LINCOLN, Neb. (KTIV) -

There have been plenty of ups and downs during the Bo Pelini era at Nebraska.
But, in the second half, the program hit a new all time low in their 41-21 loss to the Bruins.

The offense and defense were no where to be found.

After giving up 206 total yards to UCLA in the first half, the Huskers surrendered 236 and 28 points in the third quarter alone, the most point given up in a quarter in the history of Memorial Stadium.

From the second quarter on, the Bruins rattled off 38 unanswered points, while NU failed to find paydirt.

In the words of Head Coach Bo Pelini...it was "horrendous".

"That's what you call a team loss right there," Head Coach Bo Pelini said.  "We got beat in every phase of the game in the second half.  I think we showed a little bit of what we're capable of in the first half of as a football team in the first half but in the second half we got away from fundamentals."

"We picked up the tempo, we made blocks, we caught the ball, we made plays, threw it accurately, things like that," Bruins Head Coach Jim Mora said.  "We didn't call any different plays. We didn't come in at half-time and put in any new plays or put in a new offense.  It was more of a mindset."

Nebraska plays South Dakota State next Saturday.  The Jacks are ranked 6th in the FCS Poll.  Nebraska fell out of the Top 25 poll following the loss to UCLA.
