Miami drove down the field scoring on their first offensive drive. Their second touchdown came after a Tommy Armstrong Jr fumble. Both teams had a single turnover in the first half, however Nebraska did not capitalize on theirs.

Nebraska's offense is moving, however. Armstrong is 7-for-9 passing for 101 yards and two touchdowns. Ameer Abdullah is having a Heisman-level performance so far, with 19 carries for 121 yards, with a long of 18. Armstrong has eight carries for 47 yards.

Armstrong's receivers are contributing, Kenny Bell leading with four receptions for 70 yards and a touchdown. Bell's 40-yard catch was the 16th of his career. Jordan Westerkamp only has one catch at half for 14 yards.

Abdullah set a school record for career all-purpose yardage, with 5600 yards. This surpasses Johnny Rodgers' record of 5586 yards.

Brad Kaaya for Miami is had a decent first half, going 11-for-17 for 166 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Duke Johnson has been shut down, however, with 7 carries for 27 yards and a touchdown.
