The Washington Huskies lead 14-10 against the No. 11 Nebraska Cornhuskers at the beginning of the second quarter. The Huskies started out on a sour note but quickly established themselves on offense to get back into the contest.
Nebraska received the ball off of the opening kickoff and used a 40-yard kickoff return and a 50-yard pass on the very first play to move deep into Washington territory. A three-yard pass from Taylor Martinez to Tyler Legate gave Nebraska a 7-0 lead just 34 seconds into the game.
The Huskies, though, came back and pieced together a six-play, 80-yard drive to pull even. Quarterback Keith Price found receiver Jermaine Kearse for a 38-yard touchdown score just three minutes later.
The Cornhuskers tacked on a 44-yard field goal two drives later to secure a 10-7 lead. A muffed punt by the Cornhuskers at the end of the first quarter gave the Huskies the ball deep in Nebraska territory, at the 23-yard line. The Huskies converted on another Price-Kearse reception for a seven-yard touchdown.
Washington leads 14-10 and could put Nebraska into an uncomfortable situation if they keep scoring as easily as they have.
