LINCOLN, Neb., Sept. 30 (UPI) -- Brett Maher's 41-yard, fourth-quarter field goal capped a late 20-point run that boosted No. 20 Nebraska to a 30-27 comeback over No. 23 Wisconsin Saturday.

The tie-breaking field goal ended an outburst that saw the Cornhuskers (4-1, 1-0 Big Ten) erase a 17-point deficit and stun the Badgers (3-2, 0-1) in the conference opener for both schools.

Taylor Martinez compiled 181 yards on 17-of-29 passing with a pair of TDs and rushed for another 107 yards, scoring both through the air and on the ground in the third quarter.

Joel Stave managed to complete 12-of-23 passes for 214 yards with a TD for Wisconsin.

Jared Abbrederis made seven grabs for 142 yards and a score, while Montee Ball picked up 91 rushing yards on 32 carries for the Badgers.
