Purdue's first play a disaster, Nebraska scores on the next

Nebraska could not have asked for a better start Saturday. For Purdue, it could not have gone much worse.

The Boilermakers tried some trickiness on their first offensive play of the game. Quarterback David Blough threw a backward pass to running back Markell Jones. He looked up to pass, but it wasn't there, so he started to run.

But the Huskers had that covered too, and Jones tried to get a throw off. He only found NU safety Kieron Williams, who picked it off for the interception.

On Nebraska's first snap, Tommy Armstrong kept it 22 yards for the touchdown, giving the Huskers a 7-0 lead 16 seconds into the game.
