Nebraska 27, Pur­due 14

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - SPORTS -

Tommy Arm­strong Jr. ac­counted for 303 yards of of­fense and two touch­downs, and Nebraska came back from a four-point half­time deficit to beat Pur­due.

The Corn­huskers (70, 4-0 Big Ten) prob­a­bly didn’t con­vince the skep­tics who say they aren’t wor­thy of a Top 10 rank­ing, but they’ll head to No. 10 Wis­con­sin next week with their best record since 2001.

Arm­strong was 17 for 31 for 252 yards and ran 10 times for 51 yards.

Pur­due (3-4, 1-3) man­aged only 94 yards in the sec­ond half in in­terim coach Gerad Parker’s first game since tak­ing over for the fired Dar­rell Hazell.
