Ameer to the rescue: Ameer Adbullah turned a short pass from Tommy Armstrong Jr. into a 58-yard touchdown with 20 seconds left to send No. 19 Nebraska to a 31-24 win over McNeese State.
   The Huskers were facing a 3rd-and-6 with the game tied. Armstrong hit Abdullah in the flat short of the first-down marker and gave the senior All-America candidate a chance to make a play. And what a play he made.

Husker Mike

If Armstrong doesn’t start to show major improve­ment with his passing soon, it may be time to give Ryker Fyfe some meaningful snaps.”
