Big 12—Nebraska hasn’t played a legitimate team until Saturday. There were questions as to whether the Huskers were for real. The 56-21 shellacking of Washington has silenced any critics. The Cornhuskers had three rushers over 100 yards. The Nebraska defense helped provide probable No. 1 NFL draft pick Jake Locker his worst game ever. Locker was 4 for 20 with two picks. The Nebraska offense scored the most points by a Husker at an away game since 2000 Alamo Bowl.
WAC—The Wolfpack got another helmet sticker with their impressive 52-31 win over California. Quarterback Colin Kaepernick passed for 181 yards and ran for 148 yards. Running back Vai Taua rushed for 151 yards. California quarterback Kevin Riley was picked off three times by the Nevada defense. Nevada has scored 49 or more points in all three of its games this season.
