Final - Nebraska 56, Southern Miss 13

Coming off of a scare against Wyoming in Week 1, the Nebraska Cornhuskers were looking to bounce back against another four-touchdown underdog in the Southern Miss Golden Eagles.

Boy, did they ever.

Nebraska scored two defensive touchdowns in the first quarter thanks to interceptions by Stanley Jean-Baptiste and Ciante Evans. The Cornhuskers took a 29-point lead into the break and made sure not to let their opponent back in the game like they did against Wyoming.

Taylor Martinez put together another solid outing, going 15-of-23 for 170 yards and three touchdowns before exiting in the third quarter. Ameer Abdullah led Nebraska in rushing, carrying the rock 17 times for 114 yards and two scores.

Just like last week, miscues killed the Golden Eagles. They were moving the ball well early, but turnovers led directly to two Nebraska touchdowns, and another pick late stalled a drive inside the 10-yard line. 

Southern Miss has now lost 14 straight games.
