Behind enemy lines
What those in the opposing locker room said:
Purdue coach Jeff Brohm on holding off the Huskers' rally: "… Our guys played hard, and when Nebraska responded and made some plays on us, our guys came back and responded as well. … It was a lot of fun to play in this stadium in front of a crowd like this."
Quarterback David Blough on winning at Nebraska: "It’s big for our program. Nebraska, no matter what, at home is a tough team to beat, whatever their record is. We knew we had to come and do the little things right and take care of the football."
Tight end Brycen Hopkins on Nebraska fans: "We love the fans and we knew to come in that they were going to be nice. They’re always nice and it is just fun to stay here. …It is overwhelming out there. It gets loud and you can’t hear anything and we have been practicing with that all week.”
Hopkins on playing for Brohm: “He holds us to a higher expectation than we ever thought (possible). He has really opened our eyes to our capabilities and we really appreciate it. This is just the start. We just plan on moving forward and winning even bigger games than this.”
Scanning the wires
What other media outlets are saying:
By the end, Purdue was just trying to survive. After slowing down Nebraska's spread offense, the Huskers caught fire and continued to make Saturday's Big Ten matchup interesting. And it became a little too interesting for the Boilermakers. Despite building a pair of 21-point leads in the second half, Purdue walked out of Memorial Stadium with a 42-28 victory, earning its second straight victory after three consecutive losses to start the season. … In the end, Purdue was able to hold on and now has a chance to get to .500 in two weeks at Illinois. Meanwhile, the Huskers lost for the eighth straight time and dropped to 0-4 this season under first-year coach Scott Frost.

What the fans and others are saying on Twitter:
Matt Brown (MattSBN): Folks, I like to call Nebraska football Arbys, because it isn't very good or fun to look at it and also is owned by Wendys
Nadean Spaulding (nspaulding64): Heads up #Huskers and @coach_frost I will never ever stop being a fan. It’s easy to cheer for always winning teams. I will be a fan who can say I was ALL IN-ALL THE WAY. Keep grinding!
Adam Rittenberg (ESPNRittenberg): #Nebraska is 0-4 and has lost eight in a row. Scott Frost will get it right, but this isn't the program the Big Ten thought it had added back in 2010.
Matt Sayler (@mjsayler): Bill Murray is at the #Huskers game today, so we have that going for us, which is nice
Don Sauberan (@eyeformation): Adrian Martinez showed a lot today...his future is definitely bright...
Nick Huddleson (@NickHuddleson): Give Devine Ozigbo the credit he deserves. Number one back. Clearly #Huskers
seth graves (S_Graves_Photo): Glad to see Coach Frost bench some guys that need to be benched. Also pumped to see the @HuskerFBNation keep fighting. Losing sucks but today there was progression. #GBR #HuskerNation
