Maybe it’s something about the Nebraska defense that brings out the best in Clayton Thorson.

After the Northwestern quarterback totaled a career-high 126 yards rushing against the Huskers last year, Thorson is off to a similar start this year.

He ripped off this 42-yard touchdown for the game’s first touchdown.

Thorson and Tommy Armstrong are their teams’┬áleading rushers to this point. If history is any indication, Thorson might have one or two of those up his sleeve.
