Nevada vs. Nebraska post game report card

The final grades are in for Saturday's Nevada vs. Nebraska game. Obviously running back Marlon Lucky earned the highest grade for his performance on Saturday.

Here's the complete grade out NU's 52-10 victory over Nevada. The Huskers are now 1-0 heading into next Saturday's showdown at 0-1 Wake Forest.

Quarterback B-

It wasn't exactly the kind of day senior Sam Keller wanted to have, but the bottom line is he led Nebraska's offense to over 600 yards on Saturday. Keller finished 14-of-25 for 193 yards and one touchdown. His lone mistake of the day came when he threw a first half interception that went for a touchdown. There were times on Saturday where Keller tried to force balls, but as the game went he settled down and his poise improved.

Running Back A+

Junior running back Marlon Lucky answered a lot of questions today. Lucky had 33 touches for 268 yards and four touchdowns. Lucky showed great versatility on Saturday as both a receiver and back. You also have to be impressed with what freshman Quentin Castille did on Saturday. Castille finished with 78 yards on 18 carries for two touchdowns. The future is very bright for Castille, I see him having a nice role in this offense and really complimenting Lucky.
