Fumbling Huskers refuse to win

8-0. No, that was not the final score. It was the turnover ratio in the Nebraska Iowa State football game Saturday.

The final score was 9-7 in favor of the Iowa State Cyclones.

The Huskers put the ball on the ground a total of seven times and recovered by Iowa State five times.

Nebraska also fumbled four times inside the five-yard line and lost them all.

Nebraska finished the game with 362 yards of offense but just seven points on the scoreboard. Eight turnovers will do that.
