Minnesota opened the scoring against Nebraska, breaking through after turning over Huskers quarterback Luke McCaffrey.

Though Adrian Martinez started for Nebraska, he continues to split time with McCaffrey. It also appeared that Martinez may have been dinged up early on as he was seen getting checked b Nebraska’s staff on the sideline.

It didn’t take long for that play to result in six points. The Gophers drove deep into Nebraska’s territory before handing it off to Moham Ibrahim.
