LINCOLN — While the thrill of his first collegiate touchdown was dampened by Nebraska’s 28-24 loss to Minnesota, sophomore safety Nate Gerry continued to display his playmaking abilities for the Cornhuskers on Saturday.

With Minnesota (8-3, 5-2 Big Ten) looking to cut its deficit to 14-10 with a 30-yard field-goal attempt by Ryan Santoso, Gerry produced what could’ve been the difference-maker for No. 21 Nebraska (8-3, 4-3). After teammate Randy Gregory blocked the field-goal try, Gerry scooped up the loose ball and returned it 85 yards for a TD, putting the Huskers ahead 21-7 with 5:18 to play in the second quarter.
