NCAAF Game Recap: Northern Illinois (8) vs. Nebraska (44) - Date: 9/14/2019 Sep 14, 2019LINCOLN, Neb. Nebraska took out some frustration on Northern Illinois after letting a win slip away last week. Adrian Martinez threw for two touchdowns and ran for another and Dedrick Mills rushed for 116 yards in the Cornhuskers' 44-8 win Saturday night. Profitable Handicappers. The Cornhuskers (2-1) bounced back from blowing a 17-point lead in an overtime loss at Colorado. NIU (1-2) won 21-17 in Lincoln two years ago but was no match this time. Nebraska had 525 yards of total offense and posted its largest margin of victory over a Football Bowl Subdivision opponent since a 39-point win over South Alabama in 2015. ''The offense wanted to prove something, and in the second half we wanted to finish the game,'' Martinez said. ''That's half the battle. Our guys approached it the right away today. '' Martinez threw for 257 yards and had 301 yards of total offense, the ninth time in 14 career starts he's gone over 300. ''Adrian is going to keep getting better, too,'' Frost said. ''There are still some things he needs to learn. But he's still a true sophomore. He's a really good player and he's going to make whatever plays we need him to. '' Maurice Washington scored the Huskers' first two touchdowns on their way to a 30-5 lead at half. He took a short forward pitch from Martinez to the end zone right after Austin Allen recovered punter Matt Ference's fumbled snap at the NIU 21. Sports Handicapping Service Leads. Three series later, Washington ran left and beat safety Trequan Smith to the corner. Safety Marshe Terry had an angle on him, but Washington zoomed past him for a 60-yard run, the longest of his career. ''What's made us good as a staff is always keeping a foot on the gas,'' Nebraska coach Scott Frost said. ''I want our guys to play like that all the time. '' Mills, who averaged under 3 yards per carry in the first two games, raised that to an eye-popping 10. 5 against NIU. ''It feels amazing,'' Mills said. ''First couple of weeks I was rushing the run instead of being patient and finding the holes. This week in practice I emphasized slowing down and making the right cuts. '' Mills, who broke a 61-yard run in the first quarter but fumbled on the next play, scored from 24 yards and Kanawai Noa caught a 27-yard TD pass just before half. Sports Picks for Today. The Huskers mounted a goal-line stand early in the fourth quarter, with Eli Sullivan breaking up a pass on fourth down from the 1, and held the Huskies to 74 yards rushing. ''Obviously, not our best performance,'' NIU coach Thomas Hammock said. ''We wanted to give ourselves a chance. We didn't do that early. Credit to Nebraska, they had some explosive plays, which we knew could happen. '' THE TAKEAWAYNorthern Illinois: The Huskies were competitive for a half against 11th-ranked Utah last week. Against Nebraska, they couldn't establish a ground game and Ross Bowers, who threw for 248 yards, didn't find his rhythm until his team was down four touchdowns. Nebraska: The Huskers did what they needed to do before they open Big Ten play. They took a couple hits to their health, though. Safety Cam Taylor-Britt left with what appeared to be a shoulder injury in the second quarter and left tackle Brenden Jaimes had to be helped off the field in the fourth. HUSKIE GIVEN HEAVE-HONIU safety Trayshon Foster was ejected for targeting in the first quarter. He led with his helmet when he hit receiver JD Spielman above the shoulders on an incomplete pass along the sideline. DICEY KICKING SITUATIONBoth teams struggled in the kicking game. Isaac Armstrong, whose miss from 48 yards ended the Huskers' overtime loss at Colorado, had plenty of leg on a 36-yard field goal to open the scoring. But he had an extra point and 37- and 32-yard tries blocked. Armstrong, the starting punter, has been filling in as kicker for the injured Barret Pickering. Lane McCallum, an Air Force transfer listed as a safety, kicked two extra points in the second half. Punting and kickoffs were adventures for NIU. Ference fumbled a snap and had a punt blocked. Instead of tempting fate, the Huskies lined up as if they were going for it on fourth down twice in the second quarter and had Bowers pooch punt out of the shotgun. The Huskies also had two kickoffs go out of bounds. UP NEXTNorthern Illinois plays Vanderbilt on Sept. 28 in its third straight road game against a Power Five conference opponent. Nebraska opens Big Ten play at Illinois next Saturday. ---More college football: https://apnews. com/Collegefootball and https://twitter. com/-Top25
