Nebraska running back Rex Burkhead returned for the first time Saturday since he hurt his left knee in the team's season-opening win over Southern Miss. Wearing a bulky brace on the knee, Burkhead started and looked great in the early going. The senior ran for 79 yards on his first three carries, including a highlight-reel 61-yard scoring scamper. Watch the touchdown run now.
We have to say, that run looked a bit like Burkhead's long TD against Southern Miss. Watch that one below:
