Taylor Martinez set a Nebraska freshman record with 323 yards passing and threw a career-high five touchdown passes as the 14th-ranked Huskers knocked No. 17 Oklahoma State from the ranks of the unbeaten with a 51-41 win Saturday afternoon in Stillwater.

Martinez, who came in trailing only Michigan's Denard Robinson in yards rushing by a quarterback, showed off his arm while also running for 112 yards on 19 carries.

Brandon Kinnie caught the first three touchdown passes of his career, including an eight-yard lob from Martinez that made it 51-34 in the final five minutes.

Oklahoma State's Kendall Hunter ran for 201 yards, but Nebraska (6-1, 2-1 Big 12) forced the Cowboys (6-1, 2-1) to go three-and-out on three of their four drives in the second half while pulling ahead.
