WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind.--It took over a month, but Nebraska finally took the show on the road and left Purdue Boilermaker fans stunned on the heels of a 44-7 win without quarterback Taylor Martinez.
With the victory, the Huskers not only improved to 5-1 and 2-0 in conference, but also now lay claim to the Big Ten's top offense and defense.
Even though Tommy Armstrong, Jr., struggled under center, Ron Kellogg III and a punishing ground game led by Ameer Abdullah more than made up for it.
While the Huskers are making strides, Head Coach Bo Pelini says the team still has a ways to go.
"I see our team progressing," Pelini said. "But like I just told the team, we're not where we need to be. We're nowhere near it."
The Huskers have a bye this Saturday and get a chance to progress on Oct. 26 when they travel to Minnesota to take on the Gophers.
