Huskers rally from 21 down to beat Buckeyes
Things were looking hopeless in Lincoln when Ohio State took a 27-6 lead early in the second half, but the game changed with Lavonte David’s tackle and strip of OSU quarterback Braxton Miller midway through the third quarter.
Two plays later, the Huskers scored the first of their four unanswered touchdowns for the largest comeback win in program history, 34-27.
Quarterback Taylor Martinez’s 18-yard touchdown dash started the Huskers’ second-half scoring spree. On Ohio State’s next possession, the Buckeyes caught a bad break with an injury to Miller.
Nebraska responded with an 80-yard touchdown drive capped by Martinez’s 36-yard touchdown pass to Quincy Enunwa, cutting the deficit to 27-20.
In the fourth quarter, the Huskers drove 72 and 78 yards, with Rex Burkhead scoring on a 30-yard pass play and a 17-yard run.
After being outyarded in the first half by 246-117, the Huskers outgained the Buckeyes 306-105 in the final 30 minutes.
