For the first time since 1911, the Nebraska Cornhuskers (5-2, 2-1 Big Ten) hosted the 22nd-ranked Michigan Wolverines (5-2, 3-0) in a huge Big Ten Legends Division matchup. Nebraska nabbed a 23-9 win over Michigan to move into a tie atop the Legends Division.
The Huskers out-gained Michigan 325 yards to 188, even with a hobbled Taylor Martinez. Martinez injured his ankle in the first half but played through it in the second half.
Michigan played without Denard Robinson, who injured his wrist late in the first half. Redshirt freshman QB Russell Bellomy never got a rhythm going (3-of-16).
The Husker defense nabbed three interceptions in the second half to secure the win.
