Jim Donnan What a tremendous game. Nebraska did a great job of hanging in there until Cortney Grixby's punt return turned the momentum in its favor. The Cornhuskers made a nice adjustment to turn to Cory Ross and the running game, and QB Zac Taylor had a gutty performance. Michigan was up 11 points with just under nine minutes left, but couldn't finish. Fourth-quarter turnovers by Chad Henne and Jason Avant were key. -- Jim Donnan
