LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Nebraska's high-powered offense made Illinois pay for its many mistakes Saturday.
The Cornhuskers converted four of the Illini's five turnovers into 24 points while pulling away for a 54-35 win, their third in four games after an 0-6 start.
"We got some good breaks today. We were probably due for some good breaks," Nebraska first-year coach Scott Frost said. "They made a couple mistakes and got us some good situations. You can't take advantage of those if you're not doing the right thing."
