LINCOLN — Nebraska defensive coordinator John Papuchis said the Huskers’ inability to stop the run on first down after halftime made the difference in the 41-21 loss to UCLA on Saturday.

NU held the Bruins to 35 yards on 10 first-down carries in the first half. But UCLA’s first snap in the third quarter was a 38-yard draw play for running back Jordon James. The Bruins averaged 5.4 yards per carry on their next seven first-down rush attempts.
