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.
