L INCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska
rushed for more than 400 yards against
Washington while the Cornhuskers' defense
forced six turnovers and battered a quarter-
back who was touted as one of the nation's
Right now, No. 2 Nebraska looks as pow-
erful as ever to just about everyone except
coach Frank Solich.
"We played well and we're 4-0," Solich
said after Nebraska's 55-7 victory Saturday.
"But the moment you think you're good,
that's when you start to take steps back."
It was Washington's biggest loss since
1975 and dropped the Huskies (2-1) from
No. 9 to No. 20.
"It was a very impressive win from a
team that under Frank Solich is right in step
with (Bob) Devaney and (Tom) Osborne,"
Washington coach Jim Lambright said.
With I-back DeAngelo Evans and quar-
terback Bobby Newcombe back from last
month's knee injuries, Nebraska rushed for
434 yards and had 527 total yards. Coming
in, the Huskers had averaged 259.7 yards
Evans gained 146 yards on 13 carries and
had touchdown runs of 60, 14 and 19 yards.
It was his first action since the 1996 Big 12
title game after missing last season with an
injured abdominal muscle.
"It was a fairy-tale thing," Evans said. "I
was nervous but I felt relaxed. When I got

the first hit, all that went away."
After Newcombe's 3-yard touchdown run I
on the game's first series, Evans scored on
three of the next four possessions. After full-
back Willie Miller's 3-yard touchdown 5:12
before halftime, Nebraska led 35-0.t
"I think at halftime, all of their running
backs were averaging seven yards a carry," I
Lambright said. "We didn't have very good
answers with our defense."
Meanwhile, the Nebraska defense pound-
ed Washington's Brock Huard with the same
game plan that knocked him out in the first
quarter of last year's game at Seattle with an
Defensive end Chad Kelsay batted 1
Huard's first pass and almost caught it.
Kelsay later had an interception, as did
lineman Jason Wiltz, who returned after;
missing two games with an injured ankle.
Huard was sacked three times and was
hit hard on nearly every play. He also fum-
"He's not the kind of quarterback who
can sit back in the pocket and feel comfort-
able when there's a lot of bodies flying
around," Kelsay said,
"It's nice to know coming off the ball

He's worried about somebody taking his
Nebraska sometimes stacked up to four
extra defenders on the line, usually hitting
Huard with blitzes by linebackers and cor-
Most of Huard's passes were rushed.
Others were overthrown or thrown away.
If not for Huard's 6-yard touchdown pass
to Joe Jarzynka late in the first half,
Washington would have gone scoreless for
the first time since 1981.
"This stings, this hurts," said Huard,-who
was 18-of-32 for 160 yards.
"You just want to crawl into a hole. You
can't believe this happened on national TV."
Washington was the last visiting team to
win at Lincoln -in 1991.
Since then, the Huskers have 45 straight
home wins and an 18-game winning streak
Nebraska is 11-0 in the past five seasons
against Top 10 teams.
Nebraska quarterback Bobby Newcombe ran through the Washington defense last Saturday as his
Cornhuskers prevailed in a runaway, 55-7.
