Best Nebraska football performers on offense against Louisiana Tech
The stat of the day for the Nebraska football defense has to be a continued clamping down on the run game. The Blackshirts allowed less than 60 yards on the ground for the 4th straight game as LaTech. There’s a number of guys that stood out from the pack in that performance.
The young defensive back is making a believer of Nebraska football fans. His performance against LaTech was actually his second, where he was one of the best defenders on the team.
Wright scored a total of 79.9 grade, 79.7 when it came to tackling, and 79.2 for pass coverage. He notched five tackles but also had 2 quarterback hurries and 3 “stops,” which PFF judges were plays that constituted a failure for the offense. Perhaps most importantly, the Bulldogs only targeted his zone once all game. That’s a season-low.
Like Wright, Gunnerson is getting better as the season goes on. He started a right end for the Nebraska football team and got 32 total snaps and two tackles.
Clearly his best performances don’t necessarily fit in the box score as he graded out with a 77.8 overall grade, 76.5 for tackling and 71.5 pass rush grade. That pass rush score was the best on the Blackshirts.
Reimer makes the list despite only playing eight snaps both because he played well while he was in, and to underline that the Nebraska football team is in trouble if he doesn’t play against Michigan.
Reimer’s overall 70.8 score was his best of the season. He had one tackle and one assist and had his best coverage rating of the season. Granted, that might have been because he didn’t play much, but he still makes the grade for GOATs of the day.
