LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska receiver Quincy Enunwa is taking an "I'll-show-them" attitude into Saturday's game at UCLA.

The junior from Moreno Valley, Calif., drew little recruiting interest from West Coast schools when he was at Rancho Verde High and says he was fortunate when the 16th-ranked Cornhuskers discovered him.

After establishing career highs for catches and yards against Southern Mississippi last week, he goes into the UCLA game with no shortage of motivation.

Enunwa heads a group of receivers whose confidence is extremely high after Taylor Martinez threw for a career-high 354 yards in the opener. While Martinez silenced critics who doubted his passing ability, the receivers showed they can be a force for the Huskers after they struggled with drops in 2011.
