Rex Burkhead rushed for two touchdowns and a career-high 170 yards and Taylor Martinez threw for 157 yards and another score and the 9th ranked Huskers beat Wyoming 38-14 on Saturday night.
Burkhead had TD runs of 45 and 16 yards, piling up the yards on just 15 carries. His previous career high was 129 yards against Iowa State in 2010.
The Huskers (4-0) gained 490 yards pf total offense, including 333 on the ground, and now get ready for their highly anticipated Big Ten opener at Wisconsin next weekend.
Wyoming (3-1) was led by quarterback Brett Smith, who passed for 166 yards and two scores. The Cowboys entered the game with its first 3-0 start since 1996, although two of their games this year were against lower-division FCS teams and they struggled with Nebraska.
