So far throughout this third week contest between the Nebraska Cornhuskers and the UCLA Bruins, it’s been the home team in Lincoln that’s held the edge offensively. After the 36-30 shootout we witnessed with these two last season, and the majority of those playmakers coming back, we expected more of the same this year.
In last year’s game, the one thing that Nebraska QB Taylor Martinez did not have in that game was a TD pass. He threw no scoring strikes with one interception.
Today is a little different. Already here in the first half, Martinez has thrown 2 touchdown passes, both to WR Quincy Enunwa, vaulting them to their current 14-3 lead over the Bruins.
The first TD was a beautifully thrown ball on a corner route to Enunwa in which he was wide open in the back corner of the end zone.
But the second one, capping off a 92-yard drive–well, that one was a little more interesting:
Up, up and away, Mr. Enunwa!
