Evanston, Ill. – Taylor Martinez accounted for more than 400 total-offense yards and rallied the Nebraska football team from 12 points down midway through the fourth quarter for a 29-28 win at Northwestern Saturday.
Nebraska’s fourth-quarter comeback marked its second double-digit rally in Big Ten play this season and gave the Huskers their first road win of the year. It matched the largest fourth-quarter comeback in school history.
It also improved NU to 5-2 overall and 2-1 in Big Ten play, while dropping Northwestern to 6-2 overall and 2-2 in the conference.
Martinez was nothing short of sensational in the fourth quarter for the Huskers, completing a pair of long touchdown drives in the final eight minutes with touchdown strikes. For the day, the junior quarterback from Corona, Calif., went 27-of-39 for 342 yards and three touchdowns without throwing an interception. He added 18 carries for 65 yards on the ground, while accounting for another score, giving him a hand in all four of the Huskers’ touchdowns on the day.
He was at his best with the game on the line in front of a sellout crowd of 47,330 fans at Ryan Field in Evanston with an ABC national television audience looking on.
Martinez and the Huskers had their backs to the wall after Mike Trumpy’s three-yard touchdown plunge pushed Northwestern’s lead to 28-16 with 8:31 left in the game.
Nebraska started 1st-and-10 at its own 20 and Martinez carried twice for 14 yards to set up 1st-and-10 at the 34. A pair of incompletions put the the Huskers at 3rd-and-10, before Martinez hit Kyler Reed for 16 yards and a crucial first down. It was the first of five completions for Martinez on six snaps, including a 30-yard connection with wide receiver Quincy Enunwa to put NU 1st-and-Goal at the Northwestern 8. After an incompletion on a screen pass attempt to Ameer Abdullah, Martinez hit Taariq Allen for his first career touchdown on a highlight reel catch in the corner of the end zone to pull th Huskers within 28-23 with 5:55 left.
The Blackshirts then stepped up, as they had done throughout the day, forcing their 10th three-and-out of the contest to give Martinez and the Huskers the ball back with plenty of time to operate, while sending the more than 20,000 red-clad Nebraska fans into a frenzy.
Nebraska started 1st-and-10 at its own 24, and Martinez wasted little time putting the Huskers in business, hooking up again with Enunwa, this time for 31 yards on the first play of the drive. On 3rd-and-3 at the Northwestern 38, Martinez hit Enunwa again to convert with a six-yard completion.
On the next play, Martinez hit Jamal Turner on a 25-yard strike to put the Huskers 1st-and-Goal at the Wildcat 7. Martinez stayed hot, hitting senior tight end Ben Cotton on a seven-yard strike in the middle of the end zone to put the Huskers up 29-28.
In the two decisive drives, Martinez went 10-for-13 for 140 yards and two touchdowns through the air, while adding three carries for 16 yards to account for all 156 Husker yards in the two drives. Enunwa was his favorite target in the last eight minutes, hauling in four receptions for 74 yards on the two drives on his way to a career day. Enunwa finished with six receptions for a career-best 110 yards in his first career 100-yard receiving game.
Following Cotton’s touchdown catch, the Huskers went for two to try and push their lead to a field goal at 31-28, but Martinez’s pass attempt fell incomplete and gave the Wildcats a chance to win with a field goal.
Northwestern drove to the Nebraska 36, but the Blackshirts held on 3rd-and-7, nearly grabbing two interceptions in the final series, before forcing a career-long field goal attempt by the Wildcats’ Jeff Budzien from 53 yards out. Budzien, who was a perfect 11-for-11 on field goal attempts this season and 29-for-29 on PATs, missed his first kick of the year wide right with 1:10 left, and Nebraska escaped with its first-ever win in Evanston.
Statistically, Nebraska dominated the game, rolling up 543 yards of total offense, while holding Northwestern to just 301. Nebraska rushed for 201 yards, notching its seventh consecutive 200-yard rushing performance of the season.
