Nebraska received the kickoff and Ameer Abdullah returned the ball 40 yards to the Nebraska 47 just seconds into the game. Then, the Huskies secondary gave out as quarterback Taylor Martinez completed a 50-yard pass to Kenny Bell. Martinez connected on a three-yard touchdown strike on the very next play to put Nebraska up early.
The Huskies are going to have to fight back in this one, if the first 34 seconds is any indication of the day to come. Washington would get a big win if they can pull the upset here, and they may just be easing into the game at the moment. Still, the defense is going to have up big time and not allow 34-second scores if they want to stay competitive in this one.
