MINNEAPOLIS (KMTV) — Noah Vedral made his first collegiate start but the Nebraska offense sputtered for most of the night as the Huskers were blown out at Minnesota on Saturday, 34-7.

Wan'Dale Robinson injured his ankle in the 2nd quarter and did not return. He was seen on the TV broadcast in the 2nd half wearing a walking boot.
NU fell to 4-3 overall, 2-2 in Big Ten play while Minnesota improved to 6-0 overall, 3-0 in the league.
Nebraska now has a bye week before hosting Indiana on October 26.
