The Huskers needed a spark on offense, and they found it with De'Mornay Pierson-El.
Tommy Armstrong connected with his receiver on a 40-yard touchdown pass to get back in the lead. The extra point made it 17-14 midway through the third quarter.
Two plays before that, Brandon Reilly made a big catch on third down to prolong the drive.
