Nebraska is off and running in the season opener against Ohio State!

Entering the game as huge underdogs to the Buckeyes, the Cornhuskers did not waste any time making a statement. Nebraska received the opening kickoff and marched right down the field for a quick touchdown to start the scoring.

The big play of the drive came courtesy of freshman quarterback Luke McCaffrey. With a nice wrinkle on the the play, McCaffrey started as the deep back in the backfield and took a handoff from Adrian Martinez.

Martinez fished the drive off with a short touchdown run for the 7-0 lead:
