If that was The Game of the Century, then I want my 100 years back.

Classics don't have four interceptions, four missed field goals, 13 penalties, one fumble, one botched punt return and zero touchdowns. A punter shouldn't be the best player on the field in a classic.

Bottom line: Only a classic is worthy of a Jan. 9 rematch in New Orleans. And this wasn't one of them.

It was an SEC/B1G classic: no offense and a lot of kicking. Personally I've been kicking myself for watching the 'game of the century.'

Starting quarterback Dan Persa was on the sideline in the second half because of a bum shoulder, and Northwestern's maligned defense was doing all it could to hold off Nebraska.

Surely, most fans wearing scarlet and cream at Memorial Stadium were thinking it was just a matter of time before the Cornhuskers (No. 10 BCS, No. 9 AP) took control of this game. The Wildcats wouldn't let it happen, hanging on to upset Nebraska 28-25 for their first win over a top-10 opponent in two years. "We got beat. It's that plain and simple," Nebraska coach Bo Pelini said.

"They outplayed us, they outcoached us. What are you going to say? They won the football game. They deserve it. I give Northwestern a lot of credit. We didn't respond."

Northwestern. Outplayed Nebraska. Let's savor that awhile.

"Having one year under our belt as a coaching staff, having some veterans coming back into our program who know what to expect … it makes you feel a lot more comfortable as a coach.
