TWTW: Nebraska Brings Mizzou Back To Reality

((HT: KSHB-TV Kansas City))

Roy Helu Jr. rushed for a school-record 307 yards and Number 14 Nebraska knocked 7th-ranked Missouri from the ranks of the unbeatens with a 31-17 victory.

Helu surpasses guys like Mike Rozier and Calvin Jones on only 26 carries. He had three scores from over 50 yards in length, and has six of those this year.

The Cornhuskers, now 7-1/3-1 raced out to a 24-0 lead and into a first-place tie with the Tigers in the Big 12 North. Nebraska ended a 13-game losing streak against Top 10 teams.

Missouri, now also 7-1/3-1 was off to its best start since 1960. The Tigers have lost 17 straight road games against Top 25 opponents since 1997...

Enough stats for you...???
Here's one more... Blaine Gabbert was 18-for-42 on the day and got sacked six times.

Here's your highlights, thanks to our friends at NBCActionNews...
Justin Unell sits at the adult table...

Oh, those of you freaking out about Nebraska QB Taylor Martinez's injury...???
Bo Pelini says that his right knee is just "bruised" and he'll be okay for the Iowa State game next week.

Of course, it's just a bruise...
