MORNING BRIEFING: Cornhuskers stage comeback

Nebraska, a national power for more than a decade, is making a spectacular comeback after enduring a 5-10-4 season in 2007 and opening the 2008 campaign with four losses.

The Cornhuskers are undefeated in their last seven games after opening the Big 12 play last weekend with a 2-1 win over Kansas and 3-2 win over Missouri -- both overtime victories achieved after they rallied to equalize late in regulation.

Freshman Molly Thomas scored in the 106th minute to propel Nebraska to an upset of ranked Kansas after Shay Powell had equalized in th 70th minute.

Canadian Sari Raber scored the game-winning goal against Missouri after a great setup by Powell. Nebraska extended the game with a goal in the 89th minute from junior defender Anna Caniglia on a rebound.

Senior goalkeeper Brittany Pfeil collected six saves in both wins.
 
The two consecutive double-overtime victories mark the second time in Husker history the team has won consecutive multiple-overtime games. In 1996, Nebraska followed a double-overtime win against Texas A&M in the Big 12 championship game with a quadruple-overtime win over Minnesota in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
