Michigan vs. Nebraska score: Cornhuskers lead Wolverines 7-6 at half

Nebraska opened the scoring in the opening minutes of the second quarter when Taylor Martinez found Kenny Bell for a 32-yard touchdown reception to put the Cornhuskers up 7-0 over Michigan with 13:46 left in the second quarter.

Michigan answered with consecutive field goals to cut Nebraska's lead to 7-6 after two quarters.

Brenden Gibbons made a career-long 52-yard field goal to conclude a 9-play, 44-yard drive by Michigan to cut Nebraska's lead to 7-3 with 8:21 left in the game. Michigan kicker Matt Wile had missed a 53-yard attempt in the first quarter.

Gibbons made his second field goal of the game from 24-yards to cut Nebraska's lead to 7-6 after backup quarterback Russell Bellomy failed to score on three tries from the Nebraska 8-yard line.

Denard Robinson was taken out of the game for the final set of downs in the possession after he suffered a cut to his elbow, according to University of Michigan radio. He is listed as probable for the remainder of the game.

Robinson is 6-of-11 passing for 55 yards and has rushed 10 times for 46 yards.
