Westerkamps Fumble a Game Changer?


The Huskers meet up with Michigan State today in a game that could determine who would make it to the Big Ten Championship in December. A game that is already difficult for the Huskers is made even more tedious when Huskers make mistakes during the game. 

An example of these mistakes include the fumble my Westerkamp. This fumble came right after Michigan State kicked the ball back to Nebraska. Westerkamp caught the ball, was knocked over, dropped the ball, and it was quickly recovered by the Michigan State special teams.

The fumble resulted in Michigan State getting their first touchdown of the game and taking the lead at 10-0.

This is not something that the Huskers can deal with during this game. They are already at a disadvantage for this game and making mistakes like this can easily put them behind and lose the game. If the Huskers would like to keep their chances alive to go to the Big Ten Championship, and perhaps win it against a team like Ohio State, they will need to learn how to avoid easy mistakes like this.
