LINCOLN, Neb.—The 16th-ranked UCLA Bruins used a dominant second half to storm back from an 18-point deficit and roll over the No. 23 Nebraska Cornhuskers Saturday, 41-21.
In the first half it looked as though the Huskers would get revenge for their 36-30 loss last season in Pasadena. Quarterback Taylor Martinez found Quincy Enunwa for a pair of first quarter scores, and Kenny Bell hauled in one in the second to give Nebraska a 21-3 lead midway through the quarter.
The Bruins found their rhythm after that though, as Paul Perkins scored with less than a minute before half to cut the lead to 21-10.
The third quarter was all UCLA, as Jordon James started the scoring with a three-yard run. Bruin quarterback Brett Hundley then threw three touchdown passes in the quarter, to put UCLA up 38-21 and silence the 91,471 in attendance.
The Bruins added one more touchdown in the fourth to score the final 38 points of the game. UCLA improves to 2-0 on the season while Nebraska falls to 2-1.
The Huskers are back in action Sept. 21 against South Dakota State at Memorial Stadium. That game is set for a 3:30 kickoff and can be seen on the Big Ten Network.
