Adrian Martinez addresses the media following the loss to #9 Michigan on Saturday.
In a hard-hitting four-quarter battle, a late fumble after Adrian Martinez pushed forward for a first down and the short field goal by Michigan’s Jake Moody that followed produced the narrow 32-29 margin for the No. 9 Wolverines to escape from Memorial Stadium on Saturday night.
In an evenly played game, Michigan finished with 459 yards compared to 431 for the Huskers. Martinez led the offense with 18 completions on 28 attempts for 291 yards and three touchdowns. He added eight carries for 38 yards and another touchdown and his two-point conversion.
McNamara led the Wolverines through the air with 255 passing yards on 22-of-38 throwing. Haskins led Michigan on the ground with 123 yards and two scores on 21 attempts, while Corum contributed 89 yards and a touchdown on 13 totes.
Nick Henrich led the Blackshirts with 15 tackles, while fellow linebacker Luke Reimer pitched in 12 stops. Cam Taylor-Britt also played a big game in the secondary, notching 11 tackles and three big breakups.
Nebraska returns to Big Ten road action next Saturday when the Huskers take on Minnesota in Minneapolis. Kickoff is set for 11 a.m. (CT) with live television coverage on ESPN2.
