No. 7 Nebraska Vs. Kansas State, Third Quarter: Huskers Lead, 38-6

That escalated rapidly, and Nebraska's offense is all flash and style en route to a thorough beatdown: On the Huskers' third play from scrimmage in the second half, Taylor Martinez ripped off an 80-yard touchdown run, a stunner that left the entire Wildcat D basically flat-footed.

Another sack on Coffman stopped Kansas State's answering drive, and a new Husker got a highlight moment: Senior RB Roy Helu broke away in a 68-yard run on the first play following the Wildcats' punt.

K-State did get off a 48-yard field goal, though, so that's nice for them! And stop me if this is starting to sound familiar: Two plays later Taylor Martinez threw a 79-yard touchdown pass to Kyler Reed. At the end of the fourth quarter, Nebraska leads, 38-6.

No. 7 Nebraska Vs. Kansas State, Second Quarter: Huskers Lead, 17-3

After pinning the Huskers at their own 5 and not letting them past their own 20, the Wildcats managed to march the ball to the Nebraska 29 for a 46-yard field goal, cutting the Huskers' lead to 4.

It took Nebraska only eight plays to eat 87 yards and score a responding touchdown on a 35-yard Taylor Martinez run. ("Run" is a bit of a misnomer; it was more of a duck-and-weave, but 35 yards is 35 yards.) Following a Wildcat three-and-out, Martinez ripped off a monster 54-yard scramble to set up a 59-yard Husker field goal.

At the half, Nebraska leads K-State, 17-3.

No. 7 Nebraska Vs. Kansas State, First Quarter: Huskers Lead, 7-0

Kansas State's first Daniel Thomas-heavy drive stalled out at the Nebraska 25 on a failed 4th-and-2 conversion.

The Huskers' answering "Lean On Me" antics proved more fruitful, combining three Taylor Martinez rushes, one 24-yard pass to Mike McNeill, and one more 14-yard Martinez scramble to garner Nebraska a 7-0 lead.

The Wildcats turned to QB Carson Coffman for their second drive, which ended rather unceremoniously on a sack at the Nebraska 43.

At the end of the first quarter, the Huskers lead the Wildcats, 7-0.
