Nebraska is off to a slow start offensively against Michigan as the first quarter ends with the score at 0-0.
The Huskers have managed just 34 total yards, 19 of which came on a pass from Taylor Martinez to Kenny Bell. That play also accounted for NU’s only first down.
Nebraska, after a chop block penalty, starts the second quarter with first-and-24 from its own 14-yard line.
Michigan also has struggled offensively. But quarterback Denard Robinson has had some success running the football, gaining 33 yards on seven carries.
Other first-quarter notes:
>> Nebraska had a pair of 15-yard penalties. Ciante Evans was called for a late hit and Justin Jackson for a chop block.
>> Michigan had a potential 55-yard pass from Robinson to Ray Roundtree ruled incomplete after the play was reviewed. The Wolverines eventually reached the Husker 36 before Brendan Gibbons missed a 53-yard field goal.
>> The crowd of 86,160 is the second largest for any game at Memorial Stadium. It also is the Huskers’ consecutive sellout No. 323.
