The Huskies have stemmed the tide after another horrible start – they trailed 14-0 4:15 into the game – and have done so with the running game.
Seventy of the team's 80 yards on the UW's scoring drive, capped by Jake Locker's 7-yard touchdown jaunt to the left pylon, cut Nebraska's lead to 14-7 at the 5:11 mark.
Surprisingly, running back Chris Polk has found room to run inside on the Cornhuskers.
Locker's first interception of the season came on his throw, trying to hit Devin Aguilar in the middle of the field on first down. Aguilar was double-teamed, and the pass was easily picked off by Eric Hagg.
Never miss a local story.
Two plays later, Nebraska's Taylor Martinez hit tight end Mike McNeill (the guy Kavario Middleton was supposed to replace next season) for a 24-yard scoring strike at the 12:49 mark.
Two minutes later, Martinez snuck it in from 1 yard out for a 14-0 Cornhuskers advantage.
