The Huskers had a crisp, good first half, and have the lead against Maryland to show for it.

Your beloved Nebraska Cornhuskers are beating up the poor, offensively-challenged Maryland Terrapins at halftime, leading 21-0.

Nebraska scored on first their offensive possession, after some crisp passing by backup Ryker Fyfe. Fyfe got the start, his first home start ever as normal starter Tommy Armstrong did not dress to play, still nursing a hamstring injury suffered the previous week against Minnesota. Key on the first drive was a 26-yard pass to Jordan Westerkamp to pick up a first down, then the drive was finished off with a eight-yard touchdown run by Terrell Newby.

Nebraska scored again on the next offensive series. Fyfe picked up a first down on a quarterback draw when the Huskers went for it on fourth down, then Newby scored his second touchdown of the day on a five yard run.

The third touchdown came right before half when Westerkamp caught a four yard reception from Fyfe after a 16-play drive that covered 78 yards and took 6:06.

Nebraska could have had more. A Drew Brown field goal attempt was blocked by heavy Terp pressure coming off the right side.
