Michigan vs. Nebraska, 10.9

Columbus High School's Ernest Hausmann (right) walks the sideline before Nebraska plays Michigan on Saturday at Memorial Stadium.

The video was captured from the State Patrol helicopter while the audio was captured by a trooper on the field.

Columbus is 6-1 and appears headed toward a state playoff berth. Senior two-way standout Ernest Hausmann is playing a big part in that.

The Husker linebacker recruit continues to be a force on both sides of the ball for the Discoverers.

He was held without a catch in Friday's 55-28 win at Omaha Northwest, but he wasn't quiet defensively, finishing with seven tackles, including one behind the line of scrimmage.

Hausmann also had two pass deflections.
