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.”

Former Husky makes Husker debut

Nebraska redshirt freshman Austin Allen got his first taste of college football Saturday as he earned his first snaps for the Huskers at tight end as well as special teams. Nebraska led 28-27 late in the fourth quarter when Colorado scored the eventual game-winning touchdown with just over a minute to play. Nebraska had a drive to answer and even took two shots at the end zone from the Colorado 20, but it was not meant to be. 

As for Allen, the Aurora product lined up on both the kickoff return and extra point/field goal formation on special teams. At the 13:02 mark of the second quarter, Allen entered the game for the first time on offense at the tight end spot, and played every snap of Nebraska's second touchdown drive to tie the game at 14. He did not record a pass reception in the loss. 

Nebraska (0-1) will be at home again next Saturday, Sept. 15 taking on Troy with kickoff set for 11 a.m.
