Led by 435 yards offense from quarterback Taylor Martinez, the Nebraska Cornhuskers handed Oklahoma State its first loss of the season, 51-41.
Martinez threw for 323 yards and a career-high five touchdowns on 23-of-35 passes. He also ran for 112 yards on 19 carries for the No. 14 Cornhuskers.
Nebraska trailed for only five minutes in the second quarter following an 80-yard touchdown pass from OSU’s Brandon Weeden to Justin Blackmon.
The Cornhuskers responded with a touchdown pass from Martinez to Brandon Kinnie, who had three touchdown grabs, with under a minute left in the half and never looked back.
OSU struggled on offense as well, converting just 3-of-13 third downs. But the stats were there for the No.17 Cowboys with Kendall Hunter’s 201 yards on 26 carries and 157 yards receiving and two scores from Blackmon.
