College Football Scores: Nebraska Has Big Lead At Half, But Martinez Is Hurting
It was a great first quarter for the Cornhuskers against the No. 6 Missouri Tigers, but the second quarter wasn't nearly as kind.
After jumping out to a 24-0 lead before time expired in the first period, Nebraska already had a big lead, and had scored on three plays of more than 40 yards.
In the second quarter, things began to get dicey, particularly for Taylor Martinez. He absorbed a huge sack on his right shoulder early in the second quarter, and took another hit on his right thigh that had him limping off the field.
If Martinez can't continue, Missouri definitely has a chance to come back and grab this one to get to 9-0. Despite having only 166 yards in the game to this point, a large majority of those came in the second quarter where the Tigers got on the board and managed to finally look like a No. 6 team.
A win in Nebraska isn't all that unfamiliar for the Tigers. They won 52-17 in their last trip to Lincoln in 2008. Maybe they can recapture some of that magic in the second half.
