It was just one half, but Miami quarterback Brad Kaaya is having himself a nice ballgame down in Miami. Kaaya has already thrown for over 220 yards and a pair of touchdowns for the Hurricanes, who lead Nebraska 20-3 at the halftime break.
Kaaya has found something working with wide receiver Rashawn Scott against the Huskers. Scott is Miami’s leading receiver with 114 yards, but the touchdowns have been thrown to Tyre Brady and Christopher Herndon IV. Kaaya has completed a pass to seven different receivers, keeping Nebraska on their toes going to the break.
Nebraska’s quarterback, Tommy Armstrong, has struggled to get going, completing seven of his 13 passes for 65 yards at halftime. The Huskers running game has also not done a whole lot just yet, with Terrell Newby rushing for 41 yards at halftime. Penalties have also haunted Nebraska, with seven first-half penalties for 65 yards.
Nebraska is going to need a big second half. Otherwise the Huskers will be taking a 1-2 record back to Lincoln with them. Al Golden, on the other hand, will suddenly feel a little better about his job security. Maybe.
