Amie Just and Luke Mullin break down Nebraska's win against Indiana on Saturday, Oct. 1, 2022, at Memorial Stadium.

In his first Big Ten home game, Mickey Joseph earned victory No. 1 as Nebraska football's interim head coach. 

Nebraska (2-3, 1-1 Big Ten) used a big fourth quarter to down visiting Indiana 35-21 on Saturday night. Afterward in the locker room, the celebration was raucous for Joseph's accomplishment. 

Nebraska football players chanted "Mickey" while Joseph radiantly beamed at the center of it all. 

Moments after, Nebraska AD Trev Alberts arrived to address the team and deliver Joseph the game ball.

"First of all, I want to tell you guys how proud I am of you. I'm so proud of you. Thank you for how hard you've worked, going through a lot with all this adversity," Alberts said. "I can't begin to tell you how proud I am of you. Thank you for representing us so well. But tonight is about another guy. His first win."

Joseph took over for the fired Scott Frost on Sept. 11. The victory snapped a nine-game FBS losing streak for the Huskers. Nebraska will aim for a winning streak when they travel to face Rutgers for a Friday night matchup on Oct. 7.
