At the half: Huskers 20, Sooners 17
By Jeff Caplan
ARLINGTON, Texas - An Alex Henery 42-yard field goal salvaged an awful second quarter for Nebraska, which leads the Oklahoma Sooners, 20-17.
The Huskers jumped out to a 17-0 lead, but two turnovers have helped the Sooners get back in it. OU quarterback Landry Jones is 12-of-20 for 196 yards with a touchdown and interception. He hit Kenny Stills for two big pass plays, one being a 49-yard touchdown, and the other going 30 yards to the 1-yard line. Jones finished it off to make it, 17-14.
Roy Helu Jr. zipped 66 yards for Nebraska's first touchdown early in the first quarter, but his fumble in the second quarter set up OU's second touchdown.
Ailing Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez started and is just 4-of-11 for 78 yards. The Huskers' one touchdown pass actually came from I-back Rex Burkhead (of Plano) on a 5-yard toss to Kyler Reed.
