    Foster Farms Bowl Recap

    Score: Nebraska 37, UCLA 29

    Prediction:UCLA 35, Nebraska 28, Line: UCLA -6.5, o/u: 61

    And You Care Because … Down 21-7 midway through the second quarter, Nebraska brought out the power running game on the way to 30 straight points and the upset win. Tommy Armstrong ran for a score and threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to Stanley Morgan Jr., and Terrell Newby and Imani Cross each ran for short scores as the Husker offense cranked out 500 yards. UCLA got up early with Josh Rosen finding Kenneth Walker III for a 60-yard score, Nate Stakes for a 26-yard touchdown, and Paul Perkins ran for a one-yard score, but the offense stalled until late – partly because Nebraska’s running game controlled things and kept the ball away from the Bruins. Rosen closed out the scoring with a nine-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Payton, but that was it – Nebraska was able to close it out.
