Another disastrous first half for Nebraska. It trails Northern Illinois 14-0 in Lincoln. QB Tanner Lee has held the ball too long and made poor decisions, two of which went for NIU scores. So Mike Riley is in a tight spot. Does he consider backup Patrick O'Brien or even true freshman Tristan Gebbia?

So you thought the first half went badly last week for Nebraska? Well, it did. But the Huskers trail 14-0 to Northern Illinois at home after one quarter -- on a pair of pick-sixes. NIU has gained 26 yards and possessed the ball for 3 minutes, 8 seconds. Penalties are making it worse for Nebraska.
