LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Nebraska took out some frustration on Northern Illinois after letting a win slip away last week.
Adrian Martinez threw for two touchdowns and ran for another and Dedrick Mills rushed for 116 yards in the Cornhuskers' 44-8 win Saturday night.
The Cornhuskers (2-1) bounced back from blowing a 17-point lead in an overtime loss at Colorado. NIU (1-2) won 21-17 in Lincoln two years ago but was no match this time.
