  • Rex Burkhead rushed for two touchdowns and a career-high 170 yards while Taylor Martinez threw for 157 yards and a score to lead Nebraska to a 38-14 win at Wyoming Saturday night.

    The Huskers (4-0) rolled up 490 yards total offense, including 333 on the ground, in their first road game of the season and last game before their highly anticipated Big Ten opener at Wisconsin next weekend.

    Burkhead had TD runs of 45 and 16 yards. He carried the ball 15 times for an average of 11.3 yards per rush. His previous career rushing high was 129 yards against Iowa State in 2010.

    Wyoming (3-1) was led by quarterback Brett Smith, who passed for 166 yards and two scores. The Cowboys entered the game with its first 3-0 start since 1996, although two of their games this year were against lower division FCS teams.
