Nebraska loses 21-17 at home to Northern Illinois

Pregame Northern Illinois no stranger to Power Five road environment

The Huskers now drop to 1-2 on the year, and enter conference play below.500 for the first time in the Mike Riley era.

Lee threw a second interception returned for a touchdown later on in the quarter. A home game against the Mid-American Conference's Northern Illinois Huskies was supposed to be the flawless chance for a rebound, but the Huskies did not show up to be pushed around by a Big Ten team looking to regroup before heading into conference play.

Lee finished the game 25-for-47 for 299 yards and three interceptions. Northern Illinois went up 21-17 thanks to a 6-play, 75-yard drive that culminated in a two-yard touchdown run by Jordan Huff with less than nine minutes left.

The Huskers spent most of the game behind the eight ball, because quarterback Tanner Lee got pick-sixed twice in the first quarter by NIU defenders.

Brown's 36-yard field goal trimmed the deficit to 14-10 with 15 seconds remaining in the third.

Pierson-El had seven catches for 83 yards.

The Cornhuskers struggled offensively in the first half.

Running back Mikale Wilbon, starting in place of the injured Tre Bryant, rushed for 90 yards on 24 carries for the Cornhuskers (1-2). The Huskies were able to generate a pass rush from every angle. He's also completed less than 55 percent of his passes. William Lee tipped the kick which landed in the end zone, keeping the score 14-0.

Northern Illinois played mistake-free until a glaring blunder on special teams.

Overall, the Huskies held Nebraska to 384 total yards and an average of 4.63 yards per play. The veteran now has more interceptions than touchdowns between the four he threw in Autzen Stadium against OR and the three he tossed this week against Northern Illinois. They came to DeKalb as a 10.5-point favorite, but made some costly mistakes throughout the game that cost them victory. In addition to being without their starting quarterback this weekend, Northern Illinois lost leading receiver Chad Beebe - son of former National Football League player Don Beebe and a fifth-year senior who missed all of last season with multiple leg injuries - for 3-4 weeks with a concussion he suffered on a helmet-to-helmet hit versus Eastern Illinois.
