Nebraska Cornhuskers vs. Fresno State Bulldogs

On Saturday night, No. 21 Nebraska (2-0) will pay a visit to Bulldog Stadium to take on Fresno State (0-2).

The Cornhuskers needed some late heroics to win in Week 2, as Ameer Abdullah scored on a 58-yard catch and run with 20 seconds left to beat McNeese State 31-24. Fresno State enters the game after two road losses to Pac-12 teams: 52-13 at USC and 59-27 at Utah.

This is just the second meeting between the schools; Nebraska won the first one in 2011 in Lincoln, 42-29.
