Northwestern Upsets Nebraska, 28-25

(AP) Second-string quarterback Kain Colter ran for two touchdowns and passed for another to lead Northwestern to a 28-25 upset of No. 9 Nebraska on Saturday. Filling in for injured starter Dan Persa in the second half, Colter scored from the 1 with 1:34 left to finish a 13-play, 66-yard drive that chewed more than 7 minutes off the clock after the Cornhuskers had pulled to 21-18. Taylor Martinez passed for 289 yards and two scores for Nebraska (7-2, 3-2 Big Ten). Persa injured his left shoulder in the second quarter when he was slammed to the ground by Eric Martin.
