The blackout at Memorial Stadium had all the elements created to make it appear to be a special night for Husker football. "There's no reason to freak out. I don't know that yet in a practice or a game that we've incompleted that ball, let alone throw a pick six on it off of a top of a head, it's a pretty ridiculous play really". "We have to finish drives with points. That's what we needed". A swing pass on third-and-2 at the Wisconsin 17 caromed off Ozigbo and found linebacker Chris Orr, who returned it 78 yards for a quick touchdown.

Wisconsin ran on eight of 10 plays in a 93-yard drive for the go-ahead touchdown with Quintez Cephus scoring on a five-yard pass. It was his last. They return to Madison for two straight home games, the first on Saturday, October 14th, against the Purdue Boilermakers (3-2, 1-1 conference).

After a Nebraska punt, UW took the ball 80 yards in 10 plays during a drive that took 5:45 off the clock. The Cornhuskers, in a state of disarray after a loss to Northern Illinois, had confidence and momentum after opening the Big Ten with wins over Rutgers and Illinois.

Deiter was asked if he was calling the plays down the stretch. Just using him a lot, I feel comfortable with him. The Huskers' running game is a shell of what it once was, and the defense continues to be exposed on a regular basis. It is a ton of fun. Nebraska appeared to take momentum just before halftime with Lee's 80-yard touchdown pass to Stanley Morgan Jr. with 1:20 remaining to make it a 10-7 game.

Nadal thrashes Kyrgios to win China Open title
Nadal is expected to target Dimitrov's single-handed backhand off his serve and does so successfully at 30-0 and 40-0. Jared Donaldson will be the first opponent for the 31-year-old after he beat Pablo Cuevas of Uruguay 6-7, 6-4, 6-4.

The game figured to be hard for the Badgers because this time Nebraska was ready for Wisconsin.

Wisconsin ran for 353 yards, led by Jonathan Taylor's 249, in dominating the second half and emerging with an important 38-17 victory, putting the Badgers in the driver's seat in the division.

No. 9 Wisconsin (5-0, 2-0 Big Ten) ended Nebraska's 20-game winning streak in home night games at Memorial Stadium in the process while the Huskers (3-3, 2-1) couldn't capitalize on career highs from running back Devine Ozigbo (112 yards on 23 attempts) and wideout JD Spielman (six catches for 79 yards).

Wide receiver George Rushing also remains out with a left leg injury he suffered in fall camp, and left tackle Michael Deiter still has an ankle issue that he said he'll have to manage the rest of the season.

The difference on Saturday was that while the bulk of his production the past two weeks came in the fourth quarter to close out games, Ozigbo was the clear feature back all night vs. the Badgers.

Wisconsin finished with 466 total yards, while Nebraska finished with 381. "That's what we're shooting for and that's what we were able to do the second half". The defense made plays, for one half of football. Hornibrook completed 9-of-17 passes for 113 yards with one touchdown and one interception. He became only the second UW true freshman with multiple 200-yard games, joining Ron Dayne in that category.

"You learn that despite what circumstances might come up", he said, "we are going to keep playing. That is the takeaway for me right now".

Trump administration 'open' to debate on banning bump stocks
The President had said in a tweet that "The Mayor of San Juan, who was very complimentary only a few days ago, has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump", a week before his visit - and indeed, that seems to be exactly the case.
