue & Gold uniform. He had three catches for 117 yards and two rushes for nine more yards.

For the first time in ten games the McCook Community College volleyball team completed a match in fewer than four sets, downing Lamar Community College Saturday at home in three sets.

The Lady Indians won 25-12, 25-23, 25-23.

“I joked with the girls afterward that since we didn’t get our usual workload in today we should go on a seven-mile run,” MCC Coach Hayley Kobza said. “We really did need to put this match away early and we did.”

With the win MCC stays perfect at the Peter and Dolores Graff Events Center, now 8-0. Saturday’s win also evens the slate against the same thee Southern Colorado teams the Lady Indians lost to in consecutive nights two weeks ago.

“Losing straight nights two weeks ago to Trinidad, Otero and Lamar was a tough road trip for us and really tested us mentally,” Kobza said. “We were struggling and questioning each other, but this nice stretch of home has helped us figure out how to play a better team game,” Kobza said.

Playing its third game in three days fourth in five days the Lady Indians came out with low energy to start the first set yet played well enough to win.

Freshman Faith Simpson (Wauneta-Palisade) led MCC with 14 kills. Sophomore Hannah Emerson (Greeley, Colo.) had six kills.

Freshman Mallory Brown (Colorado Springs) and sophomore Ryan Maddera (Greeley, Colo.) each had four kills. Sophomore Ashley Carson (Ord) had three service aces.

“Now we finally have a couple days in practice to work on some things, and tweak our team a little because of injuries,” Kobza.

Sophomore Haley Jacobsen (Littleton, Colo.) rolled an ankle during warmups Friday and sustained a high ankle sprain. Freshman Allie Gammel (Arvada, Colo.) saw her most extensive stretch of playing time during this homestand and Mallory Brown came in Saturday and played the right side, without much work there.

Lamar Community College falls to 17-12.

MCC improves to 18-10 and 3-5 in Region IX with two key home games left on the slate.

“Having all this support at home has been amazing. People are coming out to see MCC volleyball and not just coming to see a player or two they know so,” Kobza said. “So we owe it to our fans to play a team game and we’re looking forward to a couple more great crowds for a couple key Region IX opponents to end the season.”

MCC travels to North Platte Wednesday for a 7 p.m. game then finishes the season at home Oct. 19 against Western Nebraska and Oct. 23 against Northeastern Junior College.
