Not much to detail in the final quarter. Nebraska tacked on its final touchdown on a long drive – 80 yards in 11 plays – that took almost six minutes.
The scoring play – a 19-yard up-the-gut rumble by running back Rex Burkhead – was certainly indicative of the UW's game-long effort.
Surrounded by three Huskies in close quarters, Burkhead broke free when he should have gone down, with no UW player giving chase.
The 56 points ties a single-game UW opponent record at Husky Stadium. California put up 56 on the Huskies in 2005, in similar fashion – dismantling the run defense. Quarterback Taylor Martinez, and running backs Roy Helu Jr. and Burkhead are all over 100 yards for the day.
The Cornhuskers totaled 383 yards on the ground – compared to the UW's 246 total yards.
Coming up is a bye week. The UW will hold late-morning practices likely through Thursday, and then have a few days off before resuming its preparation for the Pacific-10 Conference opener at Southern California.
