The Bengals (1-2), of the Football Championship Subdivision, have lost 34 straight road games.

Burkhead, playing for the first time since he sprained his left knee in the opener, broke a 61-yard touchdown run on his third carry. His 2-yard TD in the second quarter made it 42-0.

Nebraska also got touchdowns on Ciante Evans' 29-yard interception return and Ameer Abdullah's 81-yard punt return, making it the first time since the 2009 game against Colorado that the Huskers scored on offense, defense and special teams.

Idaho State's score came on CJ Reyes' 28-yard pass to Luke Austin in the fourth quarter.
