Northwestern Upset Nebraska, 28-25

    Second-string quarterback Kain Colter ran for two touchdowns and passed for another to lead Northwestern to a 28-25 upset of No. 9 Nebraska on Saturday.

    Filling in for injured starter Dan Persa in the second half, Colter scored from the 1 with 1:34 left to finish a 13-play, 66-yard drive that chewed more than 7 minutes off the clock after the Cornhuskers had pulled to 21-18.

    Taylor Martinez, who passed for 289 yards and two scores, hurriedly moved Nebraska (7-2, 3-2 Big Ten) down the field. He hit Kenny Bell for a 14-yard touchdown with 18 seconds to play, but Charles Brown recovered the onside kick and Northwestern (4-5, 2-4) ran out the clock.

    Persa injured his left shoulder in the second quarter when he was slammed to the ground by Eric Martin.

    Colter ran for 58 yards and completed four of six passes for 115 yards.
