Holiday Bowl: Washington Huskies Add Field Goal, Lead 10-0 After First Quarter

The Washington Huskies flew out of the gate, leaving the Nebraska Cornhuskers stunned, wondering what’s happened in the Holiday Bowl. Washington dashed out to a 7-0 lead, capitalizing on a Nebraska fumble to take the early lead. Washington added a field goal to cap an impressive first quarter, taking a 10-0 lead into the second frame.

The Huskies continue to dominate the line of scrimmage, using penetration to disrupt the Nebraska run game and keep freshman Taylor Martinez off-balance. On the other side of the ball, the Washington rushing attack has been the story as Chris Polk and Jake Locker have looked dominant early. Locker has yet to complete a pass, but the run game has kept the Huskies afloat, allowing them to thrive against a tough Nebraska defense. Jesse Callier did complete a pass, throwing back to Locker for 17 yards, setting up Polk’s touchdown.

The Music City Bowl is over on ESPN and the Holiday Bowl is finally available for viewers to see. Stay tuned to our StoryStream for more on the Holiday Bowl throughout the game.
