No. 14 Nebraska ran for 139 yards in the quarter, and the Cornhuskers lead 14-7 at the end of the first quarter. The Bruins struck first when Brett Hundley and Joseph Fauria hooked up for a 27-yard touchdown, the final play of a one-play, 27-yard drive.

UCLA’s punt return set the Bruins up to start the drive. Nebraska tied the score at seven apiece after Ameer Abdullah ran six yards to paydirt to finish off a six-play, 75-yard drive.

The Cornhuskers broke the 7-7 standstill when Taylor Martinez kept it himself for a 92-yard touchdown run to put a bow on a two-play, 96-yard scoring drive.

Nebraska’s defense is horrid, d-line getting sucked into blocks, entire team seems to allow ball carrier to initiate contact, embarrassing
