Worst Nebraska football performers on defense against Louisiana Tech
While the Nebraska football team once again looked solid on defense, they didn’t record a sack and at times, had some issues tackling. There were a few players that had especially bad games Saturday. Added note here is there’s a pattern in this trio that is a bit concerning.
When the Texas A&M transfer came to Lincoln, there were high hopes that he’d be able to give the Huskers a solid pass-rushing specialist. He certainly didn’t that, or much else on Saturday. His 41.9 overall grade was the worst of the team and he scored just a 37.2 grade against the run.
Jeudy’s highest grade of the season is just 58, despite getting a decent amount of playing time, even if he’s not starting. He needs to start doing better.
It was probably time for Mikai Gbayor to have a bad game, considering he came out of nowhere to post a pretty solid season so far. Over 27 snaps he garnered a 48.6 overall grade and was especially bad in tackling with a 20.1 grade.
Gbayor didn’t record a tackle, but he did have a missed tackle. Here’s hoping it’s not a situation where offenses are figuring out how to approach him.
Borders, a transfer from Florida scored a 56.6 overall, which marks the third time in four games that he’s garnered a “bad” grade. If there is one area where he did alright it was tackling as he graded out at 75 there.
It’s not great that two of the worst performers for the Nebraska football team are transfer players. Coaches hope the portal can offer help right away. Like Jeudy, Saturday afternoon is far from the only time Borders has struggled this season.
