I’ll be the first to say that in college football, there’s no such thing as a moral victory.

Until there is.

What we witnessed Saturday night from Camp Randall Stadium in Madison, Wisconsin was nothing short of a moral victory. The offense busted its ass all game, and while there were hiccups, penalties, and errors, Big Red put up 518 yards of offense against the number-16 Badgers. And one Husker put his name in two record books.

Sophomore JD Spielman topped his own record for receiving yards in a single game, finishing with 209 yards on nine catches. The yardage was also the most that Wisconsin had ever allowed an opposing receiver to achieve on their home field.

So what does this mean for the Huskers? The defense still needs to do a better job of getting off the field and the team as a whole needs to start making better decisions that take away some of the penalties (10 for 100 yards…IN YOUR FACE, AKRON)!

So here we are, 0-5, and I have never felt better about this team as I do right now. Three losses in one week. But the team is stronger for it.
