The Washington Huskies tied No. 11 Nebraska Cornhuskers 17-17 on a field goal, giving both teams extra motivation in the remaining minutes of the second quarter to score. The Huskies have climbed back from early first-quarter struggles to make this a ballgame.

Nebraska came right back with a 66-yard kickoff return from Ameer Abdullah. Three plays later, the Cornhuskers regained control of the lead with a 25-yard pass from quarterback Taylor Martinez to Aaron Green.

Washington drove the length of the field on the following drive and managed to connect on a 41-yard field goal by Erik Polk. The two teams are tied 17-17.
