Husker Fans React to Win

By  | 

They were serving up more than just coffee and beef and noodles at Stauffers Cafe in Lincoln Thursday.
They were also serving up a big ol' helping of Husker pride.

"That's all people have been talking about all day long, everyone that comes in the door, I say go Huskers, we're proud of you, yes, it's been a very exciting day," said Mary Wert.

Husker Nation is beaming after the Alamo Bowl win.

"I thought it went real well, they came through as they've been doing recently, and we're very pleased," said Larry Sechor of Lincoln.

And the last play of the game seems to be the talk of the town.

"It was good, we had fun watching it, it was a lot of fun, and that last quarter was very interesting, and that last play, we just kept hoping someone would stop the guy," said Nancy Faragan of Santa Barbara, California.

That soon to be infamous play had people putting down their hamburgers at the Denton Daily Double.

"Oh yeah, they're talking about it, they couldn't believe no one knew the game wasn't over," said Mel Gagner of Denton.

"I'd never seen anything like it, I didn't know they could do that," said Thomas Flackman of Lincoln.

But the win in the end put a smile, and even a song in the hearts of Husker fans.

"Good ol' Nebraska U- we finally did it, the order is getting restored," said Dave Backes of Denton.
