Game notes

Utah State

Nebraska gave up a heartbreaker, as the Cornhuskers failed to put the game away while leading by 4 midway through the 4th. A Seminole defender stripped the ball from Nebraska IB Tyreese Knox as he ran in from the FSU 2, which set up a 97-yard FSU march for the winning touchdown with 3:07 left to play.
