Nebraska School History
Taylor Martinez rushed 241 rushing yards, the most in school history by a quarterback. He also tied a school record for quarterbacks with four rushing touchdowns.
Martinez is the third player this season (along with Temple's Matt Brown and Oklahoma State's Kendall Hunter) to rush for 200 yards and have four rushing TDs in a game. He now has 12 rushing touchdowns, which leads all of FBS.
Martinez now has 737 rushing yards in five games this season. That's fourth-most in a single season by a Nebraska freshman. He's also averaging 10.8 yards per rush -- the single-season school record (minimum 100 rushes) is 8.3 by Calvin Jones in 1991. Martinez has 68 rushing attempts this season.
Historically, a 5-0 start usually translates to a successful season for the Cornhuskers. This is the 12th time since 1990 that Nebraska has started at least 5-0. In five of those years, the Cornhuskers won three Big 8 titles (1993-95) and two more in the Big 12 (1997, 1999). Nebraska has also played for the national championship five times, winning three.
