Northwestern holding 21-16 lead over Nebraska

Junior running back Venric Mark broke free for an 80 yard touchdown run early in the third quarter for Northwestern, but Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez came back with a short three-yard touchdown run with just over a minute remaining, cutting the Wildcats lead to 21-16.

Nebraska tried for a two-point conversion, but Wildcats sophomore safety Ibraheim Campbell got the tackle to stop the play.Mark’s run came on a hand off from Kain Colter with 12:17 remaining in the third. Colter was under center for that play, but sophomore Trevor Siemian was taking most of the snaps in the game.
