Rex Burkhead ran for 119 yards and two touchdowns in his return from injury as Nebraska made quick work of Idaho State in a 73-7 rout Saturday afternoon at Memorial Stadium.
The Huskers (3-1) led 35-0 after the first quarter and 45-0 at halftime. The Bengals (1-2), of the Football Championship Subdivision, have lost 34 straight road games.
Burkhead, playing for the first time since he sprained his left knee in the opener, broke a 61-yard touchdown run on his third carry. His 2-yard TD in the second quarter made it 42-0.
Nebraska also got touchdowns on Ciante Evans' 29-yard interception return and Ameer Abdullah's 81-yard punt return, making it the first time since the 2009 game against Colorado that the Huskers scored on offense, defense and special teams.
Idaho State's score came on CJ Reyes' 28-yard pass to Luke Austin in the fourth quarter.
