Recap


Nebraska 23, No. 20 Michigan 9:
Kenny Bell caught a touchdown pass, Ameer Abdullah rushed for a score and Brett Maher kicked three field goals as the host Cornhuskers knocked off the Wolverines to move into a tie for first place in the Big Ten Legends division.

Michigan (5-3, 3-1) struggled offensively after quarterback Denard Robinson aggravated an elbow injury late in the second quarter and didn’t return, while Nebraska (6-2, 3-1) persevered despite setting a season low for points scored.

Redshirt freshman Russell Bellomy struggled mightily as Robinson’s replacement and misfired on his first 10 attempts. He finished 3-for-16 for 38 yards and three interceptions while Michigan had only 188 total yards, including 52 in the second half.

Bell caught a 32-yard scoring reception from Taylor Martinez with 13:17 left in the second quarter en route to a 7-6 halftime lead. Maher booted field goals of 19, 51 and 31 yards in the third quarter to boost Nebraska’s lead to 10.

Brendan Gibbons kicked field goals of 52 and 24 yards in the first half for Michigan. His 38-yarder with 42 seconds left in the third quarter pulled the Wolverines within 16-9 before Abdullah (101 yards rushing) scored on a 12-yard run to give Nebraska a 14-point lead with 10:19 to play.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Cornhuskers standout running back Rex Burkhead missed the game with a knee injury. … Michigan totaled 11 yards on its first 19 plays of the second half, a stretch spanning more than 21 minutes. … Safeties P.J. Smith and Daimion Stafford and cornerback Stanley Jean-Baptiste recorded Nebraska’s three interceptions.
