Nebraska Vs. Washington Final Score: Huskers Use Strong Second Half In 51-38

At the half in Lincoln, Nebraska held a slim, 20-17 lead over the Washington Huskies and looked to be headed for a second-half dogfight. But in the span of a few minutes, Nebraska took complete control, scoring on a one-yard touchdown, recovering a fumble at the goal-line and punching it in to turn a three-point lead into a 17-point lead while putting the Huskies on their heels.

Nebraska scored 24 unanswered points to open the half, then hung on to survive a late Washington push in a 51-38 win. Washington piled on 21 points of their own in the final quarter, with Nebraska adding a touchdown for good measure to ensure the victory.

Keith Price passed for 274 yards and four touchdowns, but also threw two interceptions in the loss. Price was hobbled by two bad knees, sustaining some kind of right knee injury at the hands of the Huskers to go with an existing left knee injury. Taylor Martinez completed just 10 of 21 passes for 155 yards and two touchdowns while also running for 83 yards and a score.

Washington Vs. Nebraska Score: Huskers Late Field Goal Results In Halftime Lead

The third matchup in the last year between the Washington Huskies and Nebraska Cornhuskers is more Holiday Bowl than Husky Stadium, with a tight battle underway in Lincoln. After a early spurt of scoring from both sides, the defenses settled in, slowing the pace down a bit as the half wore on.

Nebraska struck quickly, using just two plays and 34 seconds to take a 7-0 lead in the first quarter. But Washington answered the bell, striking back with an 80-yard drive to knot the score at seven.

All went quiet until a Nebraska field goal gave the Huskers a three-point advantage midway through the first quarter. After trading fruitless possessions, the Huskies found the end zone again, taking a 14-10 lead early in the second quarter on a Keith Price pass to Jermaine Kearse. The touchdown was Kearse's second on the day.

Nebraska added a touchdown of their own just over a minute later as Taylor Martinez found Aaron Green for the score as the Cornhuskers jumped back into the lead, 17-14. The teams traded field goals to end the half, with Nebraska kicking its as time expired to head into the break with a three-point lead, 20-17.

Nebraska Vs. Washington Score: Fast Start Fizzles, Cornhuskers Lead

The Nebraska Cornhuskers came firing out of the gate in Lincoln, putting the Washington Huskies in an early hole with a quick strike on the first possession of the game. In a moment reminiscent of last year's regular season matchup, Nebraska quickly found the end zone, taking just 34 seconds this time around. After a solid kick return, Taylor Martinez took over, and took advantage of a Washington defensive miscue along the way.

Martinez needed all of two plays to cover 53 yards, picking up 50 on the first play from scrimmage -- a long pass to Kenny Bell. On the next play, Martinez rolled to his right and found Tyler Legate for the touchdown, giving Nebraska an early 7-0 lead.

But unlike the last year's September matchup, the Huskies quickly answered back, driving 80 yards in six plays for the score. Keith Price found Jermaine Kearse for 38 yards and the touchdown, knotting the score at seven.

Nebraska added a field goal later in the first, but the defenses finally found their groove along the way. Since the early barrage of scoring, it's been a slog, with both teams stalling on the offensive side of the back.

Near the end of the first quarter, Nebraska leads Washington, 10-7.
