USC's movement scares Nebraska defense - LA Daily News
Did Nebraska's defense get psyched out by USC to create those gaping holes...?...

...Nebraska chose to keep its defensive players in place against USC...perhaps confident it could physically match up with the Trojans.

It turned out to be a momentous decision.

USC's offense also put enough players in motion that the Huskers might have been scared to stunt their defense, because it might create big holes.

"If you move guys around, it might give (Nebraska) a reason to keep people in place because they don't want to get caught out of position,"...Pat Ruel said...
