Lincoln, NE (Sports Network) - Ameer Abdullah ran for 101 yards and a
touchdown on 24 carries, as the Nebraska Cornhuskers upset the Michigan
Wolverines, 23-9, to take over first place in the Big Ten.
Taylor Martinez threw for a touchdown and completed 14-of-24 passes for 166
yards and rushed 14 times for 58 yards for Nebraska (6-2, 3-1 Big Ten), which
won back-to-back conference games after defeating Northwestern last week.
Denard Robinson was forced to leave the game for Michigan (5-3, 3-1) and did
not return after injuring his elbow in the second quarter. Freshman
quarterback Russell Bellomy took over and struggled mightily to move the
Wolverines' offense. He completed just 3-of-16 throws for 38 yards and was
intercepted three times.
