Rally starter Allen looks to do more for Nebraska

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Taariq Allen introduced himself to Nebraska fans in a big way with a leaping touchdown catch that started the Cornhuskers' fourth-quarter rally against Northwestern.

Before last weekend, Allen's main contributions had come on the punt return and kickoff coverage units.

Allen's breakout against Northwestern came with the Huskers trailing 28-16, after Quincy Enunwa was shaken up making an over-the-middle catch to set up the Huskers at the Wildcats 8.

The touchdown pulled Nebraska within 28-23 with 5:55 left in the game on Saturday and positioned Allen for more playing time this week when Nebraska (5-2, 2-1 Big Ten) hosts No. 20 Michigan (5-2, 3-0) in a game that will give the winner the inside track to the Legends Division title.