But three first-half turnovers and some game-changing penalties cost the Huskers in the first half. Abdullah and Kenny Bell both muffed first-half punts, while Reed fumbled after catching a pass for a first down deep inside Northwestern territory. NU also lost a fumble recovery on a muffed punt by the Wildcats inside Northwestern’s own 20, after a personal foul called on Daimion Stafford away from the play. The Huskers also did it without senior I-back Rex Burkhead, who left the game in the first quarter with an injury. Burkhead carried four times for 13 yards in the game’s first seven minutes.
Despite the mistakes, the Huskers kept fighting on their way to matching the largest fourth-quarter comeback in school history. Nebraska most recently rallied from a 12-0 fourth-quarter deficit at Missouri in 2009, while also coming back from 12 down at Colorado (19-7) in 1966.
Abdullah led the Nebraska ground game with his third 100-yard rushing effort of the season, finishing with 101 yards on 19 carries. In addition to Enunwa’s big receiving day, Bell finished with six receptions for 77 yards, while Abdullah added five grabs for 21 yards. Turner contributed three catches for 56 yards, while Reed and Tim Marlowe each added a pair of receptions.
The Blackshirts held Northwestern’s Kain Colter in check, limiting him to just 35 rushing yards on 14 carries and just 1-of-2 passing for five yards. Colter also managed just three receptions for 17 yards.
Venric Mark led the Wildcat ground game with 16 carries for 118 yards, including an 80-yard touchdown burst on Northwestern’s opening drive of the second half. That run put Northwestern up 21-10, after taking a 14-0 lead into the locker room at halftime.
The Huskers limited Wildcat quarterback Trevor Siemian as well, as he completed just 15-of-35 passes for 116 yards. But Siemian did not throw an intercpetion and tossed a pair of touchdown passes in the first half.
Nebraska jumped to a quick 3-0 lead on Brett Maher’s 27-yard field goal with 11:21 left in the opening quarter. That score was set up by Martinez’s first completion to Enunwa of 30 yards on the day to put the Huskers at the Northwestern 18.
Northwestern answered with Siemian’s 10-yard pass to Dan Vitale with 1:35 left in the first quarter to go up 7-3. That Wildcat drive began after Abdullah’s muffed punt gave Northwestern the ball at the Husker 14.
Despite a fumbled punt by Bell with 12:22 left in the half, and Reed’s fumble at the Northwestern 22 just two minutes later, the Huskers still regained the lead on Martinez’s 37-yard touchdown strike to Bell with 8:25 left in the second quarter.
But the Wildcats took a 14-10 lead into the locker room at halftime on Siemian’s 26-yard pass to Tony Jones with 1:25 left. Nebraska trailed despite the Blackshirts forcing seven three-and-outs and holding the Wildcats to just 107 total yards on 38 plays in the first half.
After Mark put Northwestern up 21-10 with his explosive run with 12:17 left in the third, Martinez answered with a three-yard scoring run with 1:09 left in the quarter. Nebraska attempted a two-point conversion on the play, but Braylon Heard’s run failed and the Huskers trailed 21-16.
Stafford and P.J. Smith led the Blackshirts with eight tackles apiece on the afternoon, while defensive tackle Baker Steinkuhler and defensive end Eric Martin added six stops. Stanley Jean-Baptiste added a career day with five pass breakups from his cornerback spot, the highest total by a Husker defender since Zackary Bowman batted away five balls against Michigan in the 2005 Alamo Bowl.
Nebraska returns to Memorial Stadium for the first time since Sept. 29, when the Huskers play host to Michigan on Saturday, Oct. 27, at 7 p.m. The game will air live nationally on ESPN2 and will mark Michigan’s first-ever appearance at Memorial Stadium and the Wolverines’ first visit to Lincoln since 1911.

Champaign, Ill.- The No. 4 Nebraska volleyball team (17-2, 9-1) proved to be too much for the No. 25 Fighting Illini on Sunday afternoon as the Huskers downed Illinois in three sets (25-16, 25-23, 25-16). The Huskers earned their ninth-consecutive win of the season and their 10th sweep overall.
