The 2015 Foster Farms Bowl has seen the Nebraska Cornhuskers defeat the UCLA Bruins, 37-29, with a dominating ground game.

This recent edition of the Foster Farms Bowl was a battle for approximately 30 minutes. After that, the Cornhuskers gave the Bruins a clinic on how to run the ball all night long.

The UCLA Bruins had jumped out to a 21-7 lead int he second quarter. That all started when Paul Perkins got the scoring going for UCLA early in the first quarter, but Imani Cross of Nebraska had got the Huskers into this game seven minutes later.

Early in the second, the Bruins benefitted from a Nebraska fumble which four plays later had a Josh Rosen pass fall into the hands of Kenny Walker for a 60-yard touchdown. Nate Starks then pulled in a 26-yard pass for a touchdown.

Unfortunately, by then Nebraska figured out the Bruin defense and decided to run the majority of the remainder of the game. The Huskers ran 62 times in this game, claiming 326 yards in the ground, whilst only passing 19 times (which still got them 174 yards).

After Starks’ touchdown, Nebraska then scored the next five times as they got rushing touchdowns from Tyrell Newby, Andy Janovich and Tommy Armstrong, Jr., with a Drew Brown field goal and a touchdown reception by Stanley Morgan, Jr. By the start of the fourth quarter, Nebraska was up, 37-21. It was 21 all at halftime.

The Bruins tried to make it a game late as Jordan Payton finally got UCLA back on the board and had a chance to get down the field to tie the game, but a forced throw by Rosen turned into a Nebraska interception by Chris Jones which sealed the game.
