No. 13 Nebraska beats Minnesota for 15th straight time

Nebraska and Minnesota may have met for the first time in 21 years on Saturday, but the result remained the same.

Taylor Martinez passed for a touchdown and Rex Burkhead ran for another, as the 13th-ranked Cornhuskers beat the Golden Gophers, 41-14, at TCF Bank Stadium.

Martinez completed 13-of-22 throws for 162 yards and added 52 yards on the ground, while Burkhead gained 117 yards on 23 carries.

Nebraska (6-1, 2-1 Big Ten) has won 15 straight over Minnesota (1-6, 0-3), outscoring the Gophers 594-114 since losing in Lincoln on September 24, 1960.

Marqueis Gray ran for the first of Minnesota's two second-half touchdowns, but finished with just 122 yards on 9-of-18 passing while committing a turnover that led to a Nebraska score.
