Taylor Martinez and the Nebraska Cornhuskers take on Johnathan Franklin and the UCLA Bruins.

The Nebraska Cornhuskers look to capitalize off a career performance from Taylor Martinez and try to stay on the right track to the Rose Bowl when they face off with the UCLA Bruins. Nebraska lit up Southern Mississippi in opening week, with Martinez throwing five touchdowns. However, the Huskers could be without starting running back Rex Burkhead, who is questionable with an MCL sprain. Nebraska might have to rely on a platoon of Ameer Abdullah, Braylon Heard and Imani Cross.

UCLA will try to keep the offensive explosiveness going after an impressive start against Rice. Brett Hundley had a solid debut and Johnathan Franklin ran all over the field for over 200 yards and three touchdowns on the ground. Although there were still some old issues that resurfaced through the game, UCLA overcame them to prevail. The Bruins now face their first true test this year in Nebraska, who figure to have the offense to match and a far more formidable defensive front to overcome.

Game time, TV channel: 7:30 p.m. ET, FOX

Point spread: Nebraska opened as 4.5 point favorites, now varies from five to six points.
