EVANSTON, Ill. -- It looks as if No. 20 Nebraskas return to the Top 25 wont be a one-week affair.Tommy Armstrong Jr. threw for 246 yards and ran for a career-high 132 yards to lead the Cornhuskers to a 24 -13 victory over Northwestern on Saturday night in the Big Ten opener for both teams.Nebraska (4-0) remained unbeaten coming off a tight win over Oregon that vaulted the `Huskers into The Associated Press poll for the first time since December 2014.They lost two fumbles near the Northwestern goal line in the first half, but scored two touchdowns in the third quarter to stretch their lead from three to 11.We got two touchdowns early in the game, but theres no points on the board, coach Mike Riley said. So how are you going to react to that? Im really pleased with our reaction.The Wildcats (1-3) matched their loss total from last year when they went 10-3.Armstrong went 18 of 29, hitting Alonzo Moore with a 59-yarder in the first half and throwing a 4-yard touchdown strike to Cethan Carter that made it 17-7 early in the third after Aaron Williams intercepted Clayton Thorsons pass in the end zone.Terrell Newby ran for 69 yards and a touchdown . Moore had 72 yards receiving, and Nebraska finished with 556 yards in all.Thorson threw for 249 yards and had a 42-yard touchdown run. But he also threw two interceptions and was sacked four times, bringing his Big Ten-leading total to 15.Austin Carr had another big game for Northwestern with 109 yards receiving and a touchdown, giving him at least one scoring catch in three straight games. But a team that seemed to be getting on track with last weeks win over Duke after opening with losses to Western Michigan and Illinois State came up short against the resurgent Cornhuskers.These guys better figure it out pretty quick, coach Pat Fitzgerald said. They better walk out of the locker room. They better hug whoever they love. Theyd better go to bed and theyd better wake up and theyve got to get ready to get their rear ends coached off this week because thats whats gonna happen. Im not gonna sit here and Im not gonna take it and Im not gonna accept it. Theyd better buckle it up. Theyd better start hydrating right now because its not acceptable the way were playing.It starts and ends with me so Im gonna fix it.Nebraska drove 80 yards for a touchdown after Williams picked off Thorson in the end zone on the opening drive of the second half, with Carters 4-yard TD catch making it 17-7.Northwestern answered with a 24-yard TD pass from Thorson to Carr, but Jack Mitchells extra-point attempt hit the left upright. The Cornhuskers then went 79 yards with Jordan Westerkamp running it in from the 10 to boost the lead to 24-13.THE TAKEAWAYNEBRASKA: The Cornhuskers ultimately took charge after those early turnovers and continue to roll along in their second season under Mike Riley. Its a big improvement over last year, when they had to rally to finish 6-7.NORTHWESTERN: Coach Pat Fitzgerald has been criticizing his team for not finishing drives. Hell probably have more to say about it, considering Northwestern racked up 388 yards. But the defense had its difficulties, too.HOLD ONNebraska might have put this one away in the first half if not for the turnovers.On the games opening possession, Newby fumbled as he tried to lung across the goal line at the end of a 49-yard run with two defenders in pursuit. The ball popped out as he contorted himself in mid-air along the sideline and bounced through the end zone.Nebraska had the ball on the 2 late in the second quarter when a spinning Devine Ozigbo lost a fumble.POLL IMPLICATIONS:Nebraska certainly appeared to strengthen its standing in the poll with this win, taking control after a shaky first half.KICKING COMPETITIONWhile Fitzgerald said Jack Mitchell will continue to handle kickoffs, field-goal duties and extra points are now up for grabs. Mitchell will be competing this week with Matt Micucci after he booted a 27-yard field goal wide right and hit the upright on a missed PAT.UP NEXTNEBRASKA: The Cornhuskers return home to face Illinois, which handed them one of their most disappointing losses a year ago. That was on a last-second touchdown and extra point in Champaign.NORTHWESTERN: Northwestern goes on the road for the first time when it visits Iowa -- a 14-7 winner at Rutgers after a surprising loss to North Dakota State.

The team has a huge following among Palestinians and President Mahmoud Abbas once described the club as a second national team for the Palestinian people.The main purpose of this visit is to reconnect the team to our origins in Palestine, said team general manager Christian Elben Nazal, whose father immigrated to Chile from the town of Beit Jala.Chile is believed to be the home of the largest Palestinian community outside the Arab world, most from the historically Christian towns of Beit Jala, Bethlehem and Beit Sahur. The teams red, white, black and green jersey represents the colors of the Palestinian flag and the communitys attachment to their ancestral land.During the week-long visit, Palestino has visited historical sites and played two matches, one with the Palestinian national team, and another with an all-star team from the Hebron area. It also conducted training sessions with children and young players.Soccer fans braved the rain and chilly weather as they sat in the small stadium waiting for the beginning of the Hebron match last Thursday.The events announcer practiced introductions in Arabic and Spanish. Long banners on the side of the field read: From Santiago to Jerusalem you are in our heart.Palestinian national songs played over speakers, followed by the visiting teams Spanish Hymno de Club Deportivo Palestino as the competing squads entered the stadium to the crowds cheers.I dont care who wins, said Osama Montasir, 54, a local fan. We are witnessing an athletic carnival between Palestinians of the motherland and the diaspora.Palestinian sports officials are hoping the visit will push the game of soccer forward here.They will see how sports here suffer, said Hisham Abu Shekhidem, a team manager and a former player for Hebrons Al-Ahli soccer club. We will gain experience from them and this will help our national team.Like so many other aspects of Palestinian life, soccer is clouded by the rocky relationship with Israel. The Palestinian soccer federation has repeateedly attempted -- unsuccessfully -- to have Israel expelled from the FIFA world soccer federation on various grounds, accusing Israel of blocking the movement of athletes and saying that teams in West Bank settlements are illegal.ddddddddddddChilean players of Palestinian descent have come to play with local teams and the national squad in recent years. Now, Palestino is eyeing Palestinian players to come play in Chiles soccer leagues.Shadi Shaban, 24, a midfielder and former player in both the Palestinian and Israeli leagues, is now on loan to Palestino after being spotted during a training camp for Hebrons Al-Ahli in Santiago last year.Playing in Chile has been a great experience, its a higher level of soccer, said Shaban, who has been playing in Chile now for six months. As the first Palestinian to play in Chile, I opened the gate and I hope others will follow.While the Palestinian national soccer team currently ranks far behind at 133, according to this months FIFA rankings, Roberto Tito Bishara, a former player for Palestino and the Palestinian national team, is optimistic that the team will improve.I know how much they are trying to develop soccer here. Im sure Palestine will be in a World Cup soon, Bishara said.Palestino hasnt escaped controversy. In 2014, the Chilean Football Federation forced the club to alter its jersey that carried the number one in the shape of historical Palestine, including all of what is now Israel, after complaints from local Jewish organizations.On the current visit, the team had hoped to travel to Gaza but was unable to arrange the trip.While touring Jerusalems Old City last week, the players were also slightly startled by the sound of gunshots and the scene of soldiers running following the shooting of a Palestinian youth who stabbed and lightly wounded two Israeli police officers with a screwdriver.We were not surprised, its what we read about, but it was the first time to live the experience, said manager Nazal.The fast-paced match between Palestino and the Hebron all-stars team ended with a 1-1 draw.Carrying a cardboard sign that read Cheer for Palestine, Muhammad Netcha, 28, found the result to his liking.I support both teams, he said. Its a match between Palestine and Palestine. ' ' '
