Burkhead gives Cornhuskers another weapon

It was the kind of day that called for a powerfully built truck of...

No. 25 Huskers' Burkhead returns vs FCS's Idaho St

Rex Burkhead is back, and just in time to test his left knee before Big Ten play starts. The questions entering No. 25 Nebraska's game against Idaho State on Saturday are how many carries Burkhead will get and how effective he'll be after missing two games with a sprained ligament. The Cornhuskers (2-1), who host Wisconsin next week, have run for 250 yards three straight...

Nebraska, Burkhead run through Iowa

Rex Burkhead, who started the week with his right foot in a walking boot, ran for 160 yards and a touchdown on a school-record 38 carries and Nebraska defeated Iowa 20-7 on Friday. Burkhead pounded away at Iowa's defense 4 and 5 yards at a time and looked like his old self after being held to a season-low 36 yards in last week's loss at Michigan. He had eight carries for...

Rex Burkhead, Like A Boss

Originally at the very beginning of the season I predicted the Nebraska Cornhuskers would go 12-1 (Like a Boss). After the @$$ whooping the Huskers laid on Michigan State this Saturday it is safe to say Rex Burkhead is the Team MVP so far. Burkhead ran for 130 yards on 35 carries (3 Td’s) which not only helped for the win it helped for the cover at -4 Nebraska. Burkhead ran like...
