Allen makes Husker debut

The fondness with which Nebraska redshirt freshman Austin Allen looks back at his first appearance for the Huskers may be tainted some by the unfortunate outcome, but the former Aurora Husky made his mark nonetheless.
Allen took the field for the first time as a Husker Saturday in Nebraska’s 33-28 loss to Colorado doing everything he could to contribute.
Back in the locker room, before all the tunnel walk noise and the anticipation of game one, it hit Allen like a ton of bricks how different this scenario was compared to being a redshirt player last year.
“Getting a chance to run out of that tunnel as a player, knowing you’re going to play and not just sit on the bench as a redshirt is a completely different feeling,” he said. “It really means something now.”
