The coaches for the first time this year called a game to his strengths. and he responded with a great performance. Hopefully Riley and Co. learned what Nebraska football is suppose to look like.

He played team football and didn't try to be the star.

He made a lot better decisions. Took sacks. A punt is a lot better than a turnover

Only threw 19 times -- it should always be like that!

For one of the few times in his career the play calling played to his strengths.....if they play call games like that then he could have an outstanding senior season and play a notch ahead of this heralded freshman O'Brien....... Kuddos to Langsdorff and Riley for what they did.

He played within his ability and strengths. Should have done this all year.

Hard to pick this one over Michigan State, but when you game plan to his strengths and the O-line dominates I think you'll get a W every time. 10 of his 12 completions went for 1st downs.

Being at the game. I observed his confident demeanor running the offense. His throws were timely and accurate.

Very nice performance. The coaches really adapted to showcase Tommy's strengths. Great job by the coaches too. Move forward. Go Big Red.

He was asked to play within his strengths, and he responded with accuracy and authority. It was fun watching him do it! If that's the plan for 2016, it could be a good year.

Played within himself; not attempting to extend plays beyond what he should have (take a short loss vs. a big loss or turnover). Better decision making. When he did run, it was generally the best choice.

Tommy didnt throw the ball 48 times and the offense didnt rely on his decision making....I hope this is the offense going forward...POWER FOOTBALL=NEBRASKA FOOTBALL

Threw it out of bounds when he was pressured and limited passing relying mostly on the run.

OU is susceptible to the long passing game. NU pulls out some stops on offense. D keeps it close. OU by 3.

Spencer is a guy who’s easily rattled (get it?) and figures to throw a few picks if pressured. I still think we lose but Huskers can move the ball through the air and force a few TOs to keep this game within 14. Small chance they even pull out the W

I watched the Tulane game and I think Buffalo is a good team that the D shutdown. Plus I went to school in the 90’s and want us so badly to step up on National tv. We are due!! Skers

Sooner's lose one game mid-season. Why not this one. Hopefully no one showed the Sooner team what Frost and company did to them in '96 and '97. We should play well for 3 quarters then their top guys may take over.

I can’t believe Nebraska fans have fallen so far that they discuss if they can’t beat the spread and not if they can beat OU.

they have talent everywhere. We have a tiny bit of talent. It's a talent landslide.

No way! IL lost big to an unrated Virginia team. Sooners will do whatever they want to do regarding score. Tired of us ‘rebuilding’ when we can’t beat teams that out recruit us every year. Don’t those teams have to rebuild? Simply put we are either terrible recruiters or terrible developers.

Big REd is playing well below the Sooner's level. I just hope they can keep it at the 21 points and not get buried in a ten td avalanche.

They are still playing pretty bad. Offensive line is still not blowing anyone off the ball. Defense is still not getting a pass rush. Secondary is not as good as advertised. Hopefully there will be improvement.

We are not there yet. We put too much pressure on an improving defense. If NU could some how score 40 they might have a chance at the end of the game but....I'll call it 48-27 OU.

Are you concerned about the investigation into the Husker's use of analysts and off-campus workouts?

Lots of teams are doing the exact same thing. Make everyone else accountable before just punishing the Huskers.

It's just a distraction, but it is the last thing we need right now. The timing of this news is extremely suspicious. Focus on taking care of business on the field and this will be ancient history in a month .

Frost is doing everything he can to try to get this program going again. That even means blatantly cheating and trying to cover up his cheating. This isn’t an oopsie, it’s desperation. Same with trying to run away from the OU game. He knows he’s in trouble and he just cost himself his buyout.
