Nebraska takes first lead vs. No. 9 Michigan with 15-unanswered points in 3rd quarter
The Cornhuskers aren’t done yet, not by a long shot.
While they were down 19-7 in the 3rd quarter, quarterback Adrian Martinez fired a dime to receiver Rahmir Johnson and he took it to the house. The play was a wheel route and Martinez took one big hit to make that throw.

The fun didn’t stop there, though. After the Cornhuskers got the ball back off a Cade McNamara interception, they scored another touchdown to take the lead before also converting a 2-point conversion.
Martinez found Levi Falck for the 13-yard score as Michigan is now in a heap of trouble.

Michigan has allowed 15 unanswered points after that score and also allowed 22 total points to the Cornhuskers in that 3rd quarter.
If the Wolverines lose, it would be one of the biggest upsets of the weekend as they’re the No. 9 team in the AP poll.
The 4th quarter is currently underway and it can be seen on ABC.
