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.
