    [​IMG]Rex Burkhead was already nearing 100 yards rushing in the final minute of the first half. On a first down, the Huskers figured they'd have the former high school quarterback try his hand and throwing a pass.

    The faith paid off, and after catching a pitch from quarterback Cody Green, Burkhead hit receiver Brandon Kinnie on a pretty pass down the right sideline for a 26-yard touchdown to put Nebraska up 17-3 late in the first half. That has Nebraska looking like it's on its way to a second consecutive Big 12 title game appearance.

    "We're making plays, they're making plays, but this game is not over," Colorado coach Brian Cabral told ESPN's Jeannine Edwards on his way to the locker room for halftime.

    Colorado managed just 82 total yards against the Blackshirts, compared to Nebraska's 219.

    Nebraska also controls the time of possession by over 10 minutes, with 14 first downs to Colorado's four.

    Former Husker Ndamukong Suh, now a rookie the Detroit Lions after being selected No. 2 in April's NFL Draft, is in Lincoln to see his No. 93 jersey retired at halftime of today's game.
