Iowa Vs. Nebraska Final Score: Huskers Win Easily As Rex Burkhead Dominates

Know those games where the Nebraska Cornhuskers inexplicably fail to get the ball to Rex Burkhead on a consistent basis? This was not one of those games. Nebraska defeated the Iowa Hawkeyes on Friday by a final score of 20-7, thanks to a huge performance by Burkhead. He carried the ball 38 times for 159 yards and a touchdown as his team controlled the clock en route to an easy win.

Iowa's touchdown came late in garbage time with the game already sewn up for the Huskers, with Marcus Coker scoring on a two-yard rush. The Iowa defense struggled to get the ball back all game, as Iowa recorded 25 first downs and went 9-19 on third down, leading to their control of the clock and the scoreboard. The Huskers can't get to a BCS bowl, but will be happy to close out their inaugural Big Ten season on a high.
