It's been quite the rollercoaster of emotions for the first half of Nebraska's home opener against Arkansas State. It all started with a newly revamped version of the traditional Tunnel Walk.

Arkansas State returned a punt to the house, but J.D. Spielman had an answer of his own.

Then, it happened. What Nebraska fans have been waiting for all offseason. Tanner Lee's first deep-ball touchdown to Stanley Morgan Jr.

Lee finished the half with 137 yards on 10 of 14 completions and a touchdown. 

While Tre Bryant got the majority of the first half carries, Mikale Wilbon rumbled past the goal line for six in the second quarter. 


Bryant finished the first half with 13 carries for 78 yards, while Wilbon finished with two carries for 15 yards and a touchdown. 

The Huskers lead Arkansas State 27-26 at the half.
