By  | 

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Marlon Lucky ran for a career-high 233
yards and three touchdowns and caught a pass for another score in
No. 20 Nebraska's 52-10 victory over Nevada this afternoon in
Lincoln.
The Cornhuskers rushed for 413 of their 625 total yards, held a
35-9 advantage in first downs and won their nation-leading 22nd
straight season opener.
Nebraska led 21-10 at half and broke open the game with three
touchdowns and a field goal in the third quarter.
Lucky, whose previous high was 156 yards against Troy last year,
turned in the biggest rushing performance for Nebraska since Jammal
Lord ran for 234 against Texas in 2002.
Sam Kellercompleted 14-of-25 passes for 193 yards, including a
16-yarder to Lucky for the Huskers' first touchdown.
Nick Graziano, making his first start for Nevada, was 8-of-24
for 109 yards passing, and he had a team-leading 29 yards rushing.
