Nebraska is good at football. Minnesota is not. These facts were supported by Nebraska's 41-14 rout of Minnesota on this fine Saturday.
The Huskers rolled up 515 yards of total offense, more than doubling Minnesota's 254, and cruised in the second half after racing out to a 34-0 halftime lead. Taylor Martinez threw for a touchdown, and was one of five Nebraska rushers with more than 30 yards. Rex Burkhead led all players with 116 rushing yards, and Kenny Bell's 82-yard run was the longest of the game.
Meanwhile, Minnesota did embarrassing things like tackle its own player and concede a first down to Nebraska on a fumbled backward pass. I feel really sorry for Minnesota coach Jerry Kill.
