After three quarters of play in Lincoln, the No. 10 Nebraska Cornhuskers clung to a one-point lead over the Fresno State Bulldogs. Running back Rex Burkhead added some breathing room early in the fourth quarter with a six-yard touchdown run to give the Cornhuskers an eight-point lead.
Fresno State actually led 17-14 at the half, thanks in large part to a 67-yard punt return by wide receiver Devon Wylie and some shaky quarterback play by Nebraska's Taylor Martinez, whose strength still appears to lie with his legs. Martinez is just 10-of-21 passing, but several of his completions have been for big gains, including three pass plays of over 40 yards.
Martinez hit Quincy Enunwa for a 16-yard touchdown to give the Cornhuskers the lead in the third quarter.
Thus far, the Bulldogs are grinding it out with running back Robbie Rouse, who has 26 carries for 126 yards on the night. Quarterback Derek Carr is 16-of-30 for 161 yards and the three-yard touchdown to open the scoring.
