No. 16 Bruins score 38 straight points to erase 18-point deficit, beat No. 23 Nebraska 41-21

Brett Hundley threw three touchdown passes in the third quarter and No. 16 UCLA came back from an 18-point deficit to defeat No. 23 Nebraska 41-21 in a monumental Cornhusker collapse at Memorial Stadium on Saturday.

The Huskers (2-1), wearing alternate black jerseys instead of their traditional home red, looked to be in total control the first half.

Then they couldn't stop Hundley and a UCLA offense that gained 653 yards while beating them a year ago at the Rose Bowl.

The Bruins (2-0) scored 35 unanswered points in 16 minutes. The barrage started with Paul Perkins' 10-yard touchdown run to cut Nebraska's lead to 21-10 at the half.

Jordon James scored from 3 yards before Hundley threw TD passes of 28 yards to Shaquelle Evans, 12 yards to Phillip Ruhl and 3 yards to Nate Iese.
