LINCOLN (KMTV) — The Nebraska football team ended the regular season with a 28-21 win at Rutgers on Friday night.

The Huskers finish the regular season 3-5 and are now 5-0 all-time against the Scarlet Knights.

The NU offense put up a season-high 620 total yards. The Big Red also rushed for a season-high 365 yards.

Adrian Martinez was 24-of-28 for 255 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions. The junior also ran for a career-high 157 yards and two touchdowns.

"We're not perfect," said Martinez. "Far from it. We made plenty of mistakes. Obviously, my game was not perfect either. I think I had four turnovers. But we're fighters. We're going to find a way. I think that's the story of the state of Nebraska and I think that's the story of this school and the direction we're going."

Dedrick Mills rushed for a career-high 191 yards on 25 carries. Wan'Dale Robinson had six catches, for 79 yards and a receiving touchdown as well as a rushing touchdown.
