Anybody see this halftime score coming?
UW up, 10-7.
UW has more rushing yards than Nebraska, 102-54.
The Huskies did survive a major scare when quarterback Jake Locker, on a third-down run, took a violent blow to the head as he was sliding down on a third-down run by Nebraska safety Austin Cassidy, and stayed motionless on the field for minutes in the second quarter of the Holiday Bowl.
Never miss a local story.
He did eventually limp off the field after his 3-yard scamper at the 8:40 mark. Keith Price came on for the rest of the series before the Huskies punted.
Locker returned on the UW's next drive with 5:22 to go.
The Huskies did have an opportunity to tack on more points right before the half, but Erik Folk's 48-yard field goal attempt sailed wide left with 2 seconds to go.
Two big third-down conversions set up the Cornhuskers' first score - a Taylor Martinez 15-yard touchdown pass to Kyler Reed along the left hash, and the UW's lead has been sliced to 10-7 at the 10:24 mark of the second quarter.
