Beck, Martinez wary but ready for UCLA defense
UCLA defensive end Datone Jones sacks Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez for a safety during the second half of last season's game in Pasadena, Calif. The Huskers racked up 24 points and 333 yards during the first half of that game. But in the second half, Nebraska mustered only 106 yards and six points in a 36-30 loss.

LINCOLN — As pink skies over the Rose Bowl grew darker last year, Nebraska's offensive prospects against UCLA did, too.
The Huskers spent a half gouging the Bruins' athletic, star-studded unit, racking up 24 points and 333 yards. The second half was a bitter reversal of fortune. NU had nine drives that produced 106 yards, three punts, two turnovers, a safety and three field goal attempts — one of which was missed. On eight of those drives, Nebraska could have taken the outright lead.
