How to Watch Nebraska vs. Oregon Online

Nebraska (1-1) trailed 42-14 at halftime but scored on its first two possessions of the second half to stay in the game.

OR hosts Nebraska on Saturday at Autzen Stadium in a matchup of two 1-0 teams looking for a quality win before conference play kicks off.

But on the first play from scrimmage, OR cornerback Uguchukwu Amadi intercepted Nebraska junior quarterback Tanner Lee, whose arm was hit as he threw. These two Power 5 players met in Lincoln past year with the Cornhuskers coming out on top.

This game was also a tail of two quarterbacks. The Ducks will take what's given, but are also committed to dictating. The Ducks rushed for 348 yards and nine touchdowns, with senior Royce Freeman accounting for four of those scores. Sophomore Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert had himself a phenomenal game. Freeman had a 28-yard run in the drive.

Tanner Lee looked decent in his first Nebraska start, throwing two TDs.

The Blackshirts forced a stop on Oregon's third series, and Lee settled the Huskers offense by leading a long scoring drive.

Tanner Lee threw his fourth interception on the ensuing drive, and OR ran out the clock to move to 2-0 on the season. That ended up sparking a 10-play, 95-yard drive that ended with a 23-yard touchdown pass from Lee to De'Mornay Pierson-El.

The Ducks, under first-year coach Willie Taggert, who replaced fired Mark Helfrich posted one of the biggest wins in the school's history in his debut, a 77-21 rout over Southern Utah. The defense again came through with a three-and-out to put the ball in the hands of the Husker offense. Kani Benoit added three scores on 107 yards rushing.

In those games, which Taggart swept, the Bulls ran the ball 67 percent of the time. Charles Nelson had 117 yards receiving.

When the first half finally came to an end, OR had already racked up 408 yards of offense, 313 through the air, while averaging 9.1 yards per play, covering 6-of-8 third downs, and going a ideal 5-for-5 in the red zone.

Night and day. That's the best description of the Huskers' first-half performance compared to their second.

On the second play of the half, Lee hit Pierson-El for a 34-yard pass to get the Huskers into OR territory. Pierson essentially has to drape himself all over that defensive to even give himself a chance at the catch, and OR was actually flagged for defensive pass interference on the play.

Nebraska's next drive began at the Huskers' 47-yard line. Brooks-James had three rushing touchdowns against the Husker defense past year. Much of the game was dominated by Oregon.

The Blackshirts then stepped up once again when safety Aaron Williams picked off a tipped Herbert pass and returned it to the OR 44, but the Lee and Co. couldn't capitalize and were forced to punt.

OR responded by driving to the Nebraska 32, but the Ducks stalled and couldn't convert on fourth-and-3.

Nebraska force a punt on the fifth scoreless series before the fumble on the sixth series that set up the only touchdown of the fourth quarter.

" OR has won 20 straight home nonconference games". Nebraska now leads the all-time series against OR, 6-2.

Nebraska next plays Saturday against Northern Illinois (1-1).
