With Saturday’s second half collapse at Colorado, Nebraska has lost after leading in the second half in five of 14 games under coach Scott Frost. NU blew a 17-0 halftime lead in losing to the Buffs 34-31 in overtime.
Husker defensive lineman Darrion Daniels said yesterday the defense’s missed tackles in the second half of that game were due to poor execution. “We did some corrections today,” Daniels said. “We knew where we messed up. So, that’s the positive out of it.”
