“Coming again after the primary loss and successful the subsequent 4 was like nothing had occurred,” mentioned NU junior captain Cassidy Ray. “We went again to doing what we used to do and it was very nice to lastly have the ability to take the trophy and say, ‘It is as much as us.'”

NU completed fourth, third, third, second and second in these occasions. Victories did not come, however Klempa, in his second yr on the helm, felt the Huskers have been about to achieve their peak.
