Burkhead, Blackshirts blow by Bengals: Rex Burkhead returned to spark a 35-point first quarter, and Nebraska's Blackshirt defense held Idaho State to minus-11 rushing yards through the first three quarters in a 73-7 win.
   The 35-point first quarter marked NU’s highest-scoring quarter since a school-record 38 first-quarter points against Baylor in 2000.
  Burkhead unleashed a career-long 61-yard run on his third carry to put Nebraska up 7-0 just over three minutes into the game.

Idaho State will be quickly forgotten by fans. ... But not one has walked in Kellogg’s cleats.”

Sipple

Saturday was one of those kind of games – sort of fun, a bit relaxing, but nothing I’d ever pay to see.”

So what did all this teach us about Nebraska’s chances in the Big Ten Conference? Not a thing.”
