Scoring fast — and slow
Ameer Abdullah high-steps his way into the end zone as he tops off a quick, one-play drive with a 37-yard run immediately after a 63-yard kickoff return by Kenny Bell. Abdullah ran for 114 yards and scored two touchdowns against Southern Miss. It was his second time over 100 yards in two games this season.

LINCOLN — There was something satisfying about Nebraska's first three offensive scoring drives Saturday night, when each took 10 or more plays and gave the Husker defense some time to catch its breath.
NU receiver Quincy Enunwa knows the value of those, especially with the Blackshirts so young and still learning the ropes — and busy Saturday night as they took two interceptions back for touchdowns and had to come right back out against Southern Mississippi.
