Prior to yesterday, this is how opposing quarterbacks fared against Nebraska’s pass defense on third down: 42-122, 459 yards, 4 TDs, 5 INTs. That translates into a passer rating of 68.65.
This is what Aaron Murray did on third down against Nebraska.
Aaron Murray on third downs yesterday: 11-for-14 for 246 yards and two touchdowns. Goodness.—

I don’t know if Bill is using “Goodness” as an expression or a description, but either works. Murray’s passer rating on third down was a staggering 273.31.