Morgan Broekhuis led Nebraska on the day with 10 kills and three aces. Gina Mancuso tallied eight kills, while Hannah Werth had eight kills and a season-high 18 digs. Meghan Haggerty was seven-for-nine in attacks, recording a .778 hitting percentage, as Hayley Thramer led the Nebraska block with eight, and Lauren Cook had 27 assists.
Nebraska hit .310 in the match, while Illinois hit just .147. NU out-blocked the Illini 12-6.
Nebraska came out firing in the first set, taking a 6-2 early lead behind a kill from Mancuso and back-to-back errors on the Illini. Back-to-back aces by Broekhuis gave Nebraska a 10-5 lead, while the Huskers then went up 13-6 on a hitting error by the Illini. NU took a 10-point lead on a kill by Werth, as back-to-back kills from Broekhuis put Nebraska up 21-10. Three set points eventually gave Nebraska a 25-16 first-set win.
Mancuso tallied four kills for the Huskers in the first set, while Broekhuis and Werth both had three. Cook notched eight assists, guiding NU to a .286 hitting percentage in the set. Illinois hit .133 as both teams recorded two team blocks.
Illinois earned its first lead of the match at 4-3 on a service ace from Nebraska early in the second set. The Huskers cut it to 6-5, but Illinois stretched its lead to 11-6 as Nebraska called a timeout. A block by Haggerty and Werth and another ace from Broekhuis put Nebraska within one at 15-14, as the Huskers used a kill from Mancuso to go up 19-17. The Huskers took a 23-21 lead on another kill from Mancuso, as NU won the second set 25-23 on a kill by Werth.
Mancuso had five kills in the second set, while Broekhuis notched four and both Werth and Haggerty had three of their own. Cook tabbed 11 assists for NU, as Nebraska notched a .257 hitting percentage. Illinois hit .222 in the second set and tied the Huskers with four team blocks.
In the third set the Huskers took a 4-1 lead on a kill by Werth, while a huge block from Thramer and Mancuso powered NU to a 13-10 lead and forced Illinois to call a timeout as NU went up 14-10. A double-stuff block by Cook and Haggerty gave the Huskers an 18-13 lead, as a kill by Haggerty made it 20-14, NU. Nebraska went on to close out Illinois with a 25-16 third-set win, completing the sweep.
Thramer posted five kills in the third set, while Broekhuis had three of her own. Nebraska hit .400 in the final set, while Illinois was held to a .086 hitting percentage.

LAS VEGAS, N.M. – Chadron State quarterback Jonn McLain found Allan Schmaltz for a 21-yard touchdown in the back of the end zone with 36 seconds to play to give the Eagles a thrilling 36-33 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference victory over New Mexico Highlands Saturday.
The Eagles, who trailed by double digits twice in the game, drove 75 yards in 10 plays in just over a minute to secure their victory and improve to 6-2 overall and 5-1 in the RMAC.
“I’m just extremely proud of the guys,” first-year head coach Jay Long said. “We kept competing until the end and they always believed in one another and that’s something we have at Chadron State that is very special. It was here when I played and it’s here now.”
Highlands, now 6-2 and 5-1 in the RMAC, still had a chance to move into field goal range on its final possession but safety Cole Montgomery intercepted quarterback Emmanuel Lewis’ pass to thwart any additional late game dramatics.
The fourth quarter was wild as each team owned a lead before Schmaltz’s touchdown sealed the Cowboys’ fate.
Chadron State went up 27-26 early in the final quarter when McLain connected with Chapman Ham on a 25-yard strike. After the Cowboys went three and out on offense, the Eagles seized their chance and added a field goal – a 34 yarder from Alex Ferdinand – to go up, 30-26.
The Cowboys offense failed to score again on their next drive and the Eagles were looking to drive down the field and run the clock down. However, New Mexico Highlands sacked McLain on third down and the Eagles were forced to punt with four minutes to play.
On the punt, the ball sailed over punter Josh Borm‘s head and the Cowboys gained possession on CSC’s side of the field. They immediately took advantage of it and scored in two plays.
