That's something Big Red fans have become all too familiar with.

The 6-foot, 230-pound junior finished with 112 yards on 23 carries as he stared in place of Mikale Wilbon, who was out with an injury. In 2014 Gordon ran for a then-NCAA record 408 yards against the Huskers. He has gained 100-plus yards over the past three games.

Missouri has been an underdog by 20 points or more nine times since the 2000 game at Nebraska, according to oddsshark.com. His night was highlighted by a 75-yard touchdown run.

"I think I definitely feel comfortable with him, especially third down", Lee said. With the continued struggles of the offense, a change at quarterback would seem to be the most logical move if redshirt freshman Patrick O'Brien is ready to get a shot.

Nebraska tied the game at 17 when safety Aaron Williams intercepted an ill-advised throw from Hornibrook and returned it 14 yards for a touchdown early in the third quarter.

Stat of the game: 7.2 - The average yards per carry for Wisconsin as it bullied Nebraska's defensive line with a variety of run plays. Last week Wisconsin defeated Northwestern 33-24, using a strong second half and two Jonathan Taylor touchdowns to overcome a sluggish start that saw them down 10-7 at halftime. We had an interception for a touchdown for them after a drive that was pretty well done.

After four promising offensive plays netted 58 yards to begin the game, the start took a familiarly ominous turn for Nebraska when quarterback Tanner Lee threw his fourth pick-six of the season.

The Huskers were hurt by a pick-six by Wisconsin's Chris Orr on the opening drive when they were in scoring position. Blough and Elijah Sindelar have combined for 13 touchdown passes and six interceptions this season.

Jensen said the divers on Friday found the clothes and body parts in bags weighed down with metal pieces. He has said that the journalist died in an accident when she hit her head on a hatch in the submarine.

Nebraska ended up moving the ball into Wisconsin territory eight times on the night yet managed just 17 points, including a missed field goal and not including a lost fumble near midfield late in the game.

Particularly after the Cornhuskers appeared to swing momentum their way early in the second half with a defensive touchdown that unleashed a deafening roar from the sellout crowd of almost 90,000.

"I think that was our goal the whole time, just to play our brand of football", tight end Troy Fumagalli said.

"But you know, you're always looking to make a play. It was there and it was great execution".

Around the Big Ten, few teams have been as disappointing this season as the Nebraska Cornhuskers.

The Huskers had just 68 yards of offense in the second half. The 21-point loss was their most lopsided since Iowa beat them by the same score in 2013 and only increases the pressure on Riley.

Wisconsin will host Purdue this Saturday (2:30 p.m.) and will shoot for its 12th straight win in the series.

This speaks volumes about determining what exactly has been the best moment of the first half for a program like Nebraska, but the bar was lowered so low that coming up with back-to-back wins against Rutgers and IL really has been the best moment of the season for the Cornhuskers midway through the year.
