Getting a handle on the Huskers
Husker I-back Ameer Abdullah lost a fumble early in the fourth quarter after this hit by UCLA outside linebacker Anthony Barr. The ball was recovered by UCLA safety Anthony Jefferson. That ended a 69-yard Husker drive. The rest of the second half, Nebraska totaled 66 yards in 27 plays.

LINCOLN — For 17 plays and nearly seven minutes in the first quarter, Nebraska's offense moved methodically for 92 yards, mixing its run and pass calls to keep UCLA from settling in.
The Huskers got their athletes in space and showcased their skills, exciting the soldout crowd with stop-and-starts, jukes and spins. Quincy Enunwa capped the drive by skying high over defenders and soaring and spinning into the end zone, and it appeared — for a moment — that the Huskers had found their groove.
