With Fyfe at QB, No. 19 Cornhuskers defeat Maryland 28-7
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Terrell Newby ran for a career-high three touchdowns, Ryker Fyfe passed for 220 yards and a score filling in for injured starter Tommy Armstrong Jr., and No. 19 Nebraska defeated struggling Maryland 28-7 on Saturday.
The Cornhuskers (9-2, 6-2 Big Ten) stayed alive in the West Division. They must win at Iowa on Friday and Wisconsin must lose to Minnesota on Saturday for Nebraska to win the division.
Maryland (5-6, 2-6) lost for the sixth time in seven games and has been outscored 149-13 over three weeks.
Fyfe prevailed over Max Bortenschlager in a battle of backup quarterbacks.
Armstrong injured his hamstring scoring the winning touchdown in last week's game against Minnesota. Perry Hills was dressed but didn't play for the Terrapins because of shoulder problems.
