If you love offense, there was plenty of it Saturday when Nebraska hosted Idaho State. Unfortunately, for Idaho State, the offensive showcase was all on the side of the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Nebraska improved to 3-1 on the season with a lopsided 73-7 win.
Nebraska’s first possession ended in a failed field-goal attempt from 51 yards out, but senior I-back Rex Burkhead took the Cornhusker offense onto his shoulders on the second possession, scampered through the line and went 61 yards for the first score of the game.
Nebraska eased out to a 66-0 lead after three quarters of play, put in the second- and third-team players and controlled the clock to put the finishing touches on the win.