Lewis scrambled for a short gain and then connected on a 20-yard touchdown pass to Kevon Williams with less than two minutes to play that put them up 36-33.
However, just like they had all game, the Eagles shrugged off the sudden change in momentum and drove down the field in quick fashion, culminating with McLain’s fourth TD pass of the day.
The Cowboys came out firing in the opening half. They fielded an onside kick on the opening play and then took a 7-0 lead on their second possession after Lavell Peterson scored from seven yards out.
Highlands added to its early lead with a 49-yard field goal from Zach Tapia and things were looking to be in the Cowboys’ favor. However, the Eagles shrugged off their sluggish start and got things going in the second quarter by scoring 10 unanswered points.
Highlands took control late in the quarter, capitalizing on Chadron State mistakes and scoring twice within the final five minutes. Lewis hit John Webster for a 16-yard pass. Following a fumble on a punt return, Tapia kicked a 42-yard field goal as the clock ran out to give the Cowboys a 20-10 lead.
Both teams traded field goals early in the third quarter but the Eagles crawled back into the game when McLain found Schmaltz for an 18-yard score midway through the frame.
Chadron State will host Western New Mexico for Homecoming Saturday. Kickoff is set for 1:30 p.m.

Mike Glesinger speaking of sports (and more…)
I WISH I KNEW THEN WHAT I KNOW NOW..OR CONFESSIONS OF A BEGINNING BROADCASTER
We’ve all heard the saying..” I wish I knew then what I know now”. I find myself saying that a lot. This year marks my 30th season of broadcasting High School sports and through the years I think I’ve experienced every sort of weather, location and technical problem there is. This takes me back to my first year as a sportscaster working for my first commercial radio station. I started working at KNLV Radio in Ord, Ne. in May of 1982, fresh out of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and ready to become “Boy Wonder” of radio. While I was in college, broadcasting students would call play by play of the Cornhusker games on the student radio station, KRNU-FM. We did football, Freshman football, Men’s and Women’s basketball and baseball. We just did home games so we were spoiled by the first class facilities and all the perks, like lunch in a nice press box, a press room with stats, rosters, programs etc, all the pop you can drink and a great view of the games, out of the elements. When you get into the real world…this all changes.
I thought it was a great thing to have on your resume and audition tape that you broadcast University of Nebraska sports and I always tried to work that in a conversation..”Yea..I used to broadcast the Huskers”. I don’t know if that helped in landing my first job, but it was all I had. So…football season 1982, I’m ready to go. My first assignment…8 man football..Arcadia at Sargent. “All right”..let’s get going! “OK..who’s keeping stats..who’s spotting..who’s engineering? My partner says..”well it’s just you and me, we’ve only got a 2 man crew and we do our own stats and spotting”. “Oh..when I did the Huskers..we had a 6 man crew”…”note to self”….get the rosters and starters in advance and make a bunch of enlarged copies.
Well we get to the game site and I walk up and say ” I’m here to broadcast the game..where do I set up in the press box”? The local Athletic Director says ” Well, we have a very small crows nest and there’s only room for the clock operator and public address announcer… If I’d have known you were comming I would have made arrangements to have a flat bed truck or somthing for you”. “Oh, when I did the Huskers, we always had a spot in the press box.” “Humm..note to self..”it might be a good idea to call ahead and let them know you are comming.” “OK, where would you like us to set up? “You can stand on top of the crows nest and run your cables down to the phone jack inside” “OK..how about chairs?”
“Again, If I had known you were comming , I would have had chairs for you.” By the way, do you have any coats or anything, it might rain”. “Oh, when I was doing the Huskers, we had a heated press box.. “note to self…”it might be a good idea to bring coats and plastic sacks to protect the equipment.”
So we crawl up on top of the crows nest with small raindrops falling and a big gust of wind blows my roster off the roof…”Humm..note to self…it might be a good idea to tape the rosters to a board of some sort so they don’t blow away”.
