Nebraska football's tough start to the 2018 season continues as the Huskers fall to Purdue to start 0-4 for the first time since 1945. 

There were a couple of bright spots in Nebraska's loss, like senior running back Devine Ozigbo who had 17 carries for 170 yards and two touchdowns on the game. 

Nebraska struggled with penalties yet again this week with 11. 

The Huskers' true freshman quarterback showed flashes of greatness as he completed 25 of his 42 passes for 323 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. 

JD Spielman was another bright spot as he hauled in 10 catches for 135 yards and two touchdowns in the matchup with Purdue.

Up next, the Huskers will face off against Wisconsin on the road Saturday, Oct. 6 at 6:30 p.m.
