Blackshirts Bruise Idaho 38-17

By  | 

Taylor Martinez ran for 157 yards and two touchdowns, Nebraska's defense intercepted Nathan Enderle five times and had seven sacks as the sixth-ranked Cornhuskers defeated Idaho 38-17 Saturday afternoon at Memorial Stadium.

DeJon Gomes and Rickey Thenarse each ran back interceptions for touchdowns as the defense carried the Huskers (2-0), whose offense
was productive, but mistake-prone against the overmatched Vandals
(1-1).

Martinez went over 100 yards rushing for the second straight game and Roy Helu Jr. added 107 yards and a touchdown on the ground for Nebraska.

Enderle was sacked five times and threw three of his five interceptions on consecutive possessions in the second quarter. Nebraska converted each of those second-quarter picks into touchdowns to go up 31-3 at halftime.
