Huskers run all over Rutgers in 28-21 win
PASCATAWAY, N.J. (WOWT) - In what could’ve been the final game of the 2020 Nebraska football season, there was a little bit of everything in the Huskers’ win over Rutgers.
The final was 28-21
It wasn’t an ideal start for Big Red.
They started with the ball and after moving downfield a bit, Adrian Martinez ran it himself on a third and nine.
He flipped over a defender to pass the marker but lost the ball and Rutgers took over.
They started the scoring with a field goal.
Rutgers would score another field goal before the Huskers finally got on the board on a fourth and goal play where Martinez threw a shovel pass to Wan’Dale Robinson who scored.
The teams would go back and forth until Martinez would score the go-ahead touchdown to go up 28-21 in the fourth quarter.
On the ensuing Rutgers drive, Cam Taylor-Britt would grab an interception to give the Huskers the ball back up seven with seven and a half minutes remaining.
The Huskers would successfully run the clock out.
Martinez, along with Dedrick Mills and Robinson did just about everything for the Huskers.
Mills rushed for 191 yards on 25 carries. Mills also caught six passes for 79 yards.
Martinez was also a great runner with 23 carries and 157 yards.
Despite two lost fumbles and two interceptions, Martinez was also an efficient thrower with 255 yards through the air. He was 24/28.
Robinson got into the endzone twice.
