Ohio State Vs. Nebraska Final Score: Huskers Rally Back, Win 34-27

At half time the Ohio State Buckeyes had a comfortable 27-6 lead after their opening drive of the second half. It looked like Nebraska was going to drop their second straight Big 10 game, until Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller got knocked out of the game. The Huskers bagan a rally with an 18-yard touchdown run by quarterback Taylor Martinez and never looked back.

Nebraska went on to score 28 unanswered points to complete the 21 point comeback victory, 34-27. Martinez led the Huskers on the ground and through the air, passing for 185 yards and two touchdowns and rushing for 100 yards and another touchdown. Nebraska running back Rex Burkhead also assisted in the comeback, rushing for 117 yards and touchdown, as well as getting 59 receiving yards and a touchdown.

The game turned for Ohio State when quarterback Joe Bauserman took over and the Buckeyes offense became nonexistent. Bauserman couldn't hit his receivers to convert third downs and threw a critical interception late that setup Nebraska to tie the football game. Bauserman ended the day completing just 1 of 10 passes for 13 yards and the aforementioned interception.

Ohio State falls to 3-3 on the season and 0-2 in the Big 10 while Nebraska picks up their first win in the Big 10, moving to 5-1 and 1-1 in the division.

Ohio State Vs. Nebraska Score Update: Huskers Take The Lead After Joe Bauserman Interception

After Nebraska scored 21 unanswered points on Ohio State, back up quarterback Joe Bauserman threw a deep pass that was intercepted.

Nebraska running back Rex Burkhead punched the ball from 17 yards out to put the Huskers up 34-27.

To answer, Ohio State took the ensuing kick off and decided to go three-and-out after two straight horrible incompletions by quarterback Joe Bauserman. The last thing Ohio State needed if they wanted to get back into the game was a three-and-out and give Nebraska's hot offense the ball back. The Huskers have now scored 28 unanswered points in the second half.

Ohio State Vs. Nebraska Game Update: Taylor Martinez Leads Huskers To Tie Game 27-27

The Ohio State Buckeyes held a 27-6 lead early in the third quarter, but the Nebraska Corn Huskers have scored 21 unanswered points since then. Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller was moving the ball through the air and with his legs, but got knocked out of the game. Since then, quarterback Joe Bauserman was been completely ineffective for the Buckeyes and their offense has become all but nonexistent.

Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez has led the charge for the Huskers, scoring 21 straight points to tie the game. With Bauserman throwing an interception after Nebraska tied the game, Martinez is looking to rally the Huskers and take the lead on a Buckeyes team who can't move the football on offense.

Ohio State Vs. Nebraska Score Update: Buckeyes Lead Huskers 27-13

The Nebraska Corn Huskers are having a rude welcoming to the Big 10 so far. After trailing the Ohio State Buckeyes 20-6 at halftime, the Huskers have put a little more points on the board thanks to a late touchdown drive led by quarterback Taylor Martinez. On the night so far, Martinez only has 80 passing yards and an interception but, he's picked up 35 yards on the ground, including the most recent 18-yard touchdown.

Ohio State looks to continue to lean on it's rushing attack, already racking up over 200 yards on the ground. Currently, Carlos Hyde is averaging over 10 yards a carry while quarterback Braxton Miller is getting it done through the air and on the ground.

Nebraska has the ball as it stands, they'll be looking to get back within a touchdown and try to pull off the comeback.

Ohio State Vs. Nebraska Update: Buckeyes Lead Huskers, 17-3

Nebraska's home Big Ten debut is going as well as its road Big Ten debut-in other words, things could be better. The Ohio St. Buckeyes lead the Cornhuskers, 17-3, in the second quarter. Running back Carlos Hyde had the most explosive play of the game so far with his 63-yard touchdown run. He had 67 yards on the ground in total. Quarterback Braxton Miller had the earlier touchdown when he connected with Jake Stoneburner for a 32-yard touchdown pass.

Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez is 8-of-8 for 53 yards, but accounts for nearly the entire team's total yardage (68). Brett Maher hit a 50-yard field goal to put the Huskers on the board in the first quarter.

This one has all the makings of another embarrassing loss in the Huskers' new conference.
