Let’s see more of this guy on offense . . . Christian Turner. Turner (10 carries for 55 yards) made his college debut and looked pretty good doing it. He’s very small right now and needs to keep adding weight to his body in the coming off-season, but he showed some decent quickness and toughness. If Chris Evans needs to miss more time with his hamstring injury, it would be nice to see Turner get some snaps behind Karan Higdon and Tru Wilson.
Hit the jump for the rest of the awards.
Let’s see less of this guy on offense . . . nobody. It was a blowout. Let’s see everyone.
Let’s see more of this guy on defense . . . Khaleke Hudson. He missed the second half of last week and the first half of Nebraska because he targeted SMU quarterback William Brown. Then he entered the Nebraska game and promptly targeted Nebraska’s walk-on backup QB, which means he’ll miss the first half of next week’s Northwestern game. He needs to take the next week and learn how to tackle legally.
Let’s see less of this guy defense . . . Jordan Glasgow. You know, once Khaleke Hudson learns how to stop targeting.
Play of the game . . . Donovan Peoples-Jones’s punt return touchdown.

MVP of the game . . . Devin Bush, Jr. Bush had decent stats (6 tackles, 2 tackles for loss, 1 sack) but they weren’t spectacular. It was the attitude of the plays he made that made the difference. He was all over the field and shut down a couple option plays with his speed and change-of-direction ability. With Michigan’s offense clicking and Bush (and other defenders) playing at such a high level, it’s no wonder that Nebraska quit pretty early on in this game.