So the game goes along and it’s a pretty good game..A Sargent player makes a long run and I say…”he’s to the 30..the 40..the 50…the…30…what!! This field is only 80 yards long!…”Humm..note to self…it might be a good idea to study the 8-man football rules”.
So the game ends and needless to say, I’m a little bit humbled. It was certainly a lot different than I thought it would be. No perks..No comfort..NO FREE FOOD AND POP! But then it dawned on me, it’s the game and the kids and the hometowns that are the most important, I was just the messenger, to bring the game to Grandparents and fans and anybody who couldn’t attend. It’s not about me. It’s all those other folks and more. So I can talk about broadcasting the Huskers, all I want, but it doesn’t matter and that is a lesson I learned very early. So like I said at the beginning…”I wish I knew then, what I know now”.
Lincoln, Neb. – The Nebraska football team began to wrap up preparations for this week’s game on Thursday afternoon, practicing in helmets and sweats in the Hawks Championships Center. The team worked out for just over 90 minutes as they continued to gear up for this weekend’s Big Ten Legends Division matchup against Northwestern in Evanston, Ill.
Following practice, Head Coach Bo Pelini met with the media and discussed what kind of mental advantage a bye-week gives to young players trying to make a jump.
“I think (it helps) with everybody,” Pelini said. “The more reps you get at it, the more understanding you get, the more comfortable you get and the more confident you get. That translates to playing better football. I keep telling our guys, the more time you put into it on the field, off the field, spending time thinking about it, going over your notes and the details, it’s going to allow you to have greater success.”
When asked if the team was in a similar mentality coming off the bye week as they were coming out of fall camp, Pelini said the players are ready to roll.
“There’s a lot of things that go into the situation we’re in,” Pelini said. “The motivations are what they are. They may be a little different for each guy, but we know what we have to do.”
Pelini also stated that senior running back Rex Burkhead will be available against the Wildcats this weekend.
“Rex is ready to go,” Pelini said. “He’s about as 100 percent as he’s going to get. He’s feeling good and ready to roll.”
Overall, Pelini said he feels good about what the team was able to achieve this week and stated the team is ready to play.
“I thought it was a good week of practice,” Pelini said. “We’ve still got some things to clean up, but I thought overall it was a good week. We’re ready to go and looking forward to the game.”
Nebraska will conduct a final walkthrough practice tomorrow before traveling to Illinois to face Northwestern. Saturday’s matchup between the Huskers and the Wildcats is slated for a 2:30 p.m. CDT kickoff and will be broadcast regionally on ABC and ESPN2. Radio coverage includes AM 1400, KCOW in Alliance.
Lincoln – Nebraska’s Jordan Hooper claimed second-team All-America honors in Athlon Magazine’s preseason listing of the nation’s top women’s basketball players this week.
Hooper, a 6-2 junior forward from Alliance, Neb., was one of 10 players nationally recognized by the publication on its first- and second-team All-America squads. Hooper earned honorable-mention All-America accolades from the Associated Press last season, while shooting a young Nebraska team to a top-20 final national ranking by the AP.
Hooper, who became the first sophomore in Nebraska history to reach the 1,000 point scoring mark in her career, was a first-team All-Big Ten pick while helping the Huskers to a 24-9 overall record in 2011-12.
Last season, Hooper was a midseason candidate for the Wade and Naismith trophies, and she has already been chosen as one of 25 players on the 2013 Wade Watch List this season. She is joined by teammate Lindsey Moore on that select list of national player-of-the-year candidates.
Hooper averaged 18.9 points and a Big Ten-best 9.3 rebounds per game as a sophomore. She also led the Big Ten with 14 double-doubles on the year. Hooper was one of three Big Ten Conference players named to the Athlon All-America teams, joining Penn State’s Maggie Lucas and Ohio State’s Tayler Hill.
Nebraska, which advanced to the 2012 NCAA Tournament, was ranked No. 21 in the Athlon preseason poll. The Huskers open their 2012-13 exhibition season by taking on Pittsburg State on Monday, Oct. 29 at the Devaney Center in Lincoln.
