Terry Rodgers
Official recap
Nebraska piled up an even 500 total-offense yards and closed out the non-conference portion of its schedule with a romp past Nevada-Las Vegas.

The Huskers had three more rushing yards (444) than the week before against Arizona State, when three runners went over 100 yards, but had no 100-yard rushers vs. the Rebels.

UNLV place-kicker Jim Cook provided his team's only points with two fourth-quarter field goals as he tied his own school record with a 53-yarder early in the quarter, then broke it moments later with a 54-yarder. Both barely cleared the crossbar.
