Stats & recap
Nebraska jumped to a 17-0 lead, but Wyoming cut that advantage to 24-17 heading into the fourth quarter. It was then that the Big Red erupted, starting with Armstrong's 34-yard scoring strike to Jordan Westerkamp. That was followed by a flurry of turnovers by the Blackshirts that turned the game into a rout.
